Patient Satisfaction Survey

Recently, we needed to change our appointment system to fulfill the new contract imposed by NHS England and the government. Every contact with the surgery needs to have an outcome, which means a patient should receive an assessment of need, an appointment, or be signposted to a more appropriate service at the end of the contact. The assessment of need requires the patient to provide details of the reason for their call to allow clinician to assess the need. As there has now been yet another change at the practice, we wish to see how these changes affect our patient’s satisfaction with the services provided.

Patient Satisfaction Survey April 2023
At Grimethorpe Surgery we aim to provide the best possible care to our patients. To allow us to do this, we require the help of our patients.
Please fill in the below survey to help us in improving our services further.
We realise we’ll never reach perfection, but will continue to strive for perfection.
We recently changed our appointment system following government and NHS England guidance.
Thank you for taking the time to fill this survey.
