Coronavirus Update Posted on 15th May 2020

Please see new Information for Diabetics and Coronavirus





























Empowering people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when they need to, gives people greater control of their own health and encourages healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term. See advice resource bottom of right hand column.

In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients, such as those with comorbidities, the very young and elderly, managing long-term conditions and providing new services.

Oriel Surgery Training Practice


Oriel Surgery has been accredited as a training practice, and from early August 2015 we will be hosting qualified doctors intending to become GP’s. Becoming a training practice means that we have been recognised for achieving higher standards of patient care – something that we earnestly value and treasure.


The GP Trainee is a fully qualified doctor who already has experience of hospital medicine and will gain invaluable experience by being based within the practice.


Please do not hesitate to speak to the GP or staff member about this new development






Cancelling your Appointment

 If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone the surgery as early as possible to cancel your appointment.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

Test Results

The Practice has an electronic link to the laboratory at the local Hospital.

To receive test results, please contact the Practice between the hours of 11-12pm and 3-4 pm. The receptionist will be happy to inform you of the test results reported by the doctor.

For reasons of confidentiality, information will not be given to another person unless prior permission has been given.

Practice Survey Reporting

Oriel Surgery

Summary Report of Patient Surveys – PE001 and Patient Exit Survey

 We carried out a patient exit survey in February where over 2 weeks we got 75 patients to fill in the surveys when they attended the GP for a consultation. We tasked one particular receptionist to deal with the selection of these surveys under the guidance that she surveyed a diverse random sample of patients of differing age, sex, ability and ethnicity. She is confident that she achieved this fairly.

 We carried an additional survey of 40 questionnaires on top of the Demand Management Exit Survey where we targeted patients who had come into the practice to collect a sick line, a prescription or to make an appointment who had not necessarily had a face to face consultation with a Health Care Professional. We were mindful to include a number of home visits in this sample group and the GP’s helped us with this part of the survey.

 The results of this survey were as follows

 On the question “Would you recommend your GP Practice to someone who has just moved into your local area?”, the results were as follows out of 40


  1. Extremely Likely                       35 (87.5%)
  2. Likely                                        3 (7.5%)
  3. Neither Likely or unlikely             
  4. Unlikely                                     1 (2.5%)
  5. Extremely unlikely
  6. Don’t know                                1 (2.5%)




We have discussed these results at a practice meeting and we are very pleased that such a high proportion of our patients are very happy with the service we provide and this was also demonstrated in our 75 patient Exit Survey.(See below)


On the same question “Would you recommend your GP Practice to someone who has just moved into your local area?”, the results were as follows out of 75


  1. Extremely Likely                       54 (72%)
  2. Likely                                      14 (18.67%)
  3. Neither Likely or unlikely              5 (6.67%
  4. Unlikely                                      1 (1.33%)
  5. Extremely unlikely                       0
  6. Don’t know                                1 (1.33%)





Some of the comments are demonstrated in the table below and again we are delighted that our patients appreciate the service we provide.

Personal Mistreatment


In total between the 2 surveys we questioned 115 patients. We have a list size on our lastest PCAS baseline of 5684.

We have shared this information on our Patient information boards in both waiting areas and we are planning to include this in our new Spring Newsletter that we will be displaying in reception with copies to take away. This information has also been uploaded onto our practice website where we hope that our patients will read the positive response to our surveys this year.
