We now provide a small number of appointments especially for young people (13-19yrs) so they can either talk to or see a clinician to discuss any problems. Contact the surgery to ask when these appointments are available every week. 

Care Quality Commission Inspection

The Friarwood Surgery was inspected by a CQC Team on Thursday 24th September 2015, we  received positive feedback from the inspection team on the day which has lead to our official report being published.

The good news is that we were awarded a rating of OUTSTANDING which is a wonderful achievement for all of our hard working and caring staff. This result puts your GP surgery in the top 4% best rated in England. 

The surgery would like to thank the members of the Patient Participation Group for their positive engagement on the day of the inspection and for their ongoing support to help drive us forward on behalf of all of our patients.

Network Development Framework (NDF) 

We will be providing additional same day appointments from April 2014.

Funding has been provided by the Clinincal Commissioning Group (CCG) to enable the recruitment of additional staff to improve access and cut down the number of patients accessing A&E inappropriately during surgery hours (please read our 'alternatives to A/E' section). The Scheme commences in April for a 12 month duration. Our Practice has applied to recruit 1 GP locums and 1 ANP locum, this application has been accepted.

We will have 2 GP additional sessions per week (Monday Am & Pm) which equates to 60 extra appointments from April 14 until the end of March 15. We will also be enhancing the Clincal Call-Back scheme by using a team of advanced nurse practitioners to provide more capacity to deal with on the day patient demand.

These additional appointments will only be available to book on the day and will compliment our normal services.

As part of the scheme, our GP's and nursing team will be providing Care Management Plans to those patients with Long Term Conditions (COPD, Stroke & Epilepsy ) Patients attending will be invited to the Practice or by phone to discuss their own personal Care Plan to assist them in managing their condition.
