2:00pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in News
HOSPITAL patient surveys will be posted out tomorrow to 850 patients who spent at least one night in hospital in Colchester during August.
Patients will be asked about their experiences, such as quality of care, pain control, communication with doctors and nurses, hospital food and cleanliness.
Every NHS hospital trust in England is carrying out the survey as part of a national programme led by the Care Quality Commission.
