Patient Feedback for July 2019

Would you recommend us to your friends and family?

Your 47 responses divide up as follows:-

POSITIVE 57%                                                       NEGATIVE 19%

NEUTRAL 10%                                                       DON’T KNOW 15%

Thanks for all your positive responses. Much appreciated.

Negative responses related to: –

  • Having to chase a form several times
  • Having difficulty using our website  
  • Having to wait over an hour past the appointment time
  • Not getting an appointment for a child on the day

We are sorry for any distress caused.

  • Actions / responses – We will review our communication regarding requests to fill in forms which are often not NHS work and therefore not a priority.
  • Please let us know the details of any difficulty in using our website as we would wish to correct that as soon as possible. 
  • Waiting times are discussed regularly and GPs are conscious to keep waiting to a minimum. Sometimes it is unavoidable.
  • We now have access to more appointments in the evenings and would always try and accommodate children

Thank you
