Welcome to St. Peter's Road Surgery
Patient wellbeing is at the centre of all that we do at St Peter's. From a friendly welcome, to a practical appointment system, we aim to make visiting our team of doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals a good experience. Teamwork extends beyond our team of professionals - we also seek to work in partnership with our patients; actively listening and focusing on the needs and wishes of the individual. Continuity of care is a priority and, whilst there is a team of experts here to consult, we provide consistency to ensure that patients can build a long-term relationship with their own doctor.

What patients say about us?
PATIENT ALERT - PLEASE READ
NHS England has been alerted to a recent incident where a patient was contacted by someone claiming to work at Bradford on Avon Health Centre in Wiltshire. The caller stated that the patient’s prescription was ready for collection and could be delivered if debit / credit card payment details were provided. The patient was further advised that he needed to pay an additional cost following a change that had been made to the prescription.
If patients experience any similar requests for payment or have any concerns that they may have been targeted, please contact the police via Action Fraud on telephone number 0300 123 2040 or text phone 0300 123 2050. For further details on Action Fraud, please visit www.actionfraud.police.uk
How Information About You Helps to Provide Better Care
NHS England in conjunction with HSCIC (Health & Social Care Information Centre) are looking to link information from all different places where you receive care, such as GP, hospital and community services to help provide a full picture of our National Health Service.
This will allow comparisons to be made between the care you received in one area against the care received in another, to see what works.
Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but NOT your name, will be used to link records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. The information can then be used by researchers and those planning health services to try and provide the best care possible for everyone.
For more information please click on the link below;
If you do not want your information shared outside the GP Practice then please contact the surgery so that a note can be made on your records and your information can be removed
Your care will NOT be affected by the choice you make.
Your Electronic Patient Record & The Sharing of Information
(This is separate to the extraction of data referred to above by HSCIC)
Today electronic records are kept in all the places where you receive healthcare. These places can usually only share information via letter, fax or phone.Here at St Peters Road Surgery we use a system called SystmOne that can allow, with your consent, the sharing of full electronic records across different healthcare services.
For more information and to find out how to 'share' your information please go to Further Information - Electronic Sharing on the right-handside.
The Surgery runs in-house training for both its clinical and non-clinical staff on a regular basis to ensure we are able to continue to provide the best service possible. In order to facilitate the training the surgery has to close for a couple of hours, normally during the afternoon.
A note for your diaries, the following training dates have been planned;
Tuesday 19th November
If you need to speak to a Doctor urgently during this time, phone the surgery on 01285 653184 and the telephone answering service will contact the on call Doctor for you. Thank you for your understanding.
Patient Experience Survey Results 2012/2013
91% of all patient ratings about St Peters Road were good,
very good or excellent
During the early part of 2013 the Surgery undertook a patient satisfaction survey. We have been delighted with the results but we still feel that improvements can be made, so together with the Patient Participation Group we have reviewed the results and agreed on an action plan.
If you wish to see the Patient Participation Group Report 2012/2013 please click on the highlighted text.
The Surgery would like to thank those patients who have participated in the group so far, but would also like to encourage others to join us, we have a diverse population and would like to see as many people represented as possible. If you are interested please contact the Surgery.
If booking a telephone appointment on-line the doctor will endeavour to call you back within 30 minutes of the time booked, however sometimes this is not possible. If you are only available for a certain time please make a note in the 'comments' box i.e, please call back before 10.00 a.m OR available between 9.00 a.m and 11.00 a.m.
