Patient Survey

  • We have changed the way we work due to the pandemic, and we would really appreciate your feedback regarding your recent contact. We feel that by triaging patients we are able to offer greater capacity to ensure that those patients that really need to be seen are seen in a timely manner, rather than having to wait a long time. We are seeking patient thoughts around this new, modern way of working as we feel it represents a positive change in waiting times. Many thanks for taking the time to complete the questions below.
