1-Staff needs training and they have to be more proactive and communicative with patients while they are waiting to be seen by the doctor. PM is arranging it

2-If the doctor is running late staff should inform to the new arrivals

3- We have created 6 new same day urgent appt slots for patients who call us between 8-8:30am – if patients miss this telephone booking slot the patient can still call in personally as an emergency but may have to wait to be seen.

The Patient Survey has given the practice a good idea of how Patients consider it to be performing in 4 key areas:


Clinical care


Surgery premises.

The Practice and the PPG have been happy with the level of responses from the number questionnaires given out and has provided the practice with a benchmark for future improvement.

Access improvement? To be measured via 2nd Survey.


  • Members suggested that patient education can play a vital role to solve the access issue, Doctors can educate patients during their consultations

Doctors to educate Patients during consultations

Access improvement? To be measured via 2nd Survey.


  • 2nd (follow up) Survey to be proposed for this coming year 2017

Practice staff member to draw up proposal for 2nd Survey to be fed back to PPG at next meeting.

A 2nd Patient Survey will:

  1. Demonstrate progress or non-progress made from the previous year on the Survey areas questioned.

  2. Demonstrate commitment of continued Patient involvement and feedback from our Surgery’s services and facilities.

  3. Provide (together with the previous survey’s results) a marker for improvement which the Practice and PPG can discuss and input with observations and suggestions as to possible improvement strategies.

The NHS’s ambition is to embrace technology as part of its drive to offer modern, convenient and responsive services to patients, their families and carers. Patient Online is an NHS England programme designed to support GP practices to offer and promote online services to patients, including access to coded information in records, appointment booking and ordering of repeat prescriptions.


GP practices already offer online services, including appointment booking, ordering of repeat prescription, and access to summary information in records. GP practices will increasingly expand online services over the next year to include coded information on medication, allergies, illnesses, immunisations and test results. Online services will be offered in addition to the traditional telephone and face-to-face means of interacting with a GP practice.
