Welcome to the website for the Northern Ireland 10,000 Voices Initiative. Patient experience is recognised as a key element in the delivery of quality health and social care. In line with this the Public Health Agency and Health and Social Care Board are carrying out an extensive work across all Health and Social Care Trusts with the aim of introducing a more patient-focused approach to services and shaping future health and social are in Northern Ireland.

What is 10,000 Voices?

The 10,000 Voices Initiative gives you an opportunity to tell us your experience of receiving health and social care and in particular highlight what is important to you and what matters to you.
