.I have been a patient at this surgery for over thirty years. I have a life long disability and due to decreasing mobility and quite complex health needs am now confined to a wheelchair, having to be hoisted in and out. That said I don't need the Dr's that often and do visit surgery when I possibly can if I need attention. I also have hearing difficulties particularily on the phone and the surgery have been provided with alternative means of contacting me if I can't hear. They are also aware of my mobility issues. I live alone with the support of carers who visit four times a day for brief periods of time. Yesterday a Carer contacted the Ambulance Service on my behalf as I needed quite urgent medical assistance, who subsequently contacted the Surgery to ask them to send a Community Nurse out as soon as possible. I was phoned by the Dr (who should have phoned the carer), the carer and I explained the situation and the reply from the Dr to quote was 'I'm not being awkward, but if you can't get to Surgery there's nothing I can do' and put the phone down. Sadly that attitude seems to be the norm these days rather than the exception

Having many different health issues. It's hard to get them addressed it more than one part of my conditions flair up at the same time. I find now that m a commodity and not a person- even feel like a burden to the practice and intimidated and scared to ask for help. I have seen some very nice Good GPS but some should re read their oaths.this saddens me as it spoils what used to be an excellent practice.

with a ever increasing population around cross gates its getting harder and harder to get an appointment in the surgery, some times weeks ,, not the doctors or staffs fault i might add but very frustrating ,, i had a very bad accident with my leg and after leaving hospital care found it hard to get in but always gave me a ring back and got in straight away , the doctors just told me to ring and if i couldnt get in just ask for a ring back about my leg and if i had any concerns ,

I have been a patient of this practice for years and have never had a problem with them.Yes I have two favourite doctors but 99.9% of the doctors I have seen over the years have been excellent.Making an appointment to see your 'favourite doctor' can mean a wait but by us having a favourite is making it a problem.If I am ill and I feel it is urgent I will see any doctor who happens to be available at any time I am given.The reception staff are great, they are friendly and try their best to give you the appointment you need. They can only give you what is available on their screens they are not magicians.Taking everything into consideration I cannot give this surgery any less than 10 out of 10.

See a doctor in 21 days time or ring back when it becomes An emergency, that's what I was told. Totally unacceptable.

With pain, high temperature and swollen I did not receive any help at reception except call for an ambulance offer. Next day I was there again, this time I was sent straight to the hospital with possible sepsa diagnosis. It was my GP practice for years, and there were a few excellent doctors but after that I felt completely lost and abandoned.

I have tried to call and order a repeat prescription but was told that this could no be done over the phone, this had to be either done through the pharmacy, in person ( I work and do no get home in time to call at the surgery ) , email, fax or letter. When I asked why I was just told that it is procedure now. Not being accommodating to working people. I have recently moved pharmacy due to the one I have left never getting my prescription correct, the other pharmacy will not order my repeats until they have had one of the prescription from the doctors. This doctors is getting worse, the staff talk down to you and have no empathy at all. Seriously considering moving.

The staff here try hard to provide a good service despite the relentless pressures everyone in the NHS face. There are electronic means to request prescriptions and appointments so if you're working then use these options!

This used to be a great GP Surgery, is it so difficult to get an appointment now, I went into the surgery the other day and the next pre-bookable appointment was in the next 3 weeks! Just absolutely disgusting.

Being told a couple of weeks in a row that there are no appointments at all is terrible. I was told to ring for cancellations, but working full time means that I can't continually ring for cancellations or answer a call at any time! I'm not sure why the doctors are currently so booked up, but being open for longer hours, including weekends for those who work full time, and answering the phone when people need to call as they are on lunch would be helpful! Booking weeks ahead is also not helpful when you're actually ill, it'll be sending more people to A and E when they don't need to be there! It's hardly asking much to be able to make an appointment for a service we pay taxes for, especially for those like myself who don't make appointments much.
