Our Services NHS Professionals Academy Personal Development Courses Giving and Receiving Feedback

Giving and Receiving Feedback


Feedback is an essential part of every developmental and performance journey. Ongoing feedback is part of a healthy and transparent organisational environment. Well delivered, it can provide opportunities to build skills, improve communications, enhance relationships, and improve patient safety. Yet, for many, giving and receiving feedback can prove challenging. What if we cause offence? What might the reaction be? This course examines the key themes and benefits of creating a feedback culture within your Trust or ICS to genuinely improve teamworking and the patient experience.
