Patient Survey Results 2018 - The latest results from the National GP Patient Survey for Long Bennington Medical Centre can be found here.
We put great emphasis on recruiting suitably skilled and motivated staff who will help us in delivering the best care possible for our patients. After initial induction and training in their individual roles e.g. reception or dispensing we then have whole practice training events every month. These meetings allow us the opportunity to reflect on the services that we provide, to consider how we can meaningfully interpret and implement NHS innovations and reforms, to learn from situations where we feel that we could have done better (using a tool known as Significant Event Audit), and to provide generic staff training. To enable the doctors and staff to keep up to date the practice will be closed for routine clinics for staff training once a month from between 1.30pm and 4.30pm on the following dates:
Tuesday 9th October 2018
Tuesday 13th November 2018
Tuesday 18th December 2018
The staff had a very interesting training session about Dementia Friends and changing the way people think, act and talk about dementia. For more information about Dementia Friends please click here.
