  1. Review titled Scared for my health

    Rated 1 star out of 5

    by Anonymous - Posted on 30 April 2024

    I have been unwell for some time and still trying to get to the bottom of what is wrong with me, I have been asking for a Doctors appointment for weeks as my symptoms are getting worse and new symptoms are emerging I am genuinely scared, I need a follow up to discuss recent tests and findings with a Clinician I am familiar with so I don’t have to go through everything again as there is not enough time, I called and asked for an appointment several times and wasn’t given one I tried to submit and online form and they were turned off, I have been at the Surgery for sixteen years and it is getting worse and seriously concerning.

  2. Review titled Superb

    Rated 5 stars out of 5

    by Anonymous - Posted on 06 March 2024

    My wife had a problem this week [Mon], and there were further problems today [wed]. I can truthfully say that the front office were [superb] on both occasions. Follow up by the doctor on Monday [5*] and today the Doctor made my wife so relaxed again [5*]. Issues are still ongoing but over these 3 days the practice has been superb. Well done ! PS - Trustpilot 5*

    by awful, rude receptionists - Posted on 27 February 2024

    had emergency appt (phoned at 8am) they sent me to a pharmacy at 11am. he then sent me straight to the gp… i was then told i would have to wait nearly 3 hours!… only by seeing an actual doctor walking past did i only wait 30 mins… they are rude, no empathy, condescending and patronising… the gp apologised and recommended that i make a formal complaint

    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, unfortunately the reception team are not in control of appointments. You arrived into the surgery at lunch time, after morning clinic had finished, afternoon clinic does not start until 15.30, you were seen by a Physician Associate, in their lunch break, they apologised for the Pharmacy First referral not being suitable.

  4. Review titled I feel I’m wasting doctors time yet again

    Rated 2 stars out of 5

    by Anonymous - Posted on 25 January 2024

    I was requesting my pain medication for the week ahead this week due to the death of my uncle of whom I’m next of kin , after 11 of being with the surgery I have never been told to sue this before . I’m now told I have to have an appointment with a dr before I’m able to do this which with the lack of appointments the surgery are able to offer I feel it’s a waste of an appointment that someone else could have, lots of recent changes to the whole practice I don’t think have been made for the better unfortunately due to being disabled and not being always able to get down to the surgery I’m now unable to speak to the pharmacy or even the receptionist which I think is awful and never heard of

  5. Review titled Excellent service

    Rated 5 stars out of 5

    by Georgette Clements - Posted on 20 December 2023

    I rang the surgery approximately 1.00pm and told the very helpful receptionist that I would like an appointment. She enquired what my problem was concerning and I was told the dr would ring me back . Shortly afterwards the receptionist rang to say the dr would see me at 2.30. On arriving I was seen virtually straight away. The service I received was in a friendly, sympathetic and professional manner. No complaints at all. Great service.

    My late father was always full of praise for the kindness and care shown to him over many years by everyone at both Felsted and Great Dunmow surgeries.

  7. Review titled Caring doctors and staff

    Rated 5 stars out of 5

    by Sue - Posted on 06 November 2023

    Because of my job I find it difficult to wait on the phone using the queuing system so I have started to use the online link to contact the surgery. My email was acknowledged with a text message then followed by a call from a doctor at my preferred time. The doctor listened to my concerns and arranged for blood tests and I used the same online system to ask for a follow up appointment which I have now had and results and options discussed including using outside agencies deemed helpful. I have always found the doctors and the staff helpful and caring. They have a difficult job especially with Great Dunmow expanding as it is and I would like to thank them for all they have done for me and my family.

    I have been with this practice for over 20 years and have been very satisfied there services, but sad to say it has gone downhill! having no end of problems with repeat prescriptions, long waits on the call back service over 2hrs. being sent a reminder to go and have a repeat chest x-ray after travelling to the hospital pay parking fee get to the x-ray department and being told that the doctor has not sent the request. Not happy.

  9. Review titled Really gone downhill

    Rated 1 star out of 5

    by Anonymous - Posted on 06 November 2023

    I have previously always had a good experience with the surgery but in the last few months it has really gone down hill. I attended for an appointment, checked in and was sitting there for an hour. I know they run late so just assumed they were, I went up to reception and it turns out the doctor I was meant to see wasn't even in today! Surely they would have known that when I checked in! I've been waiting 2 months now for a letter to have a scan. I also put in a request online 2 weeks ago for my son, they asked for a photo of the issue which I sent as soon as I got the text, yet I am still awaiting a response for the doctor! I've been in twice to have my address updated both myself and my husband and it's still set as my old address

  10. Review titled Phone wait times

    Rated 2 stars out of 5

    by bill rice - Posted on 25 August 2023

    To add to the comments about the phone waiting times there is also an annoying error with the phone message. It states '..or use the call-back service..' However it doesn't explain how this is invoked and there appears to be no info that I could find on the website. A call back would be much less frustrating than being brain-washed with the hold tones for an hour.
