PERFORMANCE Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust NHS has reported a robust performance on the new patient satisfaction survey, the friends and family test.  

Four out of every five people who have used NHS mental health and learning disability care in Hertfordshire would recommend the service to their family and friends, the trust reported.

Hertfordshire Partnership is one of a limited number of mental health organisations running the friends and family test which will be rolled out further this year, beginning with all acute NHS trusts from April 2013.
