Complaints, comments and suggestions

We will always be willling to hear if there is any way you think that we can improve our service.  Please find details n the right hand side of this website. 

Non attendance

 All non attendances are carefully recorded.

We often hear from patients that they aren’t able to get an appointment when it suits them. But the lack of appointments is very closely linked to patients who fail to turn up.

Throughout January 2018 117 Doctors appointments and 77 Nurse appointments were missed across both Beggarwood and Rooksdown sites.

We understand that sometimes people have to cancel appointments, but we’re just asking that people let us know. If they do cancel, even at short notice, we are nearly always able to fill that appointment.

Test results

Please contact the surgery to get the results of any test that you have had done between 2.00pm and 5pm.

Routine blood, urine and swab results usually take around 3-5 working days to be processed and reported.   If you need a  test done please ensure your appoinment is before 3pm, otherwise your sample will not be collected until the following day.

The results for X-rays and ultrasounds take 7 days and cervical smears take 8-10 weeks.
