Friends and Family Test
We would be grateful if you would complete a short survey either online Here or when you visit surgery (complete a card). The feedback can be good experience as well as bad.
This feedback is used to give current and prospective patients information about experiences of those who have used our service.
New Text Messaging Service
Please inform us of your mobile phone number
We have introduced a new text messaging service that will automatically remind you of your appointment if we have your mobile phone number on your records. This has proven a great experience for patients and it will allow you to cancel an appointment by text message. This will help with freeing up appointments where patients have not attended and forgotten to cancel.

On the day access
As many of you are aware, we have listened to your comments and have been running pilots in collaboration with your Patient Group . From June 2014 we have been operating on the day appointments for people who feel they cannot wait for the next bookable appointment and we have had very positive feedback from this pilot. The PPG met in October 2014 and decided to ask the practice to keep with this system. The GP's and staff agree this seems to be the best system so far from both patient and staff prospective. Please remember these appointments should not be used for routine problems as they are short appointments. You may be asked to book a routine appointment if the doctor feels your problem can wait.
Online appointments, repeat prescription ordering & *Access to records on line*- To register for this service please contact the reception.
Please note:* you will need to provide photographic ID and agree to conditions to register for access to records online- ask reception for details.
