Receptionists rude, can never get through.

December 8, 2020
I rang the surgery from 8am to 8.40am for my 7 year old daughter, who is waiting for grommets. Once I got through, I explained my daughter's history and stated she needs antibiotics as her ear had discharge coming out (previous experience I know she needed antibiotics). To be told no telephone consultations available. Now I know they're not taking face to face appointments, but still they never seem to have any telephone consultations! And when you go down there, well all the receptionists sit there let the phone ring whilst they do nothing!! It's a shambles.

Brilliant surgery

Brilliant surgery treat me really well. They go above and beyond and helped me get off heroin. They also referred me to CGL.

Provided full support to my wife

Very difficult to get an appointment, otherwise very good. Provided full support to my wife during pregnancy. During her pregnancy my GP was better than Birmingham women’s hospital.

Good but difficult to get an appointment

Good but calling at 8 in the morning on the dot to book an appointment and still not getting a place is ridiculous.

Delayed referral

I have a 12 year old daughter who has ADHD and is an autistic spectrum. I found ten cans of aerosol under her bed in January and took her to GP to discuss this as it was obviously very concerning. The GP just checked my daughter physically and said that she is fine. I had to then take her to A&E on another occasion as I found another can. They did a safeguarding referral to drug counselling. Finally 8 weeks ago a specialist took my worries more seriously and referred her to dermatology. They thought she applied aerosol directly on her skin as she has a sensory issue. Only through this we recently got autism diagnosis. I feel that if the GP had asked us more questions and had more answers of autism we could have got help much sooner. We are still waiting for CHMHS referrals as apparently we have to ask the school to do this.

They never have any appointment.

Difficult to get an appointment

September 7, 2018
When asking for my repeat medication, You have to go online and when you do than only give you the recent medication. Un-empathetic GP regarding mental health issues . Don’t have time for patients, I feel rushed, not listened to. Feel misunderstood regarding mental health issues. Really difficult and inconvenient to get an appointment, waited weeks.

Yearly medical for disability

The general care the service provides is very good. However, poor service and feedback from yearly medical.
