I went to surgery with several symptoms and saw Dr Kandy. She thought my heart might be the problem. That afternoon she arranged for blood tests and x rays to be done and got the results that evening, and phoned me at home late evening from her home, out of surgery hours. I felt she really went that extra mile. Thankfully all was as it should be. The Doctor has arranged further tests. I felt very reassured by her actions.
I have had a bad fall off a horse fracturing multiple ribs and vertebrae’s I wanted to say thank you to Julie, Jackie and Beth, for going the extra mile and supporting me while I was not mobile, assisting with prescriptions etc. Thank you also to Dr Fegan for her guidance and advice.
A huge thank you to the very professional and helpful Julie on reception. She initially helped me resolve an issue with a repeat prescription without making me foolish for having made such an error in the first place. I have to be honest, I expected to have to wait at least 48 hours for a new prescription etc. However, within half an hour Julie had sorted it More importantly however, I became concerned about my baby as I walked home as he’d had a bump to the head the previous evening and now seemed unusually sleepy. By the time I got back to the surgery, I couldn’t rouse him at all and don’t think I’ve ever been so frightened. Julie saw my fear and saw to us immediately. She was calm throughout and ascertained whether he was breathing or not, a very brief history and explained to me that she would be pressing the emergency button and what that meant. The GP we saw (Dr Jamie) was thorough, patient, professional. Everything you could wish for. My baby is fine and I am immensely and eternally grateful to both of these amazing women. I’m usually the one dealing with emergencies, so to be on the receiving end of such calm and professional treatment gave me a whole new new appreciation of the panic you feel in such a situation.
I had had a fall on my driveway was very shaken up lots of blood I had hit my face directly on to the concrete having passed out. I came into the surgery and spoke with Julie the receptionist - she was fantastic let me down and immediately made arrangement for someone to see me. She knows that I am deaf and really went out of her way to help me - she didn't just do her job - I was suffering from some chest pain also she kept an eye on me whilst I waited to see someone and ensured that I was not driving myself home - I was frightened by.
While I was waiting for an appt an elderly gentleman came into reception and complained about not receiving his prescription as had been told. The receptionist was very polite and apologized. The man was very persistent and his complaining continued for 10 mins or so. All the while the receptionist was calm and tried to reassure the man with suggestions as to what to do in the future if it should happen again. He went away still grumbling but reassured later went up to receptionist just to tell her how well she had handled.
