ANALYSIS OF 'DETRACTOR' RESPONSES RECEIVED JAN - DEC 2016

The practice team routinely reviews all responses from patients who are not likely or extremely likely to recommend our services to their family and friends.  This ensures that we review any areas of concern and recognise any trends in negative feedback results which helps our team identify areas for potential improvement in our service delivery.

AGREED ACTIONS IN RESPONSE TO NEGATIVE FAMILY & FRIENDS FEEDBACK 2016

You said, we listened, we did ......

Overall there are no obvious areas for concern.  Responses from defractors remained a relatively low percentage of the total opinions expressed, at 14% of the overall feedback received this year.

Although small numbers, the most significant area of concern for patients continues to be the 'ease of accessing our services'.  In year, the practice has strengthened the clinical resource within our ACUTE CARE TEAM service to offer more appointments to patients needing to see a clinician the same day.  A working group was established to commence a review into our service provision for patients with long term conditions, to help improve the efficiency of the service that we provide for ongoing routine care and nurse appointment availability. The former GP vacancies within the practice team have now been successfully filled which has also helped with appointment availability.

The NHS continues to be under considerable pressure to meet growing demand for its services and we routinely look for ways to successfully and safely meet this challenge.

However, the shortage of doctors training to be GPs nationally is of growing concern to the practice team and every effort is being made to recruit permanent clinicians to the local healthcare team.
