APRIL – 2022




Really friendly staff, wouldn’t change anything




Trying to keep to the appointment time, but i know this is very difficult.
I’m sorry that I took up more time than I should have today


I wouldn’t change anything the nurses have been spectacular especially jess.




Please ask receptionist to look at patient when speaking to them as not all disabilities are visible, I have a hearing problem and if someone looks down while they are speaking to me I have difficulty in deciphering what info they are giving me.




Change nothing as the help and friendly staff were excellent.




I certainly don’t have a problem with the overall experience, and I am very satisfied with the attention from the doctor and nurse I saw.




I am happy with all the treatment I get from, receptionists, nurses and all the doctors so I don’t think I would change anything




I haven’t got a good reason to change anything. I understand the difficulties doctors have at this time with Covid very definitely with us still. I have always been looked after really well. Doctors, nurses and reception staff are first class. Thanks.




I would not change a thing the appointment and service were excellent. The nurse was efficient, friendly, extremely helpful and explained everything clearly.




The surgery is excellent and could not suggest anything. Very friendly reception staff, nurses and doctors. I feel very fortunate to have such a brilliant practice. I really appreciate the hard work that you all have to do to give such a service.




Less time on recorded messages before speaking to someone.




I can’t think of anything, we are new to your practice & are very happy with the service we have received.




Nothing regarding the appointment itself apart from the waiting time before there was availability for it. However I understand how stretched the service is?




Had blood test. Josie as always was on time & I had my blood test done quickly & efficiently. Thank you for an excellent visit.




2 visits this week GP and blood test. Both excellent, on time and both clinicians with good people skills, reception helpful and pleasant




No change needed




My care has been very good. I have no negative feedback




Just slightly more privacy at the reception area so general public would not be able to overhear personal conversations.



MARCH – 2022




Todays treatment was excellent. Thanks for enquiring.




I saw Kirsty and she was so kind, gentle and patient.




I think of any other way the service could be improved




Tea and biscuits would be nice! No, everything was nice and friendly

Nothing at all excellent nurse xx

It was good, no need to change anything.




Nurse was very friendly and efficient. Appointment was on time and very quick and easy.




Everything was OK l was seen on time, nurse was very nice so no complaints. Thank you




I was very happy with my treatment and appointment with Tracey, Practise Nurse




Everything was so good
I was treated with respect and care
From Dr Grana nurses & reception Also happy retirement to Dr Davenport
Thank you all


Brilliant, just the que at reception when people don’t have an appointment




Kirsty asked how my general health was very pleasant and wished me a happy birthday for Friday.




The care I received was excellent, the nursing staff are doing a Wonderful job.
It would be more beneficial and efficient to have computerised requests and itemisation rather than have to rely on the nurses to interpret doctors handwriting.


FEBUARY – 2022




Satisfactory so don’t change anything




To make sure that my prescription for methertraxate is issued when I put my repeat prescription in as countless times over the years I have had to chase it up.




Not sure it could have been improved.




All excellent




Nothing, I cannot fault anyone at the practice. Very grateful its are Dr’s.




The nurse was very helpful when my pushchair wouldn’t fit through the door. She was also very friendly while taking my blood.




Nothing, very supportive and professional.




Not been with this surgery for long but my experience so far has been very good.  No complaints.




You already improved




The nurse tried 3 timed to find my cervix and it was painful.




The surgery is excellent and all is well.




Fine as it was




Quick efficient and very friendly




Nothing ..all very professional friendly service




Nothing it was excellent as usual




I wouldn’t change anything




No improvement needed ??




No change Really pleased with the treatment room staff.




Quick response to blood results
