Neil Churchill Director of Patient Experience - (Domain 4 Lead) Measuring, Understanding and Acting on Patient Experience Insight
Why is insight into patient experience important? “ The data presented display that patient experience is positively associated with clinical effectiveness and patient safety, and support the case for the inclusion of patient experience as one of the central pillars of quality in healthcare” A systematic review of evidence on the links between patient experience and clinical safety and effectiveness British Medical Journal
What does a “very good” experience mean? Source: GP Patient Survey 2012-2013 Very good Fairly good Neither Poor All respondents who answered the question (948,758) QOverall, how would you describe your experience of your GP surgery?
How do we take our love of doctors into account? Q. “For each, would you tell me whether you generally trust them to tell the truth or not?” Base: 1,026 United Kingdom adults aged 15+, 10-16 June 2011Source: Ipsos MORI/BMA
To what extent do we need to tackle “gratitude bias”? Data: BSA 1983-2010. Each data point represents >100 respondents Net satisfaction with the running of the NHS
So what impact will the changing demographic have on satisfaction? Proportion of UK population from each generational grouping Source: Eurostat 2010: All adults aged over 66 1983: All adults aged under 39 2010: All adults aged between 45 and 65 2010: All adults aged between 44 and 31 2010: All adults aged under 31
How was your experience? (1) Adult Inpatient Survey 2012 I had a very good experience Base: 61399 (all respondents). Fieldwork: Sept 2012 – Jan 2013 Source: CQC/Picker Institute 18% rated their overall experience lower than 7/10 I had a very poor experience
How was your experience? (2) Adult Inpatient Survey 2012 Base: 61399 (all respondents). Fieldwork: Sept 2012 – Jan 2013 Source: CQC/Picker Institute BUT 62% reported at least one aspect of poor care 18%62% Poor overall experience Experienced some form of poor care Overall experience measures good for tracking satisfaction but not for rooting out problems?
CASE STUDY “I went to the dentist, reported to the receptionist and the receptionist forgot about me. I’m not used to my sight loss and lost my orientation and couldn't bring myself to ask anyone for help and just felt too nervous to shout out or anything. I ended up sitting there for hours and it was an extremely frightening experience.”
Patient experience is closely linked to patient involvement and engagement Experience Involvement Being involved is part of having a good experience Involving patients is one means to understanding and improving experiences Individual Individual and collective

Ensuring we listen and act on feedback from vulnerable patients
Accessible Information Standard There is a formal process to develop an Information Standard. We are asking people for their views to inform the details of the standard, which we will start to write in spring 2014. There will be a formal consultation on the draft standard in summer 2014. We are expecting to have a final version of the standard approved in autumn 2014 – organisations will then have up to 12 months to comply.
