Rural Hospital Adult Admitted Patient Survey
The Rural Hospital Adult Admitted Patient Survey asks for feedback from people who have recently been admitted to one of the smaller NSW public hospitals, typically in rural locations.
Each year we send surveys to around 15,000 people from these facilities, approximately three months after the end of their hospital stay.
Prior to mid-2019, the Rural Hospital Adult Admitted Patient Survey was known as the Small and Rural Hospitals Survey.
To find out about upcoming releases of results from the Rural Hospital Adult Admitted Patient Survey, please refer to our Reports Plan.

Overall, most patients said they had positive experiences of care, 'very good' 77%, 'good', 19%
