Have you tried our virtual doctor?

Dr Matthew Piccaver may be able to answer some of your questions about coughs, colds, sore throats and the flu. That way, you can manage your symptoms more effectively and can understand when you should book an appointment with your GP.

It is available on your mobile, on your tablet or on your PC so wherever you are when you have a question, that question can be answered.

Ask Dr Matt a question via the website VirtTuri; you'll be surprised by just how much he knows.

Friends and Family

The Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service.

It is one simple question:

"How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?"

Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience - what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you're helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.

It is completely anonymous. Please collect a form from your Doctor or Reception. 

Please see the following video for more information.

 

Non Attendance
