The questionnaire was developed using the requirements of the NHS 111 Minimum Data Set. It will allow providers to gather the required information for reporting as well as being able to monitor the experience of patients using the service.
The methodology follows that operated during our standard out of hours patient experience surveys, although the NHS 111 Minimum Data Set specifies that the sample should include at least 200 users of the single point of access service in that six month period (rather than the 1% used in current Out of Hours surveys).
