PERFORMANCE: Friends and family ratings for every ward at the University Hospitals of Leicester Trust will now be published on the trust website.

Under the national test 15 per cent of adult patients who have spent at least one night in hospital or attended A&E are asked whether they would recommend the trust.

During the past year, a total of 20,000 paper surveys have been returned along with more than 10,000 replies by email or card.

By publishing the results on its website at www.leicestershospitals.nhs.uk the trust is hoping it will improve standards of care.
