Friends and Family Test (FFT)

The FFT is a feedback tool which offers patients of NHS-funded services the opportunity to provide feedback about the care and treatment they have received.

The FFT tool combines a simple question, asking patients how likely they would be to recommend the service they have received to their friends and family; with at least one complementary follow-up question to enable patients to provide further detail about their experience.

To provide your feedback, please click on the "Friends and Family Test" link on the right navigation pane under the "Have your say" section OR ask at reception for a form.

On Line Appointment Booking

We have a range of appointments that can be booked (or cancelled) on line. Please complete the necessary documentation available from reception.

To reduce the number of missed appointments we are now sending patients a text message containing their appointment details when a booking is made.

A further message will also be sent 48 hours before the appointment is due as a reminder.

Facebook

Please note: We do not have an official facebook page. This is something we are looking at developing in the future. The Hedon Group Practice (HGP) facebook pages which are currently on the internet, were not set up and are not managed by HGP. Anything on the unofficial facebook pages are not monitored by the Management or GPs at HGP.

Test Results

Test Results

Please telephone the surgery between 11.00 - 16.00, Monday to Friday for the results of any tests you have undergone. The telephone is not as busy then and the Reception staff are more able to assist you.

All results are viewed by a doctor who will advise of any further action required. This message will then be passed on via the reception staff.

When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.

It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.

Confidentiality

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate, unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data, or they are not capable of understanding the results.

Specimens

If you are requested to provide a specimen we would prefer you to collect and use a specimen container which is available at the Reception desk.

Please always write your full name, date of birth and the date of the specimen on the container before handing it back to the Reception on the same day, before 12.00 noon.
