Q: Why do I need to give my contact details for either of the patient groups?
A: We would like to be able to contact people occasionally to ask them questions about the surgery and how well we are doing to identify areas for improvement.
Q: Will my doctor see this information?
A: This information is purely to contact patients to ask them questions about the surgery, how well we are doing and ensure changes that are being made are patient focused. If your doctor is responsible for making some of the changes in the surgery they might see general feedback from patients.
Q: Will the questions you ask me be medical or personal?
A: We will only ask general questions about the practice, such as short questionnaires.
Q: Who else will be able to access my contact details?
A: Your contact details will be kept safely and securely and will only be used for this purpose and will not be shared with anyone else.
Q: How often will you contact me?
A: Not very often……maybe once every three to four months.
Q: What is a patient group?
A: This is a group of volunteer patients who are involved in making sure the surgery provides the services its patients need.
Q: Do I have to leave my contact details?
A: No, only if you are interested in joining, but if you change your mind, please let us know.
Q: What if I no longer wish to be on the contact list or I leave the surgery?
A: We ask you to let us know by email if you do not wish to receive further messages.
