Feedback gathered from more than 1,000 patients treated at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital show high satisfaction levels, bosses said today.
Valuable patient feedback is gathered every month at the hospital using innovative touchscreen technology.
The hospital uses the Dr Foster Intelligence Patient Experience Tracker system, which has portable "tablets" that patients use to key in answers to a range of questions about their care.
During December 2009 and January 2010 more than 1,000 patients (1,066) gave their feedback on services across the hospital from the emergency department, the medical and surgical wards, and the Arthur South Day Procedure Unit.
