Principle: Patient centred care - meet requirements of patients/carers (their perspective) Standard patients can state: 1. I knew who was in charge at all times 2. I was kept informed about my illness & my care discussed with me 3. I knew who to ask about my care 4. New staff explained their role 5. All the staff I met were well informed about me & my illness 6. In hospital my care was provided by one team on one ward 7. Throughout my admission I was kept informed about my discharge 8. Following discharge, the staff in the community were well informed: about what happened in hospital & what care I needed 9. I was clear about arrangements for my care after my discharge and who to contact if I became unwell
