National Inpatient Experience Survey launches at Mayo University Hospital


National Inpatient Experience Survey 2024 launches at Mayo University Hospital

The National Inpatient Experience Survey is a nationwide survey asking patients about their recent experience in hospital. The survey is a partnership between the Department of Health, the Health Service Executive (HSE) and the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA).


All patients aged 16 and over, discharged in May, who spend 24 hours or more in a public acute hospital and have a postal address in the Republic of Ireland will be asked to complete the survey. Day cases, maternity, psychiatric, paediatric and other specialist services are not included in this survey.


Research consistently shows that patient experience surveys help to identify best practice and areas for improvement to patient care. Studies have shown that improvements to patient experience can bring about higher staff satisfaction and better patient safety and wellbeing.
