You have been in Wuhan or Hubei Province in the last 14 days or have been in contact with someone confirmed as having Coronavirus, even if you feel well

The Patient Participation Group

is looking for a secretary and assistant secretary.  Please see attached form. Latest minutes available under the Patient Group tab.  Next meeting is Wednesday, 1st April 2020

We need you

Missed Appointments

Rather disappointingly, our "did not attend" figure was far higher than normal in December at 240 missed appointments, and frankly was not much better in January (241 missed appointments).  Whilst it is appreciated that people are extremely busy at this time of year, it is rather frustrating when so many other patients need to be seen by a clinician and can't get an appointment because somebody else did not turn up or bother to cancel their appointment.  Please ALWAYS remember to cancel unwanted appointments.

Inappropriate Social Media usage

It has come to our attention that some people are leaving unofficial reviews on various social media sites (e.g. facebook etc), including the use of extremely inappropriate language and personal attacks on members of staff.  This is not acceptable and may result in action being taken by the surgery (and other public bodies).  These sites are not anything to do with Northdown Surgery - we have no editing or control rights and no responses will be made to these comments.  In order to have your review/feedback/complaint responded to in the appropriate way, please use the correct channels as above.
