Friends & Family Test
The practice is very keen to hear about all patients' experiences. If you would like to provide feedback, please click on the "Friends & Family Test" icon on the right of this page or complete a feedback card when you are at the surgery. Alternatively, you can text back your satisfaction score when you receive an invitation text message after an appointment at the practice.
All GP practices in England are using this simple questionnaire as a quick way to collect feedback from their patients in order to improve their services.
It is recommended that patients sign up for Online Services (link on the right of this page). This allows patients to book and cancel appointments and to order repeat medications, all at the touch of a button from their phone, tablet or PC. Appointments for the following day are released at 7 pm each evening (Sunday for Monday appointments). Most patients find this a much easier way to book than waiting on the phone.
