1 Cotswold Medical Practice Patient Survey Results 2014

2 Methodology Due to the excellent response last year, we used electronic technology again this year. The link to the survey was sent to 800 patients by email, approximately 5,000 were sent a text inviting them to complete the survey on the practice website, and 200 paper copies were distributed in the surgery. Invitations were added to repeat prescriptions. 485 patients completed the survey

14 Feedback from the Patient Participation Group The vast majority of patients seem very happy with the service – well done. Please add an explanation about Nurse appointment booking on-line and repeat prescriptions to your web-site Whilst appointments running late can be annoying, I understand that different problems require different lengths of time and 10 minutes is the average. I know that if I need longer on occasion, I will get it Please can reception let patients know if GPs or nurses are running late. The practice is clearly struggling to cope with increasing demand

15 Cotswold Medical Practice Patient Survey 2014 Patients asked forOur response We would like to book nurse appointments on-line All our nurses have different specialities and training, which makes it difficult to offer on-line booking. We will be upgrading our computer system in July and will revisit this when it is fully functional. However, we will try to add flu appointments in September/October this year. We would like to order 2 or more months of prescriptions at once We are required by NHS England to only issue one month at a time. This is to avoid clinical errors and wastage. However, you can order your medication for the following month when you collect your tablets from the surgery or the chemist. You can also request to have “repeat dispensing” where 6 months of prescriptions are issued so that you do not need to request them monthly. You still need to collect the medication monthly from the practice or the chemist. Internet booking of appointments and ordering medication This is a very popular service. Unfortunately, after 10pm and at some points over the weekend, the computer is performing essential tasks and cannot be accessed to book appointments or order prescriptions. If this happens, please try again later. If you would like to use this service please ask at reception for log in details and password. Late evening or Saturday appointments We offer evening appointments until 20:30 with GPs and Nurses on alternate Mondays (Bourton) and Wednesdays (Northleach). Please ask at reception to book. Frustration with NHS111 service If you phone us when the surgery is closed, your call is automatically transferred to NHS111. Their trained operators will assess your problem and direct you to the appropriate service – Pharmacy, Out of Hours GP, Minor Injuries unit or A+E. In order to do this effectively they will ask a lot of questions to exclude a serious problem. Please bear with them – the survey demonstrates that people are generally happy with the service they are directly to. Minor Injuries service at the surgery Patients are very happy with the service at our local Minor Injuries Units. Some would prefer to be seen in the Practice. We have not been commissioned to treat minor injuries, and therefore our nurses do not have the appropriate training, nor do we have the facilities to do so. All our nurse clinics are generally fully booked and we do not have a walk-in facility. Patients are much safer being seen by experts who have access to the equipment they need to treat minor injuries. The Practice could make more use of texting and email We have the facility to send a text reminder for appointments, and other reminders for blood tests etc. Please give reception your mobile number if you would like this. We are making more use of email for contacting patients. This will continue to grow over the forthcoming years. Please let us have your email address if you are happy for us to email you.
