GP Patient Survey 2018
We are pleased that from the small sample of surveys this has given results above the national average. The focus seems to be upon appointments to which we can report that new innovations are being formulated which will include a link on this website to allow an electronic consultation with a GP replying back by the end of the next working day, plus an ongoing review of our service delivery. Each month the Friends and Family questionnaire which runs to hundreds of replies consistently reports more than 90% of patients hold the Health Centre and it's service in the highest feedback category of satisfaction. Our aim remains to continuously improve.
