GP PATIENT SURVEY

Some patients registered here will soon be invited to take part in a national survey about their experiences of local NHS services.  Please complete the survey if you are sent one and please do not hesitate to discuss any concerns you have with our Practice Manager. These surveys are so important as they highlight the work we do well and show us areas we can focus on for improvement.
In the last Survey you told us that it was hard to get though on the phone, since then we have made huge improvements to our phone system and how we manage and monitor calls. Your Feedback makes a difference!
