Survey Results

During October & November 2013 we conducted the following survey in an effort to be responsive to patient needs and ensure the Practice is providing the highest quality service possible. The information provided will be used to plan future service developments and as feedback to the patient participation group who will assess the information with a view to helping the Practice develop an appropriate action plan.

Further surveys will be conducted in future years. We appreciate your support and feedback and would like to thank all patients who contributed to this survey.
