Waiting for a hospital appointment and want to know what is happening? Please call the hospital!
If you call us, we then call the hospital, then they call us back, then we call you, then if you don't like what you hear ...
Far better if you call them direct - miss out the middle person, and reduce the chance of delays or mix-ups.
If it's Bedford South Wing call the main number (01234 355122) and you will be directed to the appropriate department.
If you are unhappy with the response you get, PALS (Patient Advice and Liaison Service) can help or advise. Their number is 01234 795814.
Friends and Family Test - please participate
This is a quick, simple and anonymous test indicating how satisfied you are with us. The results are published here on the website (Red buttons on the right to take the test and see the results).
Because the test is anonymous we do not know who has completed it. If you are happy with us, thank you! If you are unhappy with us, giving a bad review here will not help resolve your issues. In this case please make a complaint:
"Complaints should be addressed to Jennifer Gough, Practice & Business Manager, or any of the doctors. Alternatively, you may ask for an appointment with Jennifer Gough in order to discuss your concerns. She will explain the complaints procedure to you and will make sure that your concerns are dealt with promptly." (Extracted from our Complaints Procedure)
