I have never had a problem with getting an appointment, all staff have been helpful, practice nurse Dan and Barbra are a delight to see. The vampire upstairs Barb, she has always got a smile on her face and always laughing she makes you feel at ease never seen her miserable. Dr. Martin is one in a million she has put my other half right, even rings to see if she is O.K. now and again. Dr. Martin is busy but she finds the time for my other half. Your Nurses are all polite and efficient in there work the ones I have seen over the years anyway and I am sure the ones I have not seen are just as good. The after care is way far beyond what I would expect from the N.H.S. getting check ups and letters asking for blood pressure/ cholesterol and diabetic check up once a year. I feel that I and my other half are so lucky to have such a fantastic medical centre.

Drs and nurses are amazing, if the rude and miserable receptionists allow you to . They decide if you are ill enough to see a doctor , if they decide in their opinion your not they just refuse !!! Horrid and unprofessional

Dear Patient Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment. We always welcome feedback positive or negative to help us improve on our services. Our reception staff are trained to ask questions when taking calls to ascertain how urgent your need is, and, which clinician is best to help you. It may be that you need to see a specialist nurse, or one of our advanced nurse practitioners, or even maybe a query a medical secretary can help you with e.g. chasing a referral, arranging transport, getting an insurance form completed, or chasing test results etc. The receptionists are also asked to take down some history to your problem to inform the clinician before you enter the room, e.g. have you tried any over the counter medication, how long have you had the symptoms etc. They are acting under the doctor's instructions to ensure we can meet demand, and that patient's are seen in a timely and appropriate way. If you would like to discuss this issue or any other problems please do not hesitate to email me at birchingtonmcpm@nhs.net so that I can then look into the matter further for you. I can trace your phone call and listen to the call being triage and identify if there are any training or learning points I need to address. Unfortunately, I cannot look into the matter based on the information you provide above, alone. I hope that you are able to make contact with me and provide more detail so I can look into the matter for you. Kind regards Hannah Price Practice Manager

Following a complaint regarding the dissemination of test results that my mother had had and the realisation of the complexities of the NHS and responsibilities of GP's and hospital consultants I have to give credit to the Practice Manager, Hannah, for resolving these issues. You have efficeintly dealt with the issues raised and I would like to thank you and the surgery staff for the assistance you have given - please pass on the compliment to those concerned as I realise we are quick to criticise and not so generous with praise.

A few days ago I gave credit for your attention to my problem now I want to do so again this time for my wife Maureen Clark. Sincere thanks to Barbara and the team for helping us out of an unpleasant experience simply by listening and thoroughly checking her patient. All is much improved with a referral to cardiac consultant which we all feel will have a good result. Once againour sincere thanks for all you do best regards Walter Clark
