I have been attending Dr. Allcock since 1982 when he was based in the Health Centre and since in the Wootton Street Surgery. As he has retired as a GP, I have found Dr Toleman to be the longest serving and best Dr in the surgery. She is patient, a good communicator i.e. listening, clear & concise, and focussed on doing her best for me. She has performed a number of small procedures on me which none of the other doctor's have offered and has saved me attending a hospital. She seems to have a wide experience and knowledge of medicine. Having seen a number of GP's at Wootton Street and the Drayton surgery now, she always comes out tops, I am dreading her retiring.
I saw Dr Toleman for the first time today at Wootten St surgery in Cosham. She was extremely patient, took her time, listened to me, validated and took my concerns seriously. I felt she had the experience, knowledge and skills to make decisions about my care, whilst involving me in these. Then she went ahead and did tests that I thought I would have to book another appointment for, straight away. I came away feeling that I had been treated with care and respect, and as an intelligent equal. This is sadly not always my experience of visiting a GP. Thank you Dr Toleman
