This report usefully investigates just what is happening on the ground in relation to listening to patients, collecting feedback about their experience of services and putting the intelligence that is gathered from different approaches to use. Based on interviews with patient experience managers and others in NHS trusts closely associated with the work of collecting, analysing and using data from patients, it provides answers to questions about: Who is doing this work? What kind of training and preparation do they have for the tasks? Who supports them? Where do they fit in their organisation? To whom do they report? And how do they feel about their roles?
