Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs)

PREMs are a once-off capture of a patient's perception of what happened during their health care visit and views about their hospital experience, as well as their satisfaction with our health service. Inpatients are invited to participate in the online survey about their recent experience via SMS within 48hrs of their discharge from our facilities.
