The NHS Friends and Family Test

Used all across the NHS, the Friends and Family Test was designed to help providers and commissioners understand whether their patients are happy with the service provided, or where improvements are needed. It is a quick and anonymous way to give your views after receiving care or treatment across the NHS.

In 2018, more than 1,200 patients completed Friends and Family forms. Over 91% would recommend the Weardale PracticeP

Friends and Family Test forms are available in all Practice locations. All feedback is greatly appreciated and considered.

The Quality Care Commission (CQC)

The CQC is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. They regularly monitor and inspect health services to make sure fundamental standards of quality and safety are met. All their findings and performance ratings are published to allow people to make the most informed choices about their healthcare.

In the most recent CQC report, published in April 2017, the Weardale Practice was given an overall rating of Good.
