Patient/relative satisfaction survey
Feedback from relatives of patients in the liver intensive care unit is active sought in the form of a regular questionnaire. The feedback obtained helps us to target future initiatives and improvements, and serves as an important quality measure. The most recent relative feedback forms are available on request.
Outcome data is scrutinised via ICNARC (a national resource for the monitoring and evaluation of the provision of intensive care) and MEDTRAK (a locally implemented audit service).
