Good experience

August 2, 2022
I am 17. I was nervous contacting them for an appointment as previously my mum did this but I wanted independence.
It was about 2 months ago & I phoned and told the person who answered the phone why I was calling.
They advised it was something I could speak to a nurse about. I was phoned by a nurse at a time good for me & she could help me over the phone but said I may need a blood test. I visited for that a few days later.
I then had another phone call a week later with results & prescription to collect.
It all worked well and I am happy with the outcome.

Support for learning disability

They are good at sorting my prescriptions. They are helpful when I go to see them. I have a learning disability & they understand my needs.

Phone appointments preferred

Good with children, I can always book appointments quickly for them. Not as good with adults with longer waits.
Phone appointments work well as they suit home/work life balance. Rare to be able to book an appointment after work (after 5pm) they always go quickly so I would prefer phone appointments offered first to avoid having to take time off work.

Not even verbal consultation just text

Very poor. Rang for appointment and got an online link to write in 300 characters my symptoms. Asked for a phone call and got a text message not really addressing my symptoms with a message to ring for a telephone call to speak to the physio which I can’t have until July 1st. Asked for a phone call and got a text. This is the third time over several months when I needed a doctor that I just got a text.

Quickly seen

I have a learning disability and they see me quickly. They check on the phone what it's about and they give me an appointment.
I am independent but need support with prescriptions and that happens here and at Sowerby Bridge Pharmacy.
I use the website as I find that easier than waiting on the phone to sort prescriptions.

Terrible. Doctors are not providing service.

1) The appointment booking system is abysmal, you are directed to an online form which rarely works. If you call they refuse to acknowledge you.
2) They responded to a request about tonsilitus with a text message having never spoken to the patient, who was pregnant. The message contained no actual medical care.
3) I had to threaten them with complaints to NHS England and point out that I am a doctor myself before they gave a call back.
4) They assume non medically trained members of the public are capable of performing diagnostic medicine with no consultation.

I frankly think the practice should be disolved.

Absolutely brilliant

Had a medical issue so registered an E-consult report at 8am on the day after the Christmas break. My GP phoned me at 9.30am, discussed the issue, agreed a treatment programme and I collected a prescription in the afternoon. Absolutely brilliant.

Very bad

Waiting for a call back. 6 hours later.

Called in for the offer of the shingles vacci

June 28, 2019
All went very well. Waiting area OK, lass giving the vaccination seemed quite competent and polite. Very little waiting beforehand. Advised, correctly to, wait in the surgery for 10 minutes afterwards.

Thankfully not a patient

Took my father here last week, as he is a registered patient. Nightmare. Rude and uninterested receptionist. I then had to explain to her how the nominated pharmacy thing works for prescriptions as she couldn't get her head around the concept of it being sent electronically to them. The two people in the queue in front also were getting annoyed at her incompetence so I know it can't just be me. Thankfully convinced my father to change surgeries.
