Friends & Family Test
From the 1st December 2014 all GP practices are required to ask patients the Friends & Family test questions that will be monitored by NHS England on a monthly basis. The two questions are as follows:
How likely are you to recommend our GP Surgery to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?
Please feel free to offer us your opinion of how you think we measure up against these questions by clicking on the 'take our patient survey' button at the bottom of this page.
