We Ask - You Speak - We Listen - We Learn - We Change
We've carried out an internal survey on our practices and we think we're pretty good at what we are doing. However, that doesn't mean we are good, and it doesn't mean that we are serving you as a community; because only you can tell us that. Help us to find out that what we are doing well - and more importantly, that what we are not doing so well, and what you think we should be doing in order to make us 'What Good Looks Like' in the field of being a successful Medical Practice. Thank you for your consideration.
Update 2 Nov 17
We have just been informed that one of our patients has recently had a cold-call, at around 21:30 during an evening, from someone claiming to be from our practice - and trying to gain entry into their house. The patient called the Police who in turn advised that our practice should be informed.
We will never cold call
Our hours of service are from 08:30 - 18:00 Mon - Fri. Patients will always be contacted in the first instance if we are going to call. If you are in any doubt about the identification of anyone claiming to be from the practice you should call the police.
Please pass this message on to as many as possible.
