The NHS Friends and Family Test - NHS Midlands and East want you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering feedback, so we can continually review our service. It is based on one simple question:
"How likely are you to recommend our GP Practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?"
Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience - what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you're helping us to make changed that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.
There are two different ways of you giving us this feedback - either you can come into surgery and complete one of the feedback cards located on the Reception desk or you can complete the feedback form online by clicking here.
Antibiotics Prescribing - If you have an infection that may need antibiotics please note that we will no longer be able to prescribe antibiotics over the phone. You will need to book an appointment to see a Doctor or Nurse. This is to ensure that antibiotics are appropriate for your condition.
Antibiotics may not always be prescribed when you see your Doctor with an infection as you body can usually fight infections on its own and antibiotics may have undesirable side effects. If you have concerns please discuss this with your Doctor.
Have you any experience of local palliative care services? If so, the West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group is keen to gain your opinion and feedback. This could be in the form of a group discussion or a telephone interview. If you are interested in taking part please click here for more information.
