Action Plan
1. People are not aware of the range of services the practice provides.

Plan – We have made a poster for reception. The information already exists in the practice leaflet and can be found on the practice website. The services are also mentioned on the surgery’s envisage tv system.

2. Waiting times to see the Doctor.

Plan – A poster will be displayed in the waiting room advising patients that they can only be seen for one to two problems at a time unless it is of a serious nature and can’t wait.

3. It has been pointed out by the Patient Participation Group that prescriptions do not always go to their designated chemist and stays at the surgery when they have been to the surgery for treatment.

Plan – The surgery will take extra care to make sure prescriptions go to the chemist if it has been requested to do so. We are going live with the electronic prescription service from June 2015 where this problem should be solved.
