Questionnaires to improve our service
We might ask you to take part in our clinical outcomes programme. This helps us improve our service and offer the best treatments.
We ask you to fill in extra questionnaires about your health and quality of life, before and after your treatment. These are called patient reported outcome measures (PROMs). Your feedback helps us measure the outcome of your treatment at different times. We encourage you to take part, however if you do not want to, it will not affect your care.
The information we collect includes your:
