Thankyou to the patients who completed our feedback survey. The results have been analysed by an independent company (CFEP Surveys) as part of our practice accreditation requirements. The survey results are compared to other General Practices and our ratings allocated into a minimum, low, medium or upper quartile. We are extremely happy with the results with only one area appearing in the medium quartile (Seeing doctor of choice) and all the other responses were well in the upper quadrant. Checking our 2017 survey results we have improved (or scored the same) in all areas. If you are interested in viewing the whole report, please let the receptionist know.

There was also some comments about how we can improve our service including:

· Reduce costs / Bulk billing for seniors would be good.

· Dull the sound level.

· Clinician: Proactive service, e.g. if there is a condition with a patient, then monitor it regularly, i.e. appointment suggested by the practice rather than patient asking for the check.

· The length of time waiting to see the doctor was 45 minutes

· By having a local doctor on call every weekend, not every third weekend.

We are always interested in your comments regarding improving our practice and would like to encourage all our patients to discuss the issue of bulk billing and weekend on call rationale with any of our doctors. There are reasons why we need to practice this way and it may help alleviate patient concerns if the restrictions of bulk billing and the added stress providing 24/7 oncall is explained further.

Thankyou from all staff at the Mount Beauty Medical Centre.
