Welcome to the Southwood practice Website
Southwood Practice is run by Dr Andrew Whitfield with the aim of providing comprehensive healthcare of the highest quality to our patients.
Reduced advanced pre-bookable appointments
Due to the predicted increase in patient demand during December and January, and the national shortage of GPs, the surgery has reduced the number of pre-bookable appointments in order to maintain the quality of service provided during this busy time.
The Practice is sad to announce that Dr Bucher will not be returning from her maternity leave, this has also been reflected in the reduction of advanced bookable appointments.
If you missed our flu clinic on Saturday, and you require a vaccination, please call reception where we will book you an appointment.
We are now taking bookings for the children's flu vaccination, please enquire at Reception.
The NHS Friends and Family Test
The NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you, the patient, to provide feedback on the services that we provide here at Southwood Practice. The questionnaire is a brief set of questions asking if you would recommend us to your friends and family.
The feedback you give will help NHS England to improve services for everyone.
At Southwood Practice we are offering you various ways to complete the FFT. There are questionnaires available in the surgery, you can click on the link below, and use the button at the bottom of this website - take our survey.
If you receive text reminders for your appointments via your mobile phone, you will be sent a follow up text after your appointment in which you can reply.
Further information regarding the FFT is available from NHS.uk via http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/Pages/nhs-friends-and-family-test.aspx
