The Ingham Practice continues to provide a highly professional, convenient and patient friendly minor surgical service which is greatly appreciated by the service users. This is supported by this survey, patients’ feedback and their complimentary comments.
Over the years that we have been providing our minor surgery service, we are pleased to have been able to decrease the waiting times, provide a convenient service to patients, reduce pressure on secondary care and in doing so make considerable savings for the NHS. We are pleased to announce our plans to expand our activities to include carpal tunnel procedures within the Minor Surgery activities in the very new future.
Minor Surgery Audit and Survey was analysed in September 2016. We are excited to share with all service users the results of this Audit. The Practice has received an excellent overall score of 98%. The results are very pleasing. This survey will help us to reflect on our service to ensure that the Practice continues to provide the best possible and convenient service for all patients.
