Males were more positive than females for 19 out of the 47 questions analysed – around two fifths. No clear areas of care stood out within the analysis, with the significant responses appearing sporadically throughout the survey. The other 28 questions did not show any significant differences by gender.

Similar analysis carried out on the Scottish Inpatient Experience Survey [2] and various English Patient Experience Surveys (Inpatient, A&E, Outpatient & Primary Care Trusts) also showed males to be more positive than females about their care.
