Stour Surgery is a "Quality practice"
Stour Surgery prides itself on providing high quality patient care, and as part of that constantly monitors all areas including:
- Standards of clinical care
- Access for patients
- Management systems
- Equipment and procedures
- How our nurses (both practice and Community) work
- How the receptionists and telephonists deal with patients and callers.
The practice has consistently gained very high results in annual patient satisfaction surveys and with the government Quality Outcome Framework. The access systems adopted by the surgery have been accepted as good practice and published as an example of improving patient contact and service.
At Stour Surgery we want to get better at communicating with our patients. We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you. If you find it hard to read our letters or if you need someone to support you at appointments, please let us know by completing the attached questionnaire. Help Us to Help You
We want to know if you need a British Sign Language interpreter or advocate, if we can support you to lip read, use a hearing aid or communication tool or require information in Braille, large print or easy read. Please ask at reception when you arrive for your next appointment, or call us on 01202 464500
