Making a difference to our community

Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT) wants to ensure you have the best possible experience when using our services. Patient experience can be described as ‘what the process of receiving care feels like for patients’. We want to understand this and use our findings to make things even better. At NHFT, we value the views of our patients, carers and all those who use our services, capturing direct feedback. We also encourage working together to co-produce services. This means involving you in designing how we best serve those who are cared for by NHFT.

Through good patient experience and involvement, we want to continually improve our services and make a difference to you and the wider community.

Patient Feedback - have your say!

Your feedback is extremely important to us - it tells us what we are doing well, what we need to improve and what we need to change. By providing feedback, you help us understand what is important to you and allow us to take action so that everyone who uses our services has an outstanding experience. We listen, we act, we respond.

Depending on your circumstances and how you are accessing care at NHFT, your service will ask for your feedback and guide you through the appropriate survey. You can also contact the Patient Experience Team to give feedback about your experience of care with NHFT at
