With the expansion of the Patient Experience Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), we can see a reassuring picture of elements which can impact patients experience. Ward and service staff continue to review and learn from feedback and complaints, in particular the upheld complaints. Notably, patient recommendations in the Friends and Family Test (FFT) continue to be high. Executive Summary Complaints Activity </p> <p> comparable number of complaints recorded in comparison to previous month, with no untoward theme identified in subjects or grading of complaints; </p> <p> all complaints were acknowledged within the 3 days timescales and a previous administrative error was rectified, which led to a decline in performance last month; </p> <p> whilst performance has improved significantly, investigation leads can frequently fail to keep the Patient Experience Team informed of developments and progress, leading to duplicated efforts. This has been escalated to Associate Directors of Operations through Audit and Operational Governance Group (AOGG) meetings; </p> <p> no complaints were escalated to the parliamentary ombudsman, and learning and themes have been disseminated to wards including a new quality </p> <p>briefing paper which is issued to all staff. This paper includes a section on feedback from patient feedback and lessons learnt from complaints, which will enable better triangulation and also support wards to learn from patient feedback. </p> <p> Patient Feedback </p> <p> A&amp;E Response Rates whilst patient recommendation continues to be notably high in all areas when compared to regional and national rates, there has been a decline over the last two months in response rates in A&amp;E. The response rate has improved slightly in comparison to previous months, however still remains below past performance which has been in excess of 28%. The FFT survey remains a critical element of a patients journey and is the only tool used in A&amp;E to measure patient satisfaction. Actions being taken to address this comprise of: - Targeted awareness campaign including floor-walks to be carried out by the </p> <p>Trust FFT lead and Deputy Director of Nursing to engage with staff and patients. - A&amp;E reception staff hand out survey forms with any paperwork they provide </p> <p>patients - Weekly collection and monitoring of surveys to resume as previously done when </p> <p>patient participation declined.
