Comments and Complaints


We strive to provide the highest level of care for all our patients and are constantly trying to improve the service we offer.

We are always willing to listen and welcome feedback from patients. Please let us know if you think we have done something well or if you have any suggestions as to how we can do something better.

If you would like to give feedback on the surgery or a doctor, please consider visiting the website below to leave a review.

Alternatively, the NHS Friends and Family Test asks the question "how likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?". You can click on the link to the right and answer the question via this website.
