Dr Blacklay's Retirement

After 36 years dedicated to working at the Rowans Surgery, Dr Harriet Blacklay retired on 30th December 2014.

All at the Rowans wish her a long, happy and healthy retirement. She will be greatly missed by her work colleagues and patients alike.


Friends and Family Test

From 1st December 2014, it is a contractual requirement that all GP practices implement the NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT)

The FFT is a continuous 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.

"We would like you to think about your recent experiences of our service. How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?"

In order to collect your anonymous response to this question and to submit to NHS England, we are using iwantgreatcare.org to collect our patient responses. Please click here or on the logo to be taken to their website. The website will open in a new window.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback.
