Welcome to Milborne Port Surgery
We now operate a telephone triage system. Please phone us on the day you wish to be contacted by a GP who will try to phone you back within a specified 2 hour window. If you want a specific GP you will need to phone on the day that they are working - When is my GP available? . If your GP is not available a colleague will be available to cover.
You can also request contact through AskmyGP which will send us an electronic message which we can then pass on to the GP. To use the AskmyGP system click on the logo below.

Come and join us to make new friends, encourage each other and have an opportunity to discover new walks in the area.
All you need is comfortable footwear shoes or trainers. Thin layers of clothing that can be added or removed depending on the weather conditions and some water.
Our Next Health Walk is Monday, meeting here at Milborne Port Surgery for 2pm.
There is no cost involved.

Self Check in on arrival
If at all possible please could patients try to use the self check-in screens in the reception area. This not only allows you to be seen quickly but cuts down on unnecessary queues at the reception desk. Using it is very easy and only requires you to answer 3 simple questions about yourself. If you are more than 10 minutes early or ten minutes late then you will be asked to report to reception
We use the e-referral system which provides you with a choice of location for your treatment where a choice is available.

NHS Family and Friends Test
You, the patient, are at the heart of everything that we do, and we really want to understand your overall impression of the service you receive. So, we are asking this question,
How likely is it that you would recommend our services to friends and family?
From 1st December 2014 it is a contractual requirement that all GP practices undertake the NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT). We here at Milborne Port Surgery are implementing it as of 1st October. The FFT is anonymous.
The Friends and Family Test is a feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS Services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience that can be used to improve services.
It is not a traditional survey, it is a continuous feedback loop between patients and practices.
The primary aims of the FFT are to:
· Gather useful feedback from people who use services that can be fed directly to staff that provide their care, in a simple format, in near real time
· Identify areas where improvements can be made so practical action can be taken
· Inform current and prospective patients about the experiences of those who use the practice services
Please click here to complete form and either return by hand, post or email to email@example.com
Here are our FFT feedback results so far. Friends and family feedback graph, April 16 - March 17
