Have you had a good or bad experience of using NHS services? Why not feedback your experience, using the friends and family test?
You can say what you think about NHS services; including hospitals, mental health and community services; NHS dental practices; ambulance services; patient transport services and even your GP practice.
It can be helpful to know what other people think of services in your area as it can help you decide which GP practice to register with or which hospital to choose for treatment. Not only that, it helps the service themselves to know what they need to improve on.
