The patient voice can now improve healthcareRate your doctor, share your story and become part of the change that will ensure everyone can receive truly great care. Experiences and views of patients and their carers show that there is a huge range in quality of care received – not only in clinical outcomes, but in the actual experience of receiving care. iWantGreatCare empowers a doctor's patients, patients' carers and relatives and colleagues rate them using objective criteria derived from the evidence base for patient satisfaction. Everything added to the site is seen and used by doctors and organisations to help them improve the service they provide.

iWantGreatCare is an independent organisation. Total independence from the NHS, BMA, GMC and all other regulatory and supervisory organisations in healthcare allows you and other users of iWantGreatCare to be certain there is no bias, modification or censorship of iWantGreatCare ratings and reviews. The opinions and ratings of patients and their carers and relatives are the most important component of iWantGreatCare.  

The small team managing iWantGreatCare passionately believe that by empowering patients to share their experience, knowledge and opinions we can drive changes and improvements in the health service that will benefit all. iWantGreatCare believes that patients and their carers need to be fully engaged in the future of healthcare services, and this means having effective, meangingful ways to exercise choice.  

The iWantGreatCare team brings together healthcare professionals, patient groups and others with a passion for making sure that every patient in the UK gets the very best care – and that every doctor gets the benefit of being able to monitor how effective they are in the eyes of their patients.

“Services should be designed with input from users, using the ‘wisdom of crowds’ and drawing on delivery-end experiences to inform providers about the usefulness of the services they provide. 

This approach is hardly innovative, but it may provide a new way of doing things within healthcare that will lead to improved services which are designed using the most honest and reliable information about the service – user satisfaction.”
