Friends and Family Test
The Friends and Family Test (FFT) is a single question survey which asks patients whether they would recommend the NHS service they have received to friends and family who need similar treatment or care.
GP Practices can use the feedback gathered through FFT to celebrate successes and to support staff to make improvements where the experience of services does not live up to expectations.
