Monday to Friday 8.00am - 6.30pm
We ask our patients to refrain from calling the surgery on weekdays between 8.00 and 9.00am unless their need is urgent. This is so that the telephone lines remain free for those patients trying to get through to request urgent appointments.
On Mondays the lines are particularly busy, so it would be helpful if routine calls, messages etc could wait until later in the week.

Local Patient Participation Report
2012/13 Patient Survey Results
The survey was conducted during February/March 2013. A total of 175 questionnaires were given out to patients by the staff at both Chester Rd & Seymour Grove and a total of 129 questionnaires were completed and handed back. A copy of the survey questionnaire was also put on the Practice website asking patients to participate.
Patients were asked a total of 21 questions with regards to the practice. The survey was kept as simple as possible to help achieve a more honest and accurate opinion.
The analysis of the local patient survey pinpointed those areas where improvements might be needed. These areas will form the agenda for the Patient Participation Group meeting held to discuss to the results and agree an action plan for setting out priorities and proposals for implementing changes.
