Royal College of Physicians Collaborates with NHS England and Patients Association to Shape New Outpatient Care Strategy
27 September 2023

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP), in conjunction with NHS England and the Patients Association, is embarking on a pioneering venture to develop a new outpatient care strategy within the National Health Service (NHS). At the heart of this initiative lies a comprehensive survey launched by the Patients Association, a dedicated patient advocacy group championing enhancements in healthcare experiences.

The survey aims to ask for invaluable insights into patients' encounters with NHS outpatient services, serving as a cornerstone in the development of the ground breaking strategy. The collective endeavour is poised to redefine the landscape of healthcare delivery, ensuring that patients receive the best possible care in outpatient settings.

To facilitate broad participation, the Patients Association has extended an open invitation to individuals, urging them to not only complete the survey themselves but also to distribute it widely among their communities. The project is keen on gathering a diverse range of feedback from patients to ensure that the new strategy addresses the varying needs and experiences of individuals across the NHS.

Additionally, RCP has taken Twitter to promote the survey. Interested parties can engage with @RCP_FFFAP to join the conversation and further amplify the importance of patient involvement in this critical initiative.

The survey can be accessed here, providing a seamless avenue for participants to contribute their perspectives on outpatient care.
