Hi to all of our patients - we have decided to dedicate a small page here on the website just to keep you updated with anything happening at the practice!
Firstly I must apologise for not updating this page as often as I would like to!
Staff news first and, as you may have noticed, we have Dr Donaldson back after her maternity leave so we are now back to our full complement of doctors (hooray!!), our new Practice Nurses are settling in well and you may notice over the next few weeks that we are training a couple of new Receptionists - please bear with us during this time as there is a lot to learn - contrary to popular belief their job isnt just about answering the phone and booking appointments!!
If you have visited the surgery in the last week you may have noticed a small kiosk in Reception - this is designed to gather feedback from our patients and is in association with the University Of Manchester who are carrying out a study called DEPEND (please see our page on "Research") - and you may be approached by Dr Nahar (who is one of the co-ordinators of the study) or one of our PPG volunteers to use the screen & answer 2 very quick questions ... please help us to help them!
As always if you have any comments or queries that you feel we haven't or don't cover on here or in Surgery please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org & mark it for my attention!
Assistant Practice Manager
