Gladstone Medical Centre Open day on 15th February 2018
We would like to thank all our new and existing patients who attended the Open Day Event on 15th February 2018 , conducted by the Practice but well supported by the Patient Participation Group (PPG) Members.
The Open Day Event provided the Practice to discuss the services available for our patients and answer any queries they may have. The doctors and management staff were available throughout the event.
We refer our practice as a Learning Practice and an Open Day event is one of the most important Patient Engagement Event. The event has helped us in getting more familiar with our patients, informing them regarding our services, improvements made to the practice and listening to patients having queries or constructive feedback to help improve the way surgery is providing them service.We greatly appreciate time of our PPG members, helping us in planning, making the event popular among our patients and thus making the event successful for the practice and the patients.
We had the opportunity to provide information regarding our services to our patients through Newsletters and Leaflets. The event has helped us getting more feedback through surveys, which will help us in rating our services and highlight areas of improvement.
The atmosphere was lively and engaging and we have received a lot of positive comments from attendees of the open day. Refreshments were available throughout the event and there was a lucky prize draw. The winners were contacted for their prizes.
We would like to thank everyone who attended and their encouraging feedback. We will continue to hold such events in the future.
