Improving Patient Experiences A New Patient Feedback System Aims To Improve Patient Experience Working with patients to improve services and “The Patient Experience” is at the forefront of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s (NHSGGC) priorities. One of the best ways to do this is to capture comments from those who receive health care services or cares for someone who receives a service; e.g. patients, relatives and volunteers. NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (NHSGGC) has launched an online Patient Feedback system to enhance present methods of receiving patients views. PLEASE VISIT: www.nhsggc.org.uk/patientfeedback Your comments will be fed directly to frontline service providers to highlight where NHS GGC can improve services and where services have worked really well and could be replicated.

The PPF Has A Virtual Resource Library Available To All: We have information on: Disability / Dementia / Autism / Cancer / Healthy Living / Mental Health / Older People / ED CHP Info / NHS Scotland Publications / Scottish Government Health Consultations.
