Our Performance (Latest National GP Survey 2013)

west green surgery performance patient experience

The latest up-to-date national (MORI) GP patient survey for between March 2013 and September 2013 results have been released. 

Below is a snap shot of what our patients have said. Of note more than 88% felt confidence in their doctor as well as the fact they were listened to and had their treatment and investigations explained to them. 

It is showed that the surgery has listened to what our patients have said since the 2010 poll and worked towards improving our care for our patients. Within the last year we have recruited more doctors and now have a number of appointments available for our patients.

The surgery has made large improvements over the last few years and now we are working hard to maintaining an excellent level of service to all patients. Our current GP MORI polls have reflected such change.

Whilst we may not be able to tackle all your concerns every single time, we appreciate that as patients you are often very busy and have often more than 1 medical complaint. Where possible the doctors will try and attempt to address all of your issues in one consultation. Because of this there may be a short delay or wait in seeing you compared to your appointment time. 

We hope to continue the good work at the surgery. We routinely offer feedback forms and questionnaires at the surgery to allow us assess and reflect on any comments or recommendations you have. We are constantly listening and strive to improve our service provision.
