We are looking forwatrd to working with you. Here is some information for you about the challenge. I hope you will register and join in!

Nine ambitious patient experience projects are about to start spreading their ideas to other areas of the NHS, after being selected as winners of the NHS Patient Feedback Challenge. The NHS Patient Feedback Challenge, created and managed by the NHS Institute and funded by the Department of Health, is a one year programme designed to find and spread great approaches which use feedback from patients to improve services.

Since April, NHS organisations have been collaborating, sharing ideas, building projects, and bidding for a share of the £1m Patient Feedback Challenge fund, which was set aside to support the most promising approaches to measuring and improving patient experience..”

The projects are as follows:

Partnerships inspiring changes to services, culture and lives - Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Valuing Frontline Feedback - Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Trust

Patient Partners - Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust

Patient and Family Echo - East Cheshire NHS Trust

Both Sides Now - NHS North East London and the City

Improving Healthcare Together- Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Kinda Magic - Peninsula Community Health CIC

Real Time Patient Stories - South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

iCARE - Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

An essential element of the NHS Patient Feedback Challenge is the web channel where people can share ideas, make essential connections and identify spread partners. It is an excellent way to stay in touch with the projects as they progress - visit the web channel for more detail on each of the projects and to become a project follower: http://pfchallenge.clearvale.com/pg/dashboard/

A package of patient experience research and on-line support is also available to support NHS services to improve patient experience: Transforming Patient Experience: the essential guide (www.institute.nhs.uk/theguide).
