NATIONAL PATIENT SURVEY - RESULTS

Thank you to our patients who completed the national patient survey for Brannam Medical Centre. We have now received the results and would like to share these with you. Please click here to view the results.

MJOG

We use a messaging system called MJOG which allows us to contact our patients by text and voice message. We have been using this to invite our patients in for their seasonal flu vaccinations, chronic disease recalls and also for appointment reminders.

We would like to make our patients aware that if you receive a voice message starting 'This is a message from Brannam Medical Centre' it is a genuine message from us and please listen to the message all the way through and you will be able to respond.

If you do not wish to receive messages in this way, please contact the reception team.

Your Feedback

You said...We did...

After receiving some feedback regarding having more variety in online appointments we have made some alterations to include more later in the morning.

It is a difficult juggling exercise between the doctors having enough work at the start of the day, not having too much at the end of the day and also providing appointment times that meet our patients needs. 

We have an online forum where we ask the members of this group some questions from time to time, such as your views on the availability of appointments or the quality of the care you received.  We contact you via e-mail and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.  This might be relevant to those patients who would like to be involved but may not be able to commit the time needed to attend meetings. If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email sign up here: http://www.brannammedicalcentre.co.uk/ppg.aspx
