Dear Patient,

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this, we have set up a patient representation group so that you can have your say.  We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you receive.  We will contact you via email or in the post and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn't take too much of your time. 

We aim to gather patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a  truly representative sample. 

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally, please download the sign up form as a pdf document, print it out, complete it and return it to us. 

 Download the pdf version of our sign up form

We will be in touch shortly after we receive your form. 

Many thanks for your time and assistance. 

Patient Participation Results                       

Since May 2011 we have been developing a Patient Reference Group.  We produce an annual report with an action plan that also details what we have improved following your suggestions.  Please see below for the results.
