Summary of report content

Healthwatch Nottingham and Healthwatch Nottinghamshire were approached by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to support the planning process for the 2015 inspection of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. This report presents a summary of the patient experiences of the acute services provided by the Trust. The experiences are collected through four main channels: Direct methods include Healthwatch engagement activities, our websites, telephone and email. Their online monitoring system collects evidence from Twitter, blogs and news sites. Patient Opinion, although this data has only been collected by Healthwatch Nottinghamshire since May 2015. Information sharing data includes experiences passed to us from neighbouring Healthwatch. Only experiences collected between 1st February 2014 and 2nd September 2015 were included. Evidence collected by the two Healthwatch organisations is presented together. 536 patient experiences were gathered between 1st February 2014 and 31st August 2015.
