Admitted Children and Young Patients Survey

The Admitted Children and Young Patients Survey asks for feedback from children and young people (and their parents/carers) about their recent admission to a NSW public hospital.

Each year, it is sent to approximately 10,000 young patients (or to the parents/carers of patients under 16 years old) who were admitted to one of the three specialist children’s hospitals – The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney Children’s Hospital and John Hunter Children’s Hospital.

Every third year, on a rotating basis, it is mailed to more than 40,000 young patients (or to the parents/carers of patients under 16 years old) who were admitted to one of the 78 public hospitals across NSW. The survey of all NSW public hospitals is taking place again in 2017 (fieldwork is currently underway).

As of 2015, the survey comprises three different questionnaires depending on patient age:

  1. A questionnaire for the parents/carers of children aged under 8
  2. A questionnaire for the parents/carers of young people aged 8 to 15, which includes a section for the young person to complete
  3. A questionnaire for young people aged 16 to 17 at the time of hospital admission, which is intended to be completed by the young person.
