The results of the 2016 inpatient survey indicate that there have been small, but statistically significant improvements in a number of questions, compared with results dating back to the 2006, 2011 and 2015 surveys. This includes patients’ perceptions of:

  • the quality of communication between medical professionals (doctors and nurses) and patients
  • the standards of hospital cleanliness
  • quality of food

However, the results also indicate that the results of some questions have been less positive. This includes patients’ perceptions of:

  • being involved in decisions about their care and treatment
  • information sharing when leaving hospital
  • waiting times
  • support after leaving hospital
