Friends & Family Test Results

The NHS want you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service.

It is based on one simple question:

"How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?"

Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience – what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you’re helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.

Patient feedback

We asked the question:
Any further comments?

I rang for my test result I was told it was borderline. I arranged a phone consultation the DR told me it was negative and that I shouldn’t ring for test results as the surgery ring you if there is a problem. I questioned this but the doctor was adamant this is correct. Surely this is not correct? He told me to get a blood test and to go straight to mill drive for a test and that I didn’t need an appointment when I got there they turned me away as you do need an appointment. I cannot understand how a doctor can give such incorrect information. It doesn’t give me confidence at all

I really experience problems with repeat prescriptions for my father. Not all elderly people have a mobile phone he lives alone and very often goes without his tablets as there seems to be miscommunication between the Pharmacy and the Surgery. Its often very hard to get past the receptionists for appointments. I do understand that they have very difficult roles as everyone thinks they are a priority however on occasions they have been very frosty. The Doctors have always however treated him with a lot of dignity and respect The systems could be improved and consideration to adapt services for those that sit under the 9 protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010
