Surveys - feel free to participate and share your views
Patient Online is an NHS England programme designed to support GP Practices to offer and promote online services to patients, including access to records, online appointment booking and online repeat prescriptions.
Patient Online have created 2 surveys, for those aged 18 years and older, to collect information so that NHS England can get a better view about how patients feels about booking and cancelling appointments, ordering repeat prescriptions and viewing their medical records online.
The survey will take less than 5 minutes to complete and your responses are anonymous and will remain confidential.

Have your say on health, care and wellbeing in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Cornwall Council and NHS Kernow are seeking the views of people across Cornwall to help shape future health and social care provision and improve the wellbeing of our residents.
The way we commission and provide health and social care services was created more than 60 years ago and need redesigning. The Government has offered Cornwall more powers as part of the ‘Deal for Cornwall’, and as part of that we have been asked to put forward a new plan to meet the health and social care needs of Cornwall residents today and in the future.
Challenges facing us include rising costs because of increased demand for services as people live longer with more complex conditions. There are reducing levels of funding for some areas of health and social care. We also have some of the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the UK.
Given the financial challenges and the pressures on our health and social care system, we must better prepare our services for the future using the resources available in the best way possible.
Please let us know your health and social care priorities, which we will use to help assess the options to deliver improved services.
The closing date for responses is 14 March 2016
Prescription charges will increase from 1st April 2015. A single prescription item will cost £8.05.
FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST
From the 1st December 2014 all GP practices are required to ask patients the Friends & Family test questions that will be monitored by NHS England on a monthly basis. The two questions are as follows:
How likely are you to recommend our GP Surgery to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?
Can you tell us why you gave that response?
Please let us know how we are doing and answer these questions by clicking on the 'Friends & Family Survey' tab at the right of the page.
