Listening to Patients

Vector showing rating

We are a practice that genuinely listens and we are always interested to hear from patients about their experience of our services. The local channels of communication include verbal and written feedback, the Friends & Family Test & Patient Group Meetings.

When there are concerns that are not resolved, patients can opt to use our formal complaints procedure. The issue will then be thoroughly investigated and a full response provided. Our services are also monitored by the Care Quality Commission and the Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB).

Friends & Family Test

Friends & Family Test

When you receive care or treatment within the NHS, you can fill out a short questionnaire to give us feedback that will help to improve local services for everyone.

It gives you a chance to tell us what you think about your experience… good or bad. You can explain your answer and tell us how we can improve things.

We will look at all feedback and use it to make decisions that will make local services better for local people.

It is open to all patients, whatever your age or healthcare needs. You won’t have to give your name or contact details so our staff won’t know the comments came from you.

We believe that, if our services are good enough for you and your family and friends, then they’ll be good for everyone. So come on and put US to the test by telling us what you think.
