Background to the new contracts
The new three-year contract follows a period of engagement with patients. Patient participation assisted us in developing a description of what we wanted and quality expectations for the new contract. A thorough evaluation and selection process followed. The links below detail the key patient engagement activities and findings.
- Leaflet shared with patients in October 2015 about the process to procure new contracts and inviting their feedback
- Copies of Our vision for developing GP primary care services in your area were given to patients at the surgery and shared online.
- 115 patients and members of the public gave their views on the two surgeries. Their views were collected via online and paper surveys, and also via Healthwatch volunteers present at each surgery during the engagement period.
- This page summarises patient feedback and includes a link to the patient engagement report.
