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.

The survey is sent to young patients (or to the parents/carers of patients under 16 years old) who were admitted to hospital.

This survey will be sent to approximately 9,000 people each year who attended one of the three specialist children’s hospitals – The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney Children’s Hospital and John Hunter Children’s Hospital.

There are three versions of the survey depending on patient age:

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

In 2014, the survey was mailed to approximately 30,000 people who were admitted at one of the more than 80 public hospitals across NSW. At this time there were two versions of the survey depending on patient age:

  1. A survey for the parents/carers of children aged under 8 years
  2. A survey for the parents/carers of children and young people aged 8 to 18 years.

This full survey will occur on a three year rotation, occurring again in 2017.
