It is with sadness that we have to inform our patients that Dr Shabir Bhatti will be retiring from the Practice on 30th April 2019 after working in this area for some 25 years.
We are sure that all of his patients will join his colleagues in wishing him a long, healthy and peaceful retirement.
Bermondsey Spa Medical Practice. Moving forward …………………
Dr Tariq and Dr Das will remain as 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.
If you want to find out more about how we are taking the surgery forward, please attend our Engagement Event at the next PPG meeting on 29th May 2019 at 18:00, at the Surgery.
Please come along and be a part of the future of your Practice.
