Annual Patient Survey
Please take time to view the final report and action plan following the results of our latest Patient Surveys. We would be very pleased to receive any feedback on further actions you feel should be taken to improve the quality of care to our patients. Please e-mail any comments to the e-mail address at the top of this website.
If you would like to take part in future Surveys and you have not already registered your interest, could we ask you to add your name to the list of patients who are contributing by going to the "SIGN UP FOR OUR SURVEY" link below.
Your name will NOT be used and your answers cannot be linked to you, but maintaining a list of contributing patients will help us to assess whether we have a good cross section of our patient population.

The Stour Surgery Patients’ Circle is an organisation that has been running since 1996.
The Circle provides a vital forum for maintaining additional links between the Surgery - doctors, nurses, administration and patients. All patients registered with Stour Surgery are members of the Patients’ Circle.
Its objectives are:
To give patients a collective voice in their relationship with the Surgery. For example a patient might find it easier to express an opinion to another patient than she/he would to a member of the Surgery staff.
- To encourage patients to take an increased interest in the running and welfare of the Surgery.
- To carry out fund raising activities with a view to help in providing medical equipment over and above that provided by the National Health Service.
- To publish a newsletter, Stour News, issued quarterly.
- To carry out patient surveys so as to obtain the comments and suggestions of patients.
- Under the guidance of medical staff, to advance patient education in health care by means of lectures, forums and self help groups.
The Patients’ Circle Committee meets quarterly in order to review progress and to plan ahead. Pick up a leaflet in Reception if you would like to join the Committee.
New Members are always welcome!
All registered patients are welcome to join the Patient Circle Committee although, in the interests of effective decision making, membership of the core is limited.
We have therefore established a 'Virtual' Patient Group so that we can ensure a wider involvement of our patients on a regular basis to continually improve the care and services we offer. Specialist sub-groups may also be formed to deal with specific topics utilising individual skills and interests. If you are interested, please click on the 'Sign-up Form' above.
We are always keen to hear the views of any patients who wish to comment on any aspect of the surgery services or activities. Please click on the 'Contact Us' tab above and let has have your views.
