Patient feedback for the ICU setting

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) has developed a validated patient feedback tool for ICU doctors, including neonatologists and intensivists, to use in ICU settings – Paediatric Carers of Children Feedback (PaedCCF) ICU. 

The ICU version has been specifically piloted for use in this setting and participants’ result reports show comparison against other paediatricians working in these settings, rather than paediatricians generally.

Rounds run over 12 months to allow for the challenges of collecting feedback in this clinical area, and are open to career grade doctors only.

The maximum number of returned responses is 40 but we can also provide early results reports with fewer responses for revalidation purposes once a round has begun. A further updated report can then be provided once further responses are received.  

The cost is currently £40 to RCPCH members and £60 to non-members,
