Claverley Medical Practice Survey 2011/12 Claverley survey How the survey was carried out Firstly, we made a first draft of a survey using previous models. Secondly, we asked the opinion of our Patient Reference Group to see if the survey was applicable and easy to complete. After taking into account any comments and input from the Group, we then made a final draft of the survey and carried this out during a 3 month period in A total of 160 patients took part in the survey We targeted patients who attended the doctor, practice nurse, during clinics, i.e. flu vaccination clinic, baby clinic, chronic disease clinic, including patients attending the surgery to collect prescriptions etc.

Claverley Medical Practice Survey 2011/12 Practice Feedback/Action Plan- We have taken on board our patients’ feedback and have endeavoured to address some of the problems highlighted as below : PROBLEMS HIGHLIGHTED 1.Difficult for my wife to see the female GP 2.No appointment available within 2 days 3.Have had to wait a long time to have a blood test 4.Early or late appointments would be good 5.Improve the ventilation in the waiting room 6.Do not like the television in the waiting room 7.More than 1 month repeat prescription 8.Speak to the receptionist in private 9.Need a better website Practice Action Plan – immediate solution 1.Action: To increase our female doctor’s sessions to offer more choice. This has now been put into effect and Dr Negrine has more sessions at Claverley surgery. 2.Action: We have made more appointments available bookable “on the day” for patients who are acutely ill. This will be monitored closely for effectiveness and patient feedback. 3.Action: We decided to trial a “walk-in” phlebotomy clinic every Tuesday am at Pattingham to address the waiting time encountered by some patients. The clinic starts at 8.30 am until 11.45, no appointment necessary but we do expect the patient to bring their blood request form with them. Patients cannot be seen for a blood test that the doctor has not approved. This will be monitored and we are happy to have feedback on the “walk-in” clinic experience. 4.We do already have extended surgery on a Friday with early and late appointments. Action - to advertise our extended opening hours more widely so that patients are aware. 5.We have tried to address this in the past with a free-standing air conditioning unit and fans. As the practice carries out more varied clinics we have gotten busier and therefore more patients are in the waiting room. We are happy to open windows etc at patients request. Action plan: to source and price air conditioning. 6.Action: The decision was taken to turn off the TV screen but put in a radio instead as the practice needs some background sound to offset the open nature of the reception. This is to ensure patients confidentiality is respected. 7.No Action: The practice took the decision 2 years ago to issue only 1 month prescriptions. This has cut down wastage of medicines enormously, and fulfils the national prescribing guidelines of 28 day prescribing for best practice. 8.Unfortunately our surgery is very stretched with regard to available space. Action: to have a plan of when rooms are available and it may be that patients may be asked to come back at a different time if they wish to consult more privately with a member of staff. 9.Action: The practice have recently set up a new interactive website where prescriptions can be ordered online and travel questionnaires completed and sent online etc.
Claverley Medical Practice Survey 2011/12 Medium/Long-term Action Plan To look at solutions or recommendations for alleviating parking problem/lack of car parking space To continue to review and monitor appointment system to ensure patients have enough choice and can be seen appropriately. To look at costs for air conditioning again for the waiting room.
