RESULTS OF 2020 PATIENT SURVEY

The national patient survey results are out and we are pleased to announce that we have scored really highly in most areas and have improved on the previous year.  Our results are higher than the national and CCG averages in nearly all areas. The survey found that:-

96% of patients find the reception team helpful

95% of patients said they were involved in decisions about their care and treatment

100% said they had trust in the professional they saw or spoke to

98% said their needs were met during their last appointment

If you want to view the full report, go to www.gp-patient.co.uk 

It is a very pleasing result and demonstrates the commitment of all the staff at Friarwood.

Youth Appointments

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.
