Absolutely wonderful GP surgery

I was concerned upon leaving my previous GP surgery that I would not get the same level of treatment at Nightingale - same day appointments, doctors who went the extra mile, being involved in my own care - but BOY WERE MY WORRIES UNFOUNDED! Since changing surgeries I can honestly say I am nothing but impressed by the service at Nightingale. Firstly - the reception staff are unbelievably friendly. They always answer the phone in a way that doesn't sound like they are overworked and underpaid (as all NHS staff are by definition). Of the 3 times I've called for a same day appointment, I have been given an appointment within about 4 hours and the third time I got an appointment first thing the next day, which was absolutely fine for the issue I had. So far so good. When I've attended I've seen a different doctor each time for an acute issue (no real continuity needed, but when I have requested a specific doctor for a particular long standing problem I have been able to see them within a week), and all the doctors I have seen have been outstanding. Each one took the time to listen to my concerns, take on board my feelings towards those concerns and provide me with a treatment I have been happy with. I've felt empowered to take control of my own care in terms of a chronic issue I have, and have felt completely supported - with follow up appointments not only recommended but booked on the spot. Honestly guys can I say - thank you so much, what a fantastic team. I work for the NHS and have done for a number of years so I believe I have some credibility when I say that what you do with (always) limited resources is amazing. I hope other patients of yours will also take the time to provide feedback because you absolutely deserve it. Nothing to gripe about, keep doing what you're doing and THANK YOU!
