The National Patient Survey ( The 2019 results will be posted shortly once we have finalised our Practice Plans for 2019 to 2021)
The National Patient Survey has been running for several years now and patients can view the results online at https://gp-patient.co.uk/: however the Practice will now download these and post them in PDF format for patients to download. These results are also posted on the main notice boards in the North Road Suite Practice Reception area for patients to view. Patients are sent the National GP Survey forms at random so if you receive a survey we would very much appreciate if you would complete and return it in the envelope provided. The covering letter tells you what to do if you need assistance to do this.
Once the results are published we are notified and we then provide the results to our Patient Participation Group (PPG) members as well as displaying them on the main notice boards in the Practice. We also review the results with our Practice Team and the PPG Team during our meetings so we can formulate our action plans. You can download our latest results here: north road suite national patient survey 2018
We continue to be above both the Local North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group of Practices and the National average in each criteria except we have notices two areas we wish to work on supported by our Patient Participation Group Team.
47% usually get to see or speak to their preferred GP when they would like to.
Local NKCCG average 49% and 50% National Average
Our actions: During 2018 we have seen some changes to the GP Partners, on GP Partner left the Practice and we have introduced 2 new GP Partners:
Dr Anand Ramasamy and Dr Arief Ahamed
Both of these two GP’s are very experienced and worked in the Practice before becoming Partners. Our new GP Partners are beginning to establish themselves and have been well received. Along with Dr Chandra (Senior Partner), Dr Sharmala Ramalingam and our Advanced Nurse Practitioner – Joanne Mckeeman they are working hard to provided the continuity of care our patients value, appreciate and which our GP’s totally support. We are now taking this forward to see how we can improve patient satisfaction in this area and will be formulating a plan during our forthcoming Practice meetings and also discussing this with our Patient Group.
75% say they have had enough support from local services or organisations in the last 12 months to help manage their long-term condition(s)
Local NKCCG average 78% and National average 79%
We are finding that quite often its is a patients social circumstances that have a significant impact on their health and their ability to either manage their condition or find the right support they need to do this. Our Patient Group is supporting the Practice to help promote to patients the services that are of offer to help patients. One of these organisations is Better in Kirklees (Social Prescribing Team) and Carers Count as quite often a patient with a long term condition(s) themselves are also caring for a family member which also impacts significantly on them.
We are also going to survey our patients with long term conditions to find out what additional local support services would be useful in helping them to manage their conditions this will provide us with a clearer picture. We can then feed this information back to our North Kirklees CCG and where ever possible make more information about local services available to our patients. There is a great deal about local services on our Practice website and the NKCCG website https://www.northkirkleesccg.nhs.uk/ however, we appreciate that not all patients use or have access to the internet.
