PPG Survey 2019
Here is our Patient Participation Survery for 2019 Thank you to all our patients for completing this survery this helps us to make specific changes for our patients in our practice. PPG 2019 Survey
Our Responses - We have made changes in response to the Patient Participation Survey by:
- Opening our appointment booking system to allow patients to book up to 4 weeks ahead.
- Changed our practice website.
- Advertise and promote the use of evening and weekend appointments for patients at our local out of hours hubs.
- Have specific information stands in the practice waiting room and speakers for the meetings.
Booking a Routine Appointment
Our routine appointments were being booked up-to 6 weeks ahead thus not allowing for patients to be seen earlier for a routine appointment. We also have a large proportion of patients who did not attend for their appointments. We have now changed the system so patient can only book up 4 weeks ahead to prevent patients having to wait up-to 6 weeks ahead and fewer patients who do not attend for their appointments.
Extended Hours Appointments
Cancelling an Appointment on line
To cancel appointments on line please access online services. Any appointments you wish to cancel within 24 hours please phone the surgery direct. Appointments for Monday Mornings should not be cancelled later than Thursday on the website.
