Invitation to be part of the development of a National Paediatric Patient Report Experience Measure (PREM)
SIGN UP to join our focus groups or interviews
Help us to understand the experience of kids getting care in hospital
Feedback from children and young people is valuable in understanding how we can improve the care provided in hospitals.
Paediatric Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) are a survey tool that can be given to a child or young person to provide feedback on what could be improved in the hospital setting. CHA is partnering with Starlight Childrens Foundation to develop a PREM tool to measure your child’s experience of care in hospitals services.
