In JUNE 2019 we asked our patients to think about their recent experience of our service and to rate how likely they were to recommend our GP Practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment. The responses were as follows:-
Neither Likely or Unlikely
We received 50 Friends & Family Test forms during JUNE 2019 which is fantastic.
Thank you for helping us improve our service to you by completing one of these forms. Remember that each time you visit the surgery your experience will be different and it is important that you share this with us.
You've been giving us feedback on your care and treatment. Here are some of the comments you made about the reason why you gave the rating you did:

I am generally really happy with the experience I have with the surgery. The reason why I gave a 2 is because both myself and my husband have not been notified of important blood test results in the past.

Doctor Gurung was extremely helpful as have other partners been in the past
I would have put Extremely Likely instead of Likely but the phone appointments are becoming harder and harder of the morning to get through to someone.
Dr Manivannan gave me a thorough examination and advice.
Previous poor experiences from family consultations.
We're listening and this is what we're doing:
Thank you to those of you who took the time to complete one of our Friends & Family Tests and for sharing your experiences with us. All of comments received have been published with our patients' consent and if you would like to see the full report from our Friends and Family Test, please ask at Reception for further details. We are delighted to receive such positive comments which have been shared amongst the surgery team.
Of course, we cannot get things right all of the time and without your feedback we are unable to look at areas where we do need some improvement.
We recognise that it is becoming increasingly difficult to get through on the telephone. We have introduced a third receptionist to work as a 'back office' functionality to help with the volume of phone calls during busy times. We are also looking at ways at streamlining certain services to enable more contact online or by email, to free up our phone lines during peak periods. You can help us, whenever possible, by contacting us at less busy times or by emailing the surgery with your query. Our emails are checked frequently throughout the working day.
Having your say helps to improve care for everyone so please keep putting us to the test by giving us your feedback each time you use our services.
