Bermondsey Spa Medical Practice. Moving forward…
Dr Tariq Bhatti and Dr Das are the Partners and are very keen to improve the patient experience at our practice, so we have developed an Improvement Plan for the future.
As part of this, we have reviewed patient feedback made over the last few months and have identified the key areas for improvement. This is how we are going to address them:
- Getting Appointments – we are in the process of employing more clinical staff with a view to increasing capacity. This will be regularly monitored by our team to identify any shortfall and addressed accordingly.
- Telephone Access – we are in the process of increasing our reception team and, in collaboration with other providers and our PPG have developed a way to use our resources staff more efficiently
We are also working in partnership with other local providers to share and learn from their experience of ‘Best Practice’.
Very importantly, we are working hard to develop a proactive Patient Participation Group (PPG) to improve patient engagement. More information about the PPG is available on our website.
Patient Participation Group
Our aim is to enhance the experience of our patients by working with you and giving you a chance to be part of future changes in the Practice. To this end we are setting up a Patient Participation Group. If you are interested in joining, please let a Receptionist know.
Complaints, Compliments & Suggestions
Every patient has the right to make a complaint about the treatment or care they have received at the Bermondsey Spa Medical Practice. We understand that we may not always get everything right and by telling us about the problem you have encountered, we will be able to improve our services and patient experience.
Most complaints can be resolved at a local level. Please speak to a member of staff if you have a complaint; our staff are trained to handle complaints. Alternatively, ask to speak to the Complaints Manager, Mr Chambis Georgiou.
