Following our CQC Inspection in January 2016, we have been rated as Good overall and as Outstanding in the area of responsiveness to patients needs.
As most parishioners are aware, the access to the Great Witley Surgery is quite tight and at school pick up times there is a particular problem with the sheer volume of traffic and insufficient parking spaces.
Clearly, the village hall car park is used for school access and there is a real problem with overflow at the peak times. If our entrance is blocked or part blocked, there is a concern that on the albeit infrequent occasions emergency vehicles need access, this could cause a problem and a delay which would be, to say the least, unfortunate.
This is the sole reason why we have asked people not to park anywhere other than the marked bays in the car parks. Hopefully, in due course, the car parking problem will be solved and access will be easy for everyone.
Many thanks for your help with this.
Dr S P A Watson
What is the Friends and Family Test?
The NHS want you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so services can continually be reviewed.
How does it work?
This Test is based on one question:
“How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they need similar care or treatment?”
It is really helpful if you provide a reason as to why you gave your answer.
Comments can be provided anonymously and any details you do provide will not be passed on.
What happens to the results?
The results are collated monthly and all responses are reviewed individually to follow up on any comments that may need further attention. The results of the rating will then be published on our website. NHS choices will also be publishing the results for all surgeries.
How can I take part?
Your comments will help us to learn more about what you think of your experience and areas you feel we could improve upon.
