Feedback Updated 29 Jul 2013

We Asked

We consulted on a proposed collection which had the purpose of collecting data on the level of NHS service offered by provider trusts at weekends, compared to the Monday to Friday offer to establish the baseline position in respect of the NHS service offer at weekends, which is reduced compared to weekdays, and is associated with poorer outcomes for patients, including a raised mortality risk.

You Said

There were no concerns raised about this collection but a comment was made on the wording of one off the questions.

We Did

The collection owner amend the wording of a question. As no other concerns were raised we approved the collection.
