Friends and Family Test


The FFT has been introduced to General Practice to allow patients who use GP services to have the opportunity to feedback on their experience.  It will provide a continuous feedback loop between our patients and the Practice and will be used to improve services.  The FFT is anonymous and has been kept as simple as possible.  The FFT must use standard wording and must include at least one follow-up question.  The results will be published in the Practice and will be forwarded to NHS England monthly.


                                  Help us to improve the services provided to and for you - tell us what you think; take the FFT.

Training & Research

gp_and_bookThe practice has a history as an exceptional training practice with one partner being a trainer with one registrar ( a fully qualified doctor who is training to be GP) in the practice at any one time, although all partners are involved in their educational process. Two of the partners also train medical students.  The practice also participates in medical trials and research.

Registrar

A Registrar is a qualified doctor who is training to become a GP. They have their own room, and consult patients on their own.  The registrar does sometimes video their surgery consultations. The video is only ever viewed by the registrar and their trainer in the surgery and is used for training purposes only. We do ask for patient’s consent to be videoed and they are given the option not to take part.

Medical Students 

The practice is also involved in training fifth year medical students. These are not qualified doctors, but you may be asked to see a medical student before your appointment with a GP. You are under no obligation to agree but it would greatly assist their training if you would do so.

Medical Trials and Research

The practice receives requests from time to time to invite patients to take part in medical trials. This normally involves sending letters to patients who satisfy specified criteria, inviting them to take part in a trial. If you would like more information, or wish to have your details excluded from any future medical trials, please contact our practice manager.

As part of this practice's contribution to medical research, we provide completely anonymised patient level treatment information to certain reputable third party organisations. Individuals cannot be identified from this information. If you would like more information, or wish to have your details excluded from any future medical research, please contact our practice manager.
