October 12, 2021
I have been a patient at Castlefields Health Centre for 40 years it is excellent I can phone the surgery and get appointment the same day . The Centre is clean the staff are brilliant and very approachable they make referrals when we need them to other services and specialists as my husband is a Diabetic

Difficulty to obtain repeat prescription

September 6, 2021
Given pain relief and other tablets. Tried to order repeat prescription informed only after I contacted surgery these were short term medication until I had phone consultation with MSK. Hadn't had that, required tablets took almost 4 days to sort problem out.

After a Long Overdue Need for a Haircut, I noticed an Unusual Coloured Mole on my Temple. I 'phoned The Health Centre at Castlefields, and explained what I saw on my Head, and was requested to send Two Pictures of The Mole. The Next Day I was urgently referred to The Hospital, and I have an Appointment Date. The Speed and Efficiency was Totally Unexpected. Many Thanks to The Doctor and Staff involved at Castlefields Health Centre. Henry Stephenson

very caring and proffessional

I have a number of health conditions and have to have regular blood tests because of the medication I am on, I was offered a home visit by the nurse, Fiona, via telephone to take my bloods. The nurse came to my home and I sat in the hall by my front door the nurse had the correct PPE on she wore a visor and gloves, she was lovely, caring, and very professional. I am very grateful for the care I receive from the surgery .

Surgery is very vigilant

I have to attend the surgery because I have lots of health conditions I have to have regular routine bloodtests, when I went to my appointment I was met by a member of staff and had to have my temperature taken and asked if I had a cough and gave me wipes to wipe my hands before I went into the clinic. I think that is really good to try and stop the virus spreading and very proactive

waiting three weeks for appointments

February 4, 2020
Having to wait three weeks for a GP appointment is frustrating there are not enough GP's in the surgery this all started a few years ago when they closes another GP surgery down and dispersed the patients and now we cannot get appointments . It needs to be improved by providing more GPs to meet the demand it is ridiculous.

Diabetic Nurse is lovely

I attend the surgery regarding my diabetes as I have been diabetic for a number of years. The nurse is really good. She takes her time and listens to me. I am finally getting my diabetes under control thanks to her advice and her caring approach.

Listened to me

January 29, 2020
I had been going the GP surgery for a while as I have a number of health conditions related to my heart and diabetes I did not feel I was being listened too or my concerns were taken seriously . However, both GPs I have seen recently have been brilliant. They sat and listened to my concerns on separate appointments. I have now been referred to hospital for an endoscopy and a scan of my head.

Hanging on the telephone

January 29, 2020
I'm the PA for an elderly lady and I tried ringing the practice to book an appointment for her. When I rang the phone message said I was number 11 in the queue. I hung on for 45 minutes until I was number 2 in the queue. Then it said there was a problem with their phone system and I got cut off.
It is a fairly regular occurance that I'm waiting on the phone for a long while to speak with the practice.
I often have to ring NHS 111 instead.
