National Patient Experience Survey

28 April 2017

For the first time in Ireland, a new nationwide survey will ask patients for their views on hospital care.

The National Patient Experience Survey, a joint initiative by HIQA, the HSE and the Department of Health, goes live on 1 May 2017.

All adult patients who have spent a minimum of 24 hours in a public acute hospital and are discharged during the month of May will be asked to complete the survey. The responses will be combined to produce reports at both the national and local levels, with the data used to set priorities for a better healthcare service for patients and staff alike.

With 40 participating hospitals and an estimated 27,000 patients eligible to participate, this will be the largest single survey of the healthcare system ever conducted in Ireland.
