Hot off the press!
We are really proud to have had another fantastic patient survey.
Especially as in our "Where patient experience could improve" section there is a comment that "This practice has scored higher than their CCG average in every question" When asked if they would describe their overall experience of our Practice as "good" 98% of patients said "yes".
We are hugely pleased to be the highest scoring Practice in Exeter, and far above the national average for Practices which is 83%.
Back Pain? Joints playing up? Arthritis flare up?
From the start of August we are taking part in a pilot project to give people faster access to diagnosis and treatment without needing to see your GP. If you are suffering with pain in your joints, neck or spine or have a soft tissue injury or muscle problem or are struggling to manage your arthritis, you can book an appointment with a specialist physiotherapist instead of asking for a GP referral for treatment. If this is of interest, please discuss with our receptionist when you request to book an appointment.
Change to opening times
From the start of July 2019 we will be offering early morning appointments 3 days a week. There will be appointments available between 7am-8am with the GP's and the Practice Nurse Team. Please speak to one of the receptionists if you would like to book an early appointment, they are also able to be booked online if you prefer.
The phone lines will not be changing so you won't be able to contact us by phone until 8.30am.
