“Your Experience” Survey
The Patient Experience Team has recently been working with our service users and staff to put together a brand new Trust wide feedback survey. The “Your Experience” survey is a fantastic opportunity for our service users, carers and family members to feedback any critiques or areas of excellence they have experienced. The results of these surveys are continually monitored and reviewed by the teams and senior members of staff. The Trust is committed to learning from your experiences and feedback to ensure we are continually improving our services.
Download a copy of the “Your Experience” survey if you are a service user.

Please ensure your completed survey is returned to your clinical treating team.
What is the Friends and Family Test?
The Friends and Family Test (FFT) is an easy to understand question that is being asked of service users about the care they have received by NHS providers all over the country. The FFT question has been included in the Trusts “Your Experience” survey and is the opening question: “Overall, how was your experience of our survey?”
For more information about the Friends and Family Test, visit the NHS England website or watch a video on YouTube.
Service User Involvement and Engagement Strategy
The Patient Experience Team is extremely proud to announce our brand new strategy that was co-produced by service users, for service users in September 2020.
This strategy outlines the importance of actively involving service users, their families and careers, in shaping, delivering and evaluating their care and the future direction of the Trust.
This strategy has been developed and designed by service users of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health and Community services, through a series of workshops held throughout the Trust. Service users were asked what involvement and engagement would look like to them, how we could approach this at the Trust, and what milestones we should aim to achieve within the next three years of strategy delivery. The final document is an impressive Involvement and Engagement strategy written by service users, for service users!
