Friends and Family Test
We started collecting data from December, the results so far are displayed on this graph. If you would like to add your views you can do so in the practice waiting room using one of the cards displayed or using the touch screen monitor, on System Online for those of you that book appointments and order prescritions online, or by clicking the heading on the right hand side.
We have introduced a new service for our most vulnerable patients who are at high risk of unplanned hospital admissions and would benefit from more tailored, active support from the practice.
These patients will have a named GP and a Care-Coordinator, if you are identified as a suitable patient for this service we will let you know. You may still see your clinician of choice even if they are not your named GP for this service.
Youdo not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further with us, please contact us at the surgery
