The best practice I have ever encountered

I have been visiting GP surgeries for 34 years. As a patient and for work, from London to everywhere in the SW. When I signed on at the Pembroke Rd Surgery it was with no more enthusiasm as I have done in the past. What surprised me was the professionalism of the Receptionists, and their nice personalities.

The Nurses for my medication review, bloods and asthma were refreshingly interested, engaging, knowledgable and didn't treat me like just another patient.

When I had the misfortune to need a GP for a treatment that was new to me, I was listened too, reassured, helped and checked up on after. I cannot recommend this practice enough, very simply, 9.5/10. The surgery only missed out on a 10 as it doesn't have enough bike parking spaces.

Thank you PRS and all the staff.

Overall excellence

My husband is approaching 90 and has multiple health problems. The surgery is as good as one could possibly expect given the pressures on the NHS. I have always been able to get an appointment, though not always immediately, and on more than one occasion a doctor has called in to the house to see my husband after surgery.

There are undoubtedly problems in the liaison between the surgery and the hospital(s), but these probably mirror those in every other surgery. That said, links with local pharmacies are very good indeed.

My only suggestion would be to offer patients an annual health check. You can request one, but it's easy to forget.

I do agree with other comments about unsatisfactory online provision, particularly in booking appointments. Some investment here would be welcome.

Excellent service - amazing nurses


- Had to have my MMR jab at Pembroke Road surgery and they were really responsive and helpful about it

- While having my MMR jab, I was asked detailed questions - I mentioned a planned holiday - I was advised to have a travel appointment and see if I need any vaccinations before I travel. I attended the appointment and the nurse was very patient, detailed and friendly. Not to mention that I didn't even feel a sting. Thank you for being great!

Excellence in medicine, administration and compassion

I am a local GP and today I advised my elderly father to be seen, as he had developed a skin cancer on his neck. By 10 am he had been seen in person and later that morning was contacted by the surgery re an appointment at a local hospital.
This is general practice as it should be.
Other members of my extended family attend the surgery and all have spoken so very highly of the doctors and receptionists. They show compassion as well as using modern diagnostic aids eg dermoscopy
I have nothing but praise for this team, especially in setting of huge pressures on the nhs
