NHS Friends & Family Test
Would you recommend our service to your friends and family?
The NHS friends and family test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you to provide feedback on the NHS services that we have provided. Your feedback will help NHS England to improve services for everyone. Whilst the FFT has been used in hospital settings since 2013 it only became available for NHS Dental Services in April 2015.
How does it work?
The FFT asks: ‘How likely are you to recommend our dental practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?’ You will be invited to respond to the question by choosing one of five options, ranging from “extremely likely” to “I don’t know”. You will also have the opportunity to explain why you have given your answer, so please answer any follow-up questions.
Do you have to respond to the question?
Your answer is voluntary. But if you do answer, your feedback will provide valuable information for us, and identify opportunities to make improvements. Your answer will not be traced back to you, and your details will not be passed on to anyone. Does this replace the complaints procedure or other forms of feedback? No, this will not replace the current complaints procedure or other forms of feedback.
