SAMPLE OF COMMENTS RECEIVED: Pleased I could see a doctor same day but feel we are missing open surgery. Not always practical offering Cressage as an alternative Same day appointments often gone by 8.40 am Appointment system is much better than Minor Ailments, especially with young children Difficult to see 2 particular doctors. Staff are very friendly though. Attitude of staff is much better than it used to be. Same day appointments difficult to book, especially if you are not active in the morning. An excellent practice. 3 weeks for an appointment is too long to wait. Other comments received not via survey relate to difficulties for patients who work eg in Shrewsbury and have to be at work for 8.30 am then having to make their way back to MW or Cressage for an appointment later than morning. Difficulties with patients who need appointments outside of working hours
