Watchdog to release findings of largest survey of patient experience in NHS hospitals

On  Tuesday  15  May,  under  embargo  until  Wednesday  16, the Healthcare Commission  will  release  the findings of the 2006 Acute Inpatient Survey. The experiences and opinions of more than 80,000 hospital patients from 167 acute and specialist trusts were collected in one of the biggest surveys of its kind.

Patients  answered  questions  about  a  range of issues including hospital food, mixed-sex accommodation, waiting times and cleanliness. Media will be sent  a  private  URL  on  Tuesday, through which they can access all media materials  and spreadsheets detailing percentage responses to each question for each trust.
