Practice Feedback

As a practice, we always want to improve, and we can only do this by collecting the views and opinions of our patients and their carers. Both positive and negative feedback are important to us because they help us enhance our service quality and transparency. We encourage all of our patients to provide feedback after they have made any form of contact with us, be it via the telephone, at reception, via SMS, or during a consultation.

We collect feedback in various ways and these are as follows:

NHS Choices

NHS Choices is the UK’s largest health website, providing comprehensive information on health conditions, treatments, and services. It empowers patients to make informed decisions about their health and care.

One of its key features is the ability for patients to leave feedback about their experiences with NHS services. By visiting the NHS website, patients can search for their local health providers, such as GP practices or hospitals, and leave reviews based on their personal experiences.

This feedback is invaluable as it helps to improve service quality, enhances transparency, and aids other patients in making informed choices about their care.
