Patient Group Report 14/15

Patient Group 2014 / 2015

Patient views are paramount to ensure continuous improvement of our services and we will always listen and take into account what patients are telling us. This group is seen as another method that patients can talk to us in addition to over the reception desk, telephone, email, text and feedback via our website.

 Through our effective communication methods the Patient Representative Group gain a better understanding and knowledge of the practice and its' staff, where previously they may have seen an issue, when the dynamics of the practice are explained it can become more understandable to the patient and they are able to see barriers we may encounter. By working with our patients we can often reach a solution.

The Patient Representative Group enables us to consult with patients about arrangements for their primary health care before in-house decisions are made.

 Our practice can plan services jointly with patients and this enables us to get closer to the community for whom we care.

Local and national areas were also addressed around online facilities, extended opening hours, Patient access, health campaigns and any other information which was deemed relevant.

The practice uses the TV screens within the centre and newsletters to convey information.

The CQC whilst visiting reviewed the Patient Representative Group documentation and work done and were happy with the information seen.

The practice is very keen in engaging patients to help deliver and design services around the needs of its' patients. The Practice was keen to ensure that before it sought the views of its' patients on the priority areas, that the group understood its roles and responsibilities and why as a group they are integral to all we do.

The PRG were keen to look at the key issues mainly those that were used within the National Patient Survey and look at issues regarding their patient experience with regards to appointments, telephone access, seeing a GP of their choice. The Practice had also used feedback, comments and suggestions by patients to help inform some of the priority areas.

The practice has a comments box in reception so anonymous comments can be left if so desired.

Action Plan 2014 / 15

The PRG have identified the following priorities:

 The practice agrees to- 'You Said - We Did'

  • Introduce a Text Messaging Service - We Did
  • Reduce Did Not Attends - We Did

Introduce a text messaging service - When booking an appointment patients will receive a text confirmation, 24 hours before their appointment the patient will receive an appointment reminder, 2 hours following their appointment the patient will be sent a Friends & Family question to feedback regarding the service they received.

Reception staff are given a print out each morning of patients who the text messaging service has been unable to deliver the message to, the receptionist will then update the patient details when they arrive at reception for their appointment.

  • Lack of car parking - We Did
  • ?

Unfortunately the practice is unable to change this, however in addition to the car park, further parking is available on the surrounding roads. The Practice Manager will feed the patients' concerns back at the next building meeting.

  • Music in the waiting room - We Did

Due to licensing laws we cannot accomodate this request, however in addition to practice information advertised on the screens in the waiting room there are health related short stories for patients to watch whilst they wait to be seen.

  • Advertise Services - We Did
  • ?

The Practice waiting room information screen is kept updated, the patient group have suggested doing a 6 monthly email which is currently being looked into as well as a quarterly newsletter.

  • Improve telephone access - We Did
  • ?

A mobile telephone is now used for receptionists to carry out any 'back office' administration thus freeing up the practice telephone lines. Admin phone is now answered at busy periods, giving the practice three incoming lines instead of two.
