Positive Feedback

If you've had a particularly positive experience with the surgery, please do let our team know! We’re all here to try to support our patients, and it makes our day to know that we've helped you.

There are lots of ways you can let us know if you’ve had a good experience with us. You can tell any member of the team in person or over the phone, you can use the form below, or send an email to the surgery or our Patient Care Manager.

You can also leave a review on our Google Maps page, or through NHS Find a GP. Leaving us a positive review on these platforms helps other patients to find us and gives them the chance to have a good experience with us too!

Patient Participation Group

You can also give us feedback through our Patient Participation Group (PPG). The PPG is made up of practice staff and patients who meet regularly to talk about our services and how they can be improved. Joining our PPG gives you the opportunity to be more responsible for your own health, have your say about your surgery and get to know the staff better!

Get in touch with our reception team to find out more about how to get involved.

NHS Friends and Family Test

The NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT) is another way that you can give us feedback. The FFT was created to help service providers and commissioners understand if their patients are happy with the service provided, and where improvements are needed. It’s a single question survey that asks you how likely you are to recommend the service to your friends and family. It’s a quick and anonymous way to give your views after receiving care or treatment across the NHS.

After you have attended an appointment at the practice, we might ask you to complete the FFT. Alternatively, we could contact you about it later via post, text message or phone call. You can also pick up the test from reception. For guidance on how to complete the FFT, click here or watch this video. All data collected is submitted to NHS England.

If you have any queries about the FFT, you can email:

Making a complaint

If you're not happy with your treatment, or any other matter connected to your care, you can make a complaint or a suggestion to improve services for everyone.

Often the quickest way of resolving a concern is by raising it directly with a member of staff or the reception team as soon as you can. They will attempt to deal with the matter as quickly as possible.

You can also contact our dedicated Patient Experience Manager to discuss your concerns. The easiest way to get in touch with them is to fil in the form below, but you can also email, phone or send a letter. You should make your complaint within 12 months of the incident or within 12 months of the matter coming to your attention.

Our Patient Experience Manager will acknowledge your complaint within three working days and discuss with you the way in which you would like your complaint resolved and set out the length of time this will take. Your care will not be affected as a result of making a complaint.

We will look into your complaint to:

  • Find out what happened and what went wrong
  • Invite you to discuss the problem so that we can prevent this from happening again
