The 2013 patient satisfaction survey results are out and it's official...98% of patients rate Spire Edinburgh Hospitals as ‘excellent’, ‘very good’ or ‘good’. Not only that, 97% of the people who were treated here before would definitely or were likely to recommend us in the future.
Making sure our patients are well looked after is our top priority. Every year, Spire Healthcare carries out an independent survey to find out how patients think we’re performing. In 2013 20,772 patients who had attended one of the 37 Spire Healthcare hospitals between 1st June and 31st August 2013 were randomly selected, contacted by post and asked to complete a survey.
