Patient Surveys 2017


Surgery Patient Survey 2017


A patient survey was available to patients throughout January/February 2018, this was in the surgery and could also be downloaded from the website.


The results were reviewed with the doctors and staff and with the Patient Group at a meeting held on 22nd March 2018.


The results reflected that a high percentage of patients were very satisfied with the service that they receive and it was difficult to identify any areas where action could be taken.


  • 100% of patients had trust and confidence in the doctors
  • 100% of patients had trust and confidence in the nurses
  • 98.41% of patients found the receptionists helpful
  • 96.97% of patients would recommend the surgery to someone moving to the area

It has been brought to our attention that a patient feedback comment (Q10) has been misquoted, the comment should have read:


I think that the surgery should be providing annual reviews for all chronic illnesses  not just the popular ones such as diabetes etc. please turn the TV off or lower the volume. Patients don't want a TV blaring at them when they are feeling ill.


We would like to apologise for this error.



Pharmacy Patient Survey 2017


The results of the pharmacy survey, which showed a great improvement with the service and patient satisfaction from the previous survey.


There is now a more robust process in place whereby if a medication is not going to be available long term then patients will be advised and switched to an alternative medication; to avoid repetitive changing, they would then remain on this unless they could not tolerate the drug.


A re-audit was undertaken recently to find how many prescriptions meet the 48 hour turnaround time compared to this time last year.  The figures have gone from 96.7% to 99.5% so this again reflects the improvements made in the pharmacy.

To view a copy of the results from the survey please click here

  • The patient survey was available from 24th October for three weeks

  • 2.73% of registered patients completed the survey

  • The results from the patient survey were reviewed by the patient group at a meeting held on 19th November 2016
  • The results from the survey and the minutes of the meeting were also sent to the virtual patient group members to review and for their comment prior to final issue
  • All patients that left their contact details were telephoned by Lorna Gardiner, Practice Manager
Action Plan Agreed
  • Being seen on time – Agreed to display a poster advising patients that if they have not been seen within 15 minutes of their booked appointment time to ask at reception.
  • The partners have reviewed the 10 minute appointment time and considered increasing this to 12 minutes per patient but are going to monitor this and review again in the new year.
  • Where patients have indicated ‘no’ on the survey it was agreed to ask for reasons on next years’ patient survey i.e. were you offered a routine appointment within 7 days – answer ‘no’ but realise that without a reason this cannot be addressed.
  • WIFI access requested – this is being implemented next year.
  • Lack of nurses appointments – the complex wound care service has been terminated with the CCG - this has now freed up 1-2 hours of nursing time per day.  We understand that the CCG have contracted the community nursing team to carry out this service.


Pharmacy/Dispensary Survey


There is a separate survey which is still running for the pharmacy and dispensary, if you would like to complete a pharmacy/dispensary survey please click here to download a copy, or alternatively there are copies available in the pharmacy.
