Friends and Family Test
Have your say to improve your healthcare...
Did you know that you can now have your say to help improve more services across the NHS? The Friends & Family Test is about giving patients the opportunity to provide quick feedback on their care and treatment experience. It’s already in use in many parts of the NHS and is expanding to a lot more.
You can say what is going well and what can be improved so that people who make decisions about local healthcare can take your views into account.
It doesn’t take long and you don’t need to give your details on your feedback form.
Look for details in our waiting area. You can ask a member of staff how you can take part or find out more online.

NHS 111 IS THE OUT OF HOURS NUMBER FOR ALL PATIENTS
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
Call 111 if:
* your GP practice is closed or you are away from home
* you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
* you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
* you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
* you need health information or reassurance about what to do next
If a nurse or other health worker has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition, continue to use that number.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
