PATIENT SURVEY FINDINGS

The practice undertakes a survey of patients who have contact with the practice (face to face or telephone consultations and collection if prescriptions) within the past year with the question

"Would you recommend your GP practice to someone who has just moved into the local area?"

"Please add any comments you would like to make about the practice?"

Our practice undertook this survey.  We have just under 5900 patients and as a result we asked over 120 patients the above question.  This was carried out after seeing the GP/Nurse, calling at reception to collect prescriptions and also on the telephone when dealing with patient's queries over a week long period.  This allowed us to seek responses from different ages, sex, ability and ethnicity.

A total of 95% of the survey revealed that they would be extremely or likely to recommend to friends or family.

Comments received as follows:

I am very satisfied with GP practice.

Very helpful.

I find that they do their best to give you an appointment when required.  Failing that they are happy enough to do a telephone consultation and will sort out an appointment as soon as possible.

I have been with these doctors my whole life and wouldn't fault it.  The staff are very helpful.

Overall very good.  All staff helpful, polite, friendly and informative.

Excellent.

My practice staff have a caring manner from receptionist to doctors.  I get the best advice and care from them all.

I have been coming to the surgery since I was a child and I am now 69 years old.  I am very happy to continue being a patient and look forward to many more years of attending here.

Very efficent staff and a feel good factor about the practice
