Consolidates results from surveys in the National Patient Survey Programme to give overall experience for the NHS against 5 broad headings.
The OPES series measures overall patient views on the care they receive in the NHS. The statistics are produced using results taken from the national patient survey programme, published separately but on the same day by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The OPES series covers outpatient, inpatient, community mental health and accident & emergency settings with results published separately for each setting.
Official statistics are produced impartially and free from any political influence.
