Friends and Family Test in General Practice
The Friends and Family Test (FFT) is a feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use the NHS should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience, which can be used to improve services.
You can view a short video explaining it in more detail here.
The primary aims of the FFT are to:-
- gather useful feedback from people who use services that can be fed directly to the staff that provide their care, in a simple format, in near real time.
- identify areas where improvements can be made so practical action can be taken
- inform current and prospective patients about the experiences of those who use the practices services
The FFT question asks if people would recommend the services they have used and offers a range of responses, with a freetext option for additional comments.
A copy of the questionnaire is available in reception at the surgery or can be downloaded here FFT Questionaire 2.
