Call to improve hospital care for children and young people

CQC has published the results of a survey designed to capture the experience of hospital care for children and young people and their parents or carers.

Over 33,000 respondents in 129 NHS acute and specialist trusts in England participated in the survey which shows that overall young people have good experiences of care in hospital with 70% of those aged 8-15 reporting that they were looked after “very well”. Eighty-two percent of parents of younger children said they were “always” well looked after. The survey also identified a number of areas for improvement.
