Patient and Family Feedback

New patient story

Auditory implant users are often asked what they think of our service. We listen to all feedback and are always making changes in order to improve. We would love to receive more comments about our service. Therefore, if you have an idea of how we could improve please get in touch.


Results of the Friends and Family Test

Patients with Auditory Implants attending the Auditory Implant Service for a review are being asked the following question:

 “How likely are you to recommend the University of Southampton Auditory Implant Service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?”. With answers on a scale of extremely likely to extremely unlikely.

This is known as the Friends and Family Test which is being used in Hospitals and Clinics used by NHS patients and service users as a way of assessing the quality of the organisation.
