The NHS Friends & Family Test
We have recieved really usefull feedback about the things we could change to make the practice better for everyone including patients and staff. There were a lot of comments about the morning triage system not working well as patients felt they were getting dumped on the list and not being delt with efficently. Also that patients could not book an appointment with their own GP.
After internal review and discussion we have now removed the triage system and increased our appointment avaliabilitly each day. Our new appointment system has increased the number of appointments also with named GP's each day.
Give your feedback through the Friends and Family Test and suggest ways we could improve our services or let us know what we are doing well. This can be done by clicking the 'Friends and Family' tab on the left or in the surgery at both Blue and Green desks.
