North Cumbria – Friends and Family
From April 2013, every NHS hospital will be required to ask patients on our wards or in A&E whether they would
want a friend or relative to be treated there if they needed similar care or treatment. Patients will be asked to
consider their answer from a choice ranging from extremely likely to recommend to extremely unlikely. Patients who
are extremely likely to recommend are considered to be ‘promoters’ – people who having had a very positive
experience are very loyal enthusiasts who will keep returning to the Trust and refer others. ‘Detractors’ are the
opposite - those who say they are unlikely or extremely unlikely to recommend – those that don’t feel strongly
either way (neither likely nor unlikely to recommend are also included in the detractors group.
The friends and family score is then calculated by the % promoters - % of detractors. It is possible to end up with a
negative score if your service has more detractors than promoters. The score can range anyway between -100 and
100.
2 minutes of your time Friends and Family – March - June 2013
To meet national requirements and guidance, we are inviting inpatients to complete a ‘2 minutes of your time’ postcard which
they return to us, sealed in an envelope, on their day of discharge. The scores for the last three months are shown below. The
total friends and family score for inpatient care is +54.83%.
