Complaints and Feedback

We do our best to give the highest level of care to all our patients. This includes the service they get from both the Clinical and Administrative teams. We value any feedback on how we're doing.

We take complaints seriously. We investigate and act on them to keep our standards high and prevent future mistakes. We respond to complaints quickly, following NHS guidelines.

Family & Friends Test

The NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT) is a tool we use to collect feedback. It helps us to understand whether you are happy with the service provided. It also helps us learn where improvements are needed. It's a quick and anonymous way to give your views after receiving NHS care or treatment.

We collect FFT feedback via text messages. You may receive a text message for feedback after you have been to an appointment at the surgery.
