"I still think this is the best surgery I have attended in my 63 years"
100%Reviewed 23 Nov 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: GP Consultation
Today was an unmitigated disaster for Birdhurst in my view, and I should NOT be having to write a negative report. I have been a very satisfied, encouraging and grateful patient for 22 years but today was different.
The answering machine was on all day - well, every time I rang, it was, telling me the surgery was 'closed' and if I wanted 'emergency treatment' I had to contact another NHS number. I didn't - I just wanted to find out what progress had been made to get me the echocardiogram the hospital told me I should ask my GP for. At 5pm I went to the surgery. It was open, contrary to the recorded message but I was told it was some sort of 'training day'. Surely it should say something like that on the message. These days you can get answering machines that can issue a multitude of messages, thus keeping the patients 'in the loop' at all times. I can only put the responsibility for this on the practice manager who should be aware that the job is as much to keep patients accurately informed as anything else. Wasted a great deal of time on this today, and had a totally unnecessary car journey. My first really negative experience
AWFUL EXPERIENCE TODAY!! However, I still think this is the best surgery I have attended in my 63 years. Please invest in a better answering service if it is too much trouble to change the outgoing message according to current circumstances not covered by the existing message. This is not too much to ask.
You don't need to go looking for any other practice in Croydon. You have found the best, and I am sure they will respond positively and expeditiously to this criticism. If not, my experience today will reduce my five star rating to three stars.
