You may have read coverage in local newspapers in the last couple of weeks featuring the results of patient surveys examining perceptions of GP services in our area.
Among the GP Practices in the Aylesbury area, Haddenham Medical Centre appeared second from bottom in a results table of 20.
A second list was published by the Thame Gazette which featured the results of 10 GP Practices in or close to Thame, including those in Long Crendon, Chinnor, Princes Risborough and Haddenham. In that table of ten Practices, Haddenham Medical Centre was ranked 10th.
For reasons of space, newspaper articles often have to skip over some of the details, and present headline findings without exploring the underlying factors, or potential limitations in the research methodology.
If you'd like to know more about the survey of GP patients, and the results of Haddenham Medical Centre in a little more detail, click here.
Or better yet, why not come along to the Patient Participation Group (PPG) meeting to be held at Haddenham Medical Centre on Tuesday 19th April, beginning at 7.00pm when you will be able to quiz Dr Karen West (one of our GPs) and Ellen Solley (the Practice Manager) about Haddenham's low ranking in the latest survey.
Anyone registered with the Haddenham Practice is entitled to attend the PPG, and you will be made most welcome.
If you are not a regular attendee of PPG meetings at Haddenham Medical Centre, and would like to participate on Tuesday, it would help if you could kindly indicate that intention in advance so that adequate seating can be prepared. To do so, or for more information, please Email: email@example.com or telephone 01844 290244
