NOTICE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS
If you have been in contact with a confirmed case of Coronavirus, or have returned from China (incl. Hong-Kong), Japan, Malaysia, Rep Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, in the last 14 days and feel unwell, please call NHS111 for advice. Do NOT attend or call the surgery, as we are unable to give advice or arrange necessary tests. Thank you.
Increase in access to appointments with your GP
In order to improve access to appointments and to manage the problems we are having with the phone system, we have now made some appointments available to book up to four weeks in advance. We are also holding some of the afternoon appointments and releasing them at 12pm each day, rather than releasing all the appointments in one go at 8.20am. This also applies to advance booking appointments and internet bookable appointments.
We hope this will help reduce the waiting times for calls to be answered in the mornings and reduce the occasions when the phone system ‘drops’ callers out of the queue before they get through to the practice.
Our new telephone system is due to be installed in May this year.
Thank you for your patience whilst these changes are being introduced.

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 are setting up a virtual 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 received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.

BHC Latest Report March 2014
Looking at the above data, (compiled from the responses from the patient members who participated in our survey), we have made the following observations and suggested them as a starting point for actions for the coming year. These initial findings were discussed with a small focus group at the practice in the first instance and also emailed out to the wider patient group. They were also put on the PRG noticeboard in the waiting area for people to see and comment on.
Patients were in agreement about our action plan and very positive feedback was received.
