Better than I expected

November 16, 2021
I was on hold for about 10 minutes to book my flu jab, which isn't excessive and the queue position information is helpful (allowing me to get on with other things until it was my turn). When I got through, the appointment was made efficiently.

Inaccessible by phone, no appointments.

Unable to even join telephone queue to make an appointment as queues have been full on most occasions, advises patients to go to surgery at 8.30 a.m. to try to get appointment but they are gone before you even get there. This was such a good practice before it became part of SHP.

Unable to change, unable to serve patients

Longtime patient with Monkspath Surgery that was, now sadly part of SHP. They are awful and do not deserve the word 'care' in their name. They don't care about us their patients. It has taken them over two years to get my repeat prescription ready, whichever way I have used to ask. Let alone provide a review, now overdue even longer. My medical record has been corrupted so many times I despair. Yes, I have asked them to get this right - by visiting and emailing. No response. They NEGLECT senior citizens. Arrogance, mismanagement, incompetence and a lack of genuine two-way communications with their patients - who pay for this. No wonder so many, including family members, have gone private. Incredibly after all the changes made and criticism their phone system lets patients down, instead they urge call 111 or stand outside a surgery at 8AM to book an appointment.

Access on phone lines is impossible

Phone lines are full to capacity and GPs unwilling to see patients face to face. My son had tonsillitis for 3 weeks and was finally admitted to hospital verging on sepsis due to a GP not willing to see him or swab his throat, The hospital admission could have been prevented. I am surprised that SHP have been allowed to operate in such a manner for so long!

Doctors vary as now part of SHP

Phone lines still appalling, not enough appointments available.
Reminds me of Little Britain - " Computer says no"

Impossible to get an appointment

October 26, 2021
I can’t tell you what the treatment is like as I can’t make an appointment. Tried 3 times to get an appointment over the phone. System is always at capacity so can’t even join a queue. In lockdown this was blamed on lack of staff due to. Covid. Now we’re out of lockdown the situation is worse. During lockdown you could at least join the queue. Tried on line but the odds of getting one of the few appointments before they are snapped up must be similar to winning the lottery. Went to the surgery yesterday but the only appointment available in a months time was on a date when I am due to be out of town. They told me to come back next week when more appointments will be released. This process is an absolute shambles. My medical issues (I hope) are not life threatening but if this situation continues someone will die. It’s as serious as that. No one seems to care.

Cant get through the phone.

Phone always say reached full capacity when we called . Even tried one day at 7.59am says closed, called at 8am and messages says.. call back later we have reached our capacity.

Unable to get through

October 19, 2021
I have spent the past 36 hours constantly trying to get through regarding my 90 year old mother who has been very ill for the past 10 days (not Covid). You don't even have the luxury of joining a queue now! Completely negligent and not fit for purpose. In desperation we called 111 to hear another recorded message that they are extremely busy, ring your local pharmacist.

Flu jab this morning at the community hub

Organised brilliantly - moving queue- I was out back in my car in about 8 minutes- friendly staff

Hit and miss.

Can’t get through on phone. Can’t get face to face appointments. I am told if per chance you are the one lucky one that does get to see a GP then the treatment is still good.
