Results - Care And Treatment

Summary

The survey results show that 90 per cent of people were positive about their overall care and treatment.

All the characteristics investigated indicated a significant impact on differences seen in responses relating to people's experience of their care and treatment. In general older people, males and people staying in community, general and other type hospitals are significantly more positive for aspects of their care and treatment.

People who reported fair or poor health; live in SIMD 3, SIMD 4 or SIMD 5 (least deprived) areas and those admitted as an emergency are significantly more negative for aspects of their care and treatment.

Care - overall

Fourteen of the survey questions relate to people's experience of the care and treatment they received. All characteristics investigated are associated with variation seen for these questions (Figure 6).

Care and treatment

All characteristics related to care and treatment questions are detailed in Table 8. Older people are significantly more positive than those who are younger. Males are also significantly more positive than females for all aspects of care and treatment.

People staying in other types of hospitals and general hospitals are significantly more positive than those staying in teaching hospitals regarding getting help with aspects of care such as washing and dressing.

Involvement with Care and treatment

All characteristics related to patient's involvement with care and treatment questions are detailed in Table 9. Males were significantly more positive than females regarding questions around the response to clinical errors. Older people were also significantly more positive than young people regarding some of the questions to do with involvement in their care and treatment.

People who were admitted to hospital as an emergency, living in SIMD 4 or SIMD 5 (least deprived) areas were significantly more negative regarding questions relating to involvement in care and treatment.

People who reported their health as either fair or poor were also more negative than those who reported good health, this is reflected in the people who reported pre-existing health conditions also being significantly more negative.
