We are due to be inspected by the Care Quality Commission on Wednesday 16th July 2014.
In advance of this they have asked us to display copies of the attached poster asking for feedback about the care you receive at the surgery.
Contact details to send your feedback to are on the bottom of the poster, or there are comments cards available in each of our waiting rooms.
CQC have also asked for two to three members of our participation group to come and talk to them during our inspection. Please let the Practice Manager know if you would be willing to do this and when you would be available.
Please let us know if you are unable to keep your appointment.

Registration Letters from NHS England - please respond if you get one
The NHS is carrying out work in Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to make sure that the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.
If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. Changes can be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by freephone, via text message or online.
It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time. If we don't have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.
We may also need to contact you :
With test results
To invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer for example
To offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella
To give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long term illness
Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHS can be certain about your details. Otherwise, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.
