'How forward thinking of you to include wi-fi. Work is less disrupted as I can do it remotely while waiting. Less stress.'
'Thank you very much for sorting out my medication problem. I am very appreciative of the time you took to talk to me and that I have taken 2 Gabapentin today and I have been pain free all day.'
'I was really impressed by the professional attitude of your reception staff when I last came to the surgery. I did not expect an appointment on the same day as my visit, but the reception staff were concerned at the symptoms I described and fast tracked me to see you. Thank you for taking the time to see me whilst you was the Duty doctor, my mind was put at ease.'
'Have been to The Limes Medical Centre three times in the past week. Phone service has been prompt, have been offered an appointment within the hour and have been seen each time without a wait. Super service, well done, keep up the good work.'
'I just wanted to say that in a time when the NHS and GP practices are often criticised. I received excellent service from you and wanted to thank Dr Ashford and the lovely receptionist on duty that evening. I left the surgery feeling completely reassured and the cut has healed nicely!'
'I was so happy with the treatment I received from both The Limes and at Princess Alexandra Hospital, where I had emergency surgery later that day. Other men on my ward were in a worse clinical condition than I was because important symptoms were not acted on by their GPs. So... the Limes triage system works. What a knife edge we walk on every day.'
'Many thanks with the expeditious way I was seen this morning regarding a particularly annoying chest problem. I rang the emergency line at the surgery and saw Nurse Practitioner Heather at 10.15am. She was courteous and thorough in spite of having a wheezing, coughing specimen in front of her. Couldn't have asked for better 'service'. Much obliged.'
