Patient feedback surveys for clinicians

We are able to offer a choice of two patient feedback tools; our own Interpersonal Skills Questionnaire (ISQ) or the GMC Patient Questionnaire (GMC PQ). Both are suitable for appraisal and revalidation as well as professional development purposes.

About patient feedback surveys

The patient survey is typically a paper based post-consultation exit survey. CFEP provides all the necessary materials, including questionnaires, envelopes, ballot boxes and guidance notes.

The below table provides further information and comparison between these surveys.

1 Extensive validation and testing of our questionnaires determined the minimum number of completed questionnaires required to provide reliable and robust feedback. If your appraisal/revalidation body requires a greater number of responses, please let us know as soon as possible to ensure a report is generated only when the required number of responses to satisfy your appraisal/revalidation body has been received.

N.B. The GMC does not prescribe a minimum number of patient or colleague responses that a doctor is required to collect for appraisal or revalidation purposes. Guidance on the supporting information for appraisal and revalidation states: 'When using standard questionnaires, the independent provider will be able to tell you how many responses you will need, to give an accurate reflection of your practice.'
