Friends & Family Test

The Friends and Family Test (FFT) is an important feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience. Listening to the views of patients and staff helps identify what is working well, what can be improved and how.

The LMC has produced a guidance document on this subject, and our latest document can be found here:  Friends & Family Test v2  07072022
