Smallbrook Surgery Patient Survey Results 2014
Many thanks to all of our patients who took part in this valuable excercise. In particular I would like to thank all the members of the Patient Reference Group who were able to offer me their vital feedback on the survey results and what we might do with this information. Please see the links to the documents below which offer a view of all the results of the surveys and my planned actions in response to them. If you have any queries relating to this survey please feel free to contact me at the Surgery.

Join us in the Wiltshire Big Pledge!
As a GP surgery I think it’s important, where possible, to lead by example in matters relating to Health. All staff at Smallbrook surgery are therefore going to be giving up the biscuits and cakes and will replace these with fruit and vegetables. I can assure this will hit me as hard as any – everyone here knows that I do enjoy my cakes! Why not join us and see how your health improves? We are asking all our patients to join us and sign-up in the Waiting room. We will also be providing all children who attend the surgery with a peice of fruit (subject to their parent or guardians approval). We have been able to do this with the generous assistance of Waitrose and Morrisons who have donated vouchers to enable us to buy fruit for visiting youngsters.

Smallbrook surgery has a very high demand for all our clinician’s appointments so it is vitally important that we make the best use of all the available time. The appointments where patients fail to turn-up (otherwise known as Did Not Attend or DNA) are a significant waste of our resources and directly impacts on our ability to offer appointments to our patients within a timescale that is acceptable. I would ask all our patients to advise us if you wish to cancel your appointment and this will then allow us to offer that appointment to other patients.
