Feedback

The opinions of our users are really important to us, which is why we ask for feedback from every patient via our family & friends token scoring system. Written feedback forms are also collected, which allow us to reflect on issues raised and make changes to improve the quality of the service based on these. We also display a ‘You Said’ and ‘We Did’ information poster in the waiting room, which we change monthly to keep clients updated with any changes and developments. Good communication is paramount to the success of our service and we offer our patients confidentiality and adhere to safe working practice policies, which include confidentiality, consent, safeguarding and chaperoning and relevant information is displayed in the waiting area.

More about our service and who will treat you

The Services ‘model of care’ aims to make best use of the appropriately trained staff by facilitating sharing of clinical knowledge and expertise whilst still maintaining specialist care for the individual speciality. All clinical staff are dual trained in sexual health and family planning and have the necessary skills and expertise to work flexibly within the services’ main site and community venues. Services are focused on meeting the sexual health and contraception needs of the local community to reduce local rates of unwanted teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection rates, addressing the Teenage Pregnancy Strategy (Social Exclusion Strategy, 1999) and the Sexual Health and HIV Strategy (DH, 2001). Local Chlamydia screening and marketing events are also held throughout the year.
