Friends & Family Test Results




The NHS want you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service.

It is based on one simple question:

"Overall, how was your experience of our service?"

Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience – what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you’re helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.

I have always received an excellent service from lambgates. Even in the height of the pandemic any thing I needed or appointments, tests etc were always done very quickly and the drs, nurses, pharmacist are all incredibly responsive. Can't recommend the surgery highly enough!

Reception staff are quick to facilitate a patient's needs tegarding an appointment or advice and go out of their way to assist. Polite and empathetic. Consultation by phone to G.P. during lockdown was well carried out and felt my needs were being heard, and forwarded on to other health services available in good time. Well run surgery, easily accessible for disabled, easy to log on to website, no long waits and friendly, understanding and patient medical team..
