Friends And Family Test

The NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT) was created to help service providers and commissioners understand whether patients are happy with the service provided, or where improvements are needed.

It's a quick and anonymous way to give your views after receiving NHS care or treatment.

Since the FFT was launched in 2013, millions of patients have submitted feedback. It's used by most NHS services, including community care, hospitals, mental health services, maternity services, GP and dental practices, emergency care, and patient transport.

Resources and guidance

You can email england.friendsandfamilytest@nhs.net if you have any questions about the FFT.

The survey questions ask how likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment.

The answers rank from "extremely likely" to "extremely unlikely". 

Filling out the FFT form

You'll be asked: "Overall, how was your experience of our service?"

You can rank your answer from "very good" to "very poor". You'll have the opportunity to explain your score by adding comments, and you may also be asked some follow-up questions. This is important because service providers can only make changes if they know exactly what is or is not working.
