Patient Satisfaction

King Edward VII’s Hospital is committed to consistently delivering the highest standards of personalised, patient-centred care.

As a quality-driven organisation, your safety is our number one priority, and your physical and emotional needs are considered every step of the way at what can be a vulnerable period in your life.

We believe every patient should be treated as an individual and we have a ‘no-compromises’ attitude when it comes to making your stay as safe and as comfortable as possible.

The feedback we receive in our patient satisfaction surveys not only re-affirms why we do what we do, it also helps us to move forward in our provision of care and customer service. The results are collated each month by an independent external healthcare company and we are proud to share them with you.
