UIN 224909, tabled on 23 February 2015

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment his Department has made of the patient experience of people with diabetes.

Answered on

2 March 2015

NHS England surveys capture the experiences of people with a wide range of conditions including diabetes but, with the exception of the cancer patient experience survey, they are not condition specific. As part of a forthcoming review of patient experience surveys, NHS England will consider whether it is best to collect information as it does currently or by specific conditions.

Professor Jonathan Valabhji, the National Clinical Director, has reported that last year’s Patient Experience of Diabetes Services pilot survey, which collected information from people with diabetes about their care, received very positive feedback.
