Friends and Family Test

We are encouraging our patients to give their views about how the practice is doing. NHS Midlands and East want you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service. Please follow this link here and once completed return to the GP Practice


If you wish to feedback a compliment with regards to the surgery/the service you have received; please feel free to write to the practice or by calling us.


Patient feedback is important to us as it helps us to improve the service we provide to patients. We take patient complaints seriously and will attempt to address your concerns to your satisfaction.

Please click here to find a copy of our complaints procedure, complaints leaflet or our easy read complaints leaflet can be viewed here.

If you have a complaint or a concern about the service you have received from the doctors or any of the staff working in this practice then we would like to know about this. In the first instance we encourage you to contact our Practice Manager Claire Glover to discuss this further. If you are complaining on behalf of someone else, the practice needs to know that you have their permission to do so.

How do I complain to someone Independent?

GP Practices would prefer to have the opportunity to answer complaints ourselves in the first instance. However, you may pass your complaint directly to:

Telephone: 0115 8839570 or

By post: Patient Experience Team, Civic Centre, Arnot Hill Park, Nottingham Road, Arnold, Nottingham, NG5 6LU

Is there a time limit?

A complaint must be made within 12 months of the date of the incident that caused the problem or the date of discovering the problem.
