Our Friends and Family Test Results


MAY  2022  

We have now restarted our Friends & Family Questionnaire please feel free to complete the feedback form if you attend the surgery

NHS England have introduced the Friends and Family Test (FFT) as a feedback tool to support the principle that people who use NHS services should have an opportunity to provide feedback on their experience. It asks people if they would recommend the services they have used and, combined with a follow-up question, the FFT should provide a mechanism to highlight both good and poor patient experience. NHS England states that this kind of feedback is vital in transforming NHS services and supporting patient choice.

Thank you to all of those who have provided feedback. So far we received the following responses to our questions:

"Thinking about your recent appointment/contact with the Practice, overall how was your experience of our service?"

Very Good




Neither Good or Poor




Very poor


Don't know


Please can you tell us why you gave your answer?

  • Sadly you can never get through on the phone.  You always end up having to come to the intercom: Reply from the surgery - As we offer telephone triage appointments the phones lines are very busy and we endeavour to answer the phone as quickly as possible. we are very sorry that you were unable to get through.
  • From the 1st phone contact I was dealt with very quickly
  • I needed to see a doctor strait away as it was very important and serious. If it is urgent to see a doctor you should be seen the same day:
  • Reply from the surgery - We still have on the day urgent appointments that patient will be booked into if the clinician who triages your call thinks it is necessary.
  • I am always satisfied
