The practice has introduced a feedback system called the Friends and Family Test for all patients and carers to let us know how we are performing. To access this please use the link above that will take you to the questionnaire. There will be facilities in the surgery to give your feedback electronically or on paper.
We welcome all feedback as it allows us to review how we are providing care and where we may need to consider changes.
Please remember that you can always give feedback via the NHS Choices website as well.
