Friends & Family Test December 2014
There will be no requirement for Surgeries to complete a Survey this year as this is being replaced by the ‘Friends & Family Test’.
The question in the ‘Friends & Family Test’ is: How likely are you to recommend our services to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?’
The possible answers are:
‘Extremely likely; Likely; Neither likely or unlikely; Unlikely; Extremely Unlikely; and Don’t Know’
These answers generate scores and once these are determined, the result is sent to NHS England on a monthly basis to be published on the NHS Choices website.
Please look out for the papers containing these questions which will be in Reception from December 2014. Or you can complete this online.

The FLU immunisation programme has now started. If you fall into the 'AT RISK' category please make your appointment.
Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions (EPS2)
From the 1st of October the surgery is introducing Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions (EPS2). This means that your prescription can be sent directly to your preferred pharmacy. If you do not have a nominated pharmacy, you can do so by contacting the dispensary. However, it is still possible to collect your paper script as before from the surgery if you prefer.
Child Immunisation Clinic
Changes to Tuesday's Child Immunisation Clinic. From the 11th of February this clinic will be by appointments only. Please speak to reception to book an appointment.
We are now sending text confirmation of your appointment, plus a reminder two days beforehand (if booked far enough ahead). PLEASE ensure that the reception team have your current mobile phone number for this purpose.
For children under 12 we will be texting the parent whose number is on that child’s record.
