INTRODUCING OUR NEW SERVICE FOR CANCELLING APPOINTMENTS

 

We realise it can be difficult to get through on the telephone especially first thing in the morning. It can be time consuming trying to call so now we have a mobile number for you to text if you are unable to attend your appointment.

All you need to do is text leaving your name/d.o.b and the date & time of the appointment you wish to cancel. This will help to reduce the number of wasted appointments. 

Please make a note of the number:-

07404 324649

Please ensure we have your up to date mobile number. Please speak to reception if it needs updating.

**Please note: - this mobile number only accepts text messages to cancel appointments; it does not accept incoming calls and other requests.

Our Patient Reference Group

Patient representation plays a crucial part in helping the practice identify what it can do better and what is important to patients. For the past few years the range of health services available to patients has expanded dramatically and this has resulted in a greater demand for GP and Nursing time both in person and over the telephone. This has led to many competing demands on our limited time and as a result is making it harder to provide a first class service.

Working together with the PRG we hope to improve local awareness about services, the appointment system and the functioning of the practice which we hope will then bring benefits to our patients.

Our meetings take place every three months. 

 

To read minutes from our previous meetings please click on the Patient Participation tab on this website.  

If you would like to join the group or discuss further, please contact the Practice.

 

Next PRG Meeting to be held on Friday 5th October at 13:30 at Groby Road Medical Centre
