Topcliffe Surgery Annual Patient Survey 2015-16
Thanks to all those who took part in our annual patient survey this year. We had 103 responses to our questionnaire. The results were extremely pleasing, and suggest year-on-year improvement in all areas of performance. The additional comments made by patients were overwhelmingly positive and congratulatory. If you would like to view the detailed results of the survey please click on the link below:
The feedback will be reviewed in more detail at our Patient Reference Group meeting later in the year and we will be looking at any ways in which we can continue to improve our service further.
Named Accountable GP
All GP Practices are now required to provide their patients with a 'named, accountable GP'.
The named accountable GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of appropriate services required under the practice's NHS contract and ensures that they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP).
All of our patients, including children, now have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care.
Please note that this does NOT prevent you from seeing any GP of your choice in the practice as you currently do now, and you will not see any change in the way care is delivered to you by us.
Dr Farrell will be leaving the surgery on 31 August 2016. We would like to thank him for his support during his time with us and wish him well.
Dr Caspar Wood will be joining the surgery on 1 September 2016. We are delighted that he will be joining us.
