March 25, 201314 Patient comments The Good I moved to the Blundellsands surgery in the last 2 years or so and the difference from my old practice is remarkable - the waiting time is a lot shorter. Lovely friendly kind staff on reception - who are very helpful. The waiting room is enviting and the overall standard that I have recieved from my doctors as been very high. I cannot see myself ever moving away from this practice, so much so, i'm trying to get my fiance to move from his GP to Blundellsands surgery due to the lack of care and welcoming doctors in his. I find the service at the Surgery excellent and would recommend practice to others. Listening to stories of how difficult friends and family can find it getting an appointment with their Doctors I cannot fault my surgery. I have never been refused an emergency appointment for myself or my husband. The staff are always bery helpful and the level of care by the Doctors is 2nd to none. We feel very lucky to have such a great surgery. Keep up the good work.
March 25, 201315 Patient comments The bad Over the years I have tried to make routine appointments for both myself and my family but find that sometimes Reception seem to prefer that you go to the Walk-In Centres instead of trying to make an appointment at the Doctors The reception staff are very poor and can only described as job worth. I understand there is pressure from other people in the practice but they MUST learn to listen to concerns and find a solution The Dr was running late for my last two morning appts - 20mins & 25mins. Whilst I appreciate an appt time is not "fixed", an overrun of 15+ mins is unacceptable.
March 25, 201316 Patient comments The mixed It is ideal to be able to order prescriptions online could an online appointment system be set up to save time waiting on the phone? I feel sometimes the reception staff can come across as very abrupt, you can also be made to feel as though you are putting them out rather than them being there to provide a very important service. I feel that sometimes this detracts from the excellent service provided by the extremely conscientious doctors. Generally pleased with care received. However it would help to be able to see the same GP to discuss the same problem. This would improve continuity
