The purpose of this form is to capture information which can be used by commissioners in their quality monitoring of hospital services.

This form was developed jointly by commissioners and families in recognition of the vital role families have in observing the care and treatment their family members receive while in hospital.

The purpose of the form is to make it easier for families to clearly record their observations and feed these back to commissioners – what’s going well and what’s not, including any immediate risks, concerns or issues that need to be addressed.

The forms may help to structure the discussions you have with commissioners about hospital services.

They will also provide additional insight, information and evidence for commissioners which can be used in their quality monitoring of hospital services.  This will help to ensure that ongoing care is of a good quality, meets individual needs and is provided by staff who understand how best to support your family member.

The form is not intended to be shared directly with hospital services. We recognise that families often develop a direct relationship with staff at hospitals and may be concerned that any criticisms of care and / or treatment may have a negative impact on this relationship.  As a result this form is intended to be shared with commissioners only.
