Friends & Family Test Results

The NHS want you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service.

It is based on one simple question:

"How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?"

Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience – what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you’re helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.

Dr Dolan was very kind to and patient with my 2 year old son. She took the time to talk to him so that he felt comfortable with her and was then happy for her to examine him. She was also very understanding of the worry caused by children being unwell and the difficulties in getting them to take medicines. I was very happy with the care and treatment he received.
Posted on: 03/06/2024

I still do not like the fact that I can’t phone at any time of the day to book an appointment but I phoned at 8.00am and didn’t have to wait too long for it to be answered. The receptionist was very pleasant and professional. A doctor phoned me that morning. We discussed my symptoms and he recommended a course of treatment and I collected a prescription later that day.
Posted on: 31/05/2024

The care received is very good, but the downside is getting a face to face appointment, since covid there has been a completely new regime and I'm unclear why.. .

I was so impressed (and hugely grateful) to the staff at the Hereward practice. I was in a lot of pain and fearing the bank holiday I rang and asked if it would be possible to be checked for an infection. They said “yes of course” and as long as I could get a sample to them by 1:30 it would be checked, which I did, I received a call later on that afternoon and by 5:30pm that same day I had taken my first antibiotic. Really very grateful to everyone for helping me.

Posted on: 21/05/2024

The staff appear to be much more helpful than before,but the requirement to phone for an appointment at 8 a m,which I have found impossible to get,is frustrating when one requires a non urgent appointment.However,I was very pleased to see a doctor quickly when I had a high BP reading. The attention given to my wife,who is receiving palliative care has been first class.

Doctor Pears explained to me about my pain and advised me to contact him if the pain doesn’t go away.

Posted on: 21/05/2024

So so helpful and quick response
Posted on: 21/05/2024

I've never had a problem accessing services, could complain about timescales but that would only be whining really and could say considering how often I would visit the surgery it would have been better for all if the day after attending for a medicines review blood test (known about by the surgery for weeks) I didn't get an invite for a PSA blood test (which could have surely been done at the same time saving for all). But having said all that well done for everything else and many thanks for the PSA test invite.
Posted on: 09/05/2024

Call back from GP and repeat prescription issuedll in good time

As always, a prompt return telephone call and a very friendly lady doctor who listened and was most helpful.
Posted on: 30/04/2024

Very friendly & helpful staff members
Posted on: 30/04/2024

I never expected to get to see someone within 10 minutes of turning up. I had cut my finger at work and it hadn’t stopped bleeding I went in for some advice on how to dress it and instead I was able to be squeezed in and had it dressed properly and I really appreciate it. Thank you so much!
Posted on: 27/04/2024

The lady I spoke to on reception was kind and understanding and found me a date that suited my work schedule. She was polite and easy going and made the process a breeze. My nurse, I think her name was Claire, was so amazing. I was so anxious about my cervical cancer screening but she was calm, humorous and understanding. She really took all my anxiety away and made the whole process not as scary as I initially thought. I am a very anxious person so I can’t thank both these ladies enough for being so wonderful.
Posted on: 27/04/2024

Great staff that were really friendly and knowledgeable. I work normal hours so the evening clinics being available twice a week are a valuable option for me.
Posted on: 27/04/2024

Very good doctor, struggle to book appointment it in emergency situation they always call me back with a treatment plan.
Posted on: 26/04/2024

Nice to be seen face to face problem dealt with very well by Dr Ali
Posted on: 26/04/2024

From my phone call at 8 o’clock in the morning to a return phone call from the doctor and then a consultation with that doctor only took 2 1/2 hours which is very impressive. Thank you for your quick response. It’s very reassuring to know that the doctor surgery at the Hereward practice is run so efficiently. Many thanks
Posted on: 26/04/2024

Brilliant, fast, careful and professional.
Posted on: 26/04/2024

I always stick to one dr and find him to listen but only problem being there are hardly any appointments available for him or any others .but the practice dos try to fit you in quite quickly.
Posted on: 26/04/2024

Both practitioners in my appointment were very friendly & extremely knowledgeable & put me at my ease
Posted on: 23/04/2024

Dr Ayembillah is a fantastic Doctor, I saw him yesterday and he was very caring and friendly
Posted on: 23/04/2024

Their care for patients continually goes above and beyond my expectations. Considering the NHS is stretched so thin and has been for such a long time, the fact they are able to still show genuine care, take the time to really listen to patients and make follow up calls to ensure patient wellbeing is brilliant and does not go unnoticed. Dr Dolan is an asset to your team particularly. I believe she has the best bedside manner I have ever experienced anywhere and is extremely knowledgeable. Thank you all for your great work as always.
Posted on: 23/04/2024

Excellent service , very efficient, everyone very nice and professional.
Posted on: 23/04/2024

I was initially dealt with by one of the receptionist staff and to say that my issue was handled in a professional, empathetic and swift way is an understatement. I had a call back from a doctor with a couple of hours and further signposting was given immediately. Excellent service Lakeside
Posted on: 23/04/2024

Really good service. The online platform works well, timely response and great outcome, thank you!
Posted on: 23/04/2024

Called for consultation. Doctor called back quickly and arranged an appointment to examine complaint. Good service.
Posted on: 21/04/2024

From phoning to speaking to a Dr and getting a satisfactory consultation took less than 4 hours. Treated at all stages with respect. Thank you.
Posted on: 18/04/2024

Lady on reception was very helpful and nothing was to much bother, believe she was new.
Posted on: 18/04/2024

In the present climate that requires appointments to be set by a phone queue l did not have to wait long but this system is no where near as good as the NHS was during my early years.
Posted on: 18/04/2024

I always get good advice even if I don’t see a Doctor
Posted on: 17/04/2024

Not sure if this request for comment is about my call this morning or my appointment in 15th with Sue Handley, but both good despite a bit of a wait.
Posted on: 17/04/2024

Many thanks to Dr Taylor for seeing me so promptly. I have used the Hereward practice for 24 years and always found the Doctors and staff efficient and kind.

The lady who did my health check was extremely helpful and encouraging; she gave me a print out of my blood test results and some useful information about lifestyle changes I could make. I came away feeling empowered!
Posted on: 17/04/2024

I can't fault the practice in anyway. My experience has always been wonderful.
Posted on: 17/04/2024

I was feeling sick and wrote to the surgery through Anima, received a reply very quick and got same day afternoon appointment. The doctor was nice, explaining to me what I have to do until I will get the diagnose, prescribing some medication to relieve the pain meanwhile. The receptionist lady was helpful, advising where I can do the blood tests that will be more convenient.
Posted on: 17/04/2024

Quick, easy visit for blood test. Results on the NHS app super fast. Great.

Posted on: 13/04/2024

I attended the practice for my NHS health check. It was a positive and helpful experience. I left with a greater understanding of my current health and what I can do to remain fit and healthy as I approach my 70th birthday!

Dr. Pears is a legend. I came out of hospital last week after major surgery and developed an infection. Yesterday, I felt absolutely terrible. The hospital i had my surgery at told me to go and sit in A&E, which I could not have done as I felt so poorly. One phone call to Hereward and Dr. Pears rang back within half an hour, diagnosed what was wrong and issued medication that could be picked up immediately. Not only that, but he clearly explained why I was having the symptoms I was, putting mine, and my husband's mind at rest.

I have received excellent attention at this practise.

Excellent Doctor Who is taking care of me
Posted on: 05/04/2024

Receptionists are always very helpful and practitioners always do their best to see patients same day. The difficulties friends and family report about getting appointments at other local practices, seem to be managed so much better here. I am very happy with our care and feel relieved that we have access to such an accessible, understanding practice. Thank you!
Posted on: 05/04/2024

Quick response

Excellent response from the online form.

The nurses I saw yesterday and today were very kind, helpful and patient. Procedures were explained to me and they made me feel at ease.

The lady i spoke to i think her name was Malikje, about my problem was very understanding,explained everthing very well.Rassuring concerned,listenened to my problems.She went about her work very professionally.
Posted on: 04/04/2024

Over the last 3 years since I lost my wife and now having to look after myself since then on all the appointments I have have been brilliant . Most times seen a doctor on the same day. Friendly staff. Very helpful. The system you use now is better. By miles. I don’t understand why some people criticise Lakeside. I have no problem with the service
Posted on: 04/04/2024

I filled in the Anima form with my symptoms in the evening and next day was contacted by a GP, they dealt with my problems fast and efficiently, I would recommend this service 100%
Posted on: 04/04/2024

Probably typical of a UK GP practice in 2024. The systems and the processes seem set to reduce/ prevent/restrict 121 time with the medical team. If and when you persist, medical team, GPs and Pharmacists are helpful, empathetic and knowledgeable...... but it really is very hard work to get that 121 time!
Posted on: 04/04/2024

Dr Dolan is wonderful. She's competent and compassionate and my daughter liked her very much.
Posted on: 04/04/2024

I had two appointments, one for an ECG this week and one for a blood test next week. The HCA kindly combined them and did both procedures yesterday which saves me coming back again and frees up another appointment. Very caring and considerate
Posted on: 04/04/2024

To long await on the phone and getting an appointment for a blood test
Posted on: 04/04/2024

Getting an appointment was the hardest part of this experience, Anima was out of action one day due to all appointments being taken. I called at 8am the next day, after 30 mins on hold I got offered a telephone consultation with the Physiotherapist for the following week. Once I had spoken to the Physio I was extremely pleased with the service received - following the phone call consultation I was seen the following day in clinic. My shoulder pain was diagnosed and a treatment plan put in place.

Almost impossible to see a doctor in person
Posted on: 21/03/2024

Telephone consult with Dr Ali, gave really good advice and provided a solution.
Posted on: 20/03/2024

Nurse was very caring. No information was previously given as to what and what not to do before the tests, possibly resulting in suspect results being obtained, as before.
Posted on: 20/03/2024

Excellent healthcare thank you
Posted on: 20/03/2024

Staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly.

Great care for 4 year old child, always happy to see her to check her and listen to concerns.
Posted on: 19/03/2024

However, I do feel that telephone consultations aren’t the best as I feel that face to face offers a much better environment in which to discuss problems especially personal topics. Also, I feel hurried when talking on the phone and feel I can’t convey certain things when having a telephone call.

Asthma review was carried out extremely professionally and was informative and friendly.

My issues were immediatly addressed very satisfactory.
Posted on: 19/03/2024

I had to seek advice about the poor state of my son who complained about flu like simptoms along with chest and back pain. I was called back by Dr. Faisal and, although I imagine they're pretty busy, he offered us an appointment within the hour. It turned out to be a chest infection so I am really glad that we've been seen on such short notice. Dr. Faisal was very friendly and gave us all the information about the condition and the treatment. Thank you
Posted on: 18/03/2024

The doctor was thorough and did not delay in getting a referral to deal with any potential problems.
Posted on: 18/03/2024

It would be helpful if you could actually ring at the time given for telephone appointments, rather than 20 minutes or an hour early.
Posted on: 17/03/2024

The doctors are better than the other doctors in the town when we contact though the phone
Posted on: 16/03/2024

I experienced an unexpected health problem. As a result I called the Medical Centre. A telephone consultation with a doctor resulted in a thorough in- person consultation and a hospital appointment the following morning. I couldn't have expected more from the service.
Posted on: 15/03/2024

Doctor always has time for me very understanding and caring.
Posted on: 15/03/2024

Brilliant response on Monday. I used the Anima app and it delivered exactly what it should. A sensible online discussion which led to a face to face appointment and blood tests following day. I cannot fault this. Thankyou
Posted on: 15/03/2024

I am happy with the care i received
Posted on: 14/03/2024

I have found that my treatment at Hereward has been second to none. I have always received good care and attention
Posted on: 14/03/2024

I always find everyone at the practice professional, respectful and helpful. It’s easy to get through to the practice on the telephone or to get a quick answer using the online messaging service. All of the doctors have treated me with care and consideration.

Staff were extremely helpful. Medical staff put my mind at rest

Great service sorted my boy out with his nose bleeds
Posted on: 14/03/2024

I normally get prompt responses via the online system, whether that be from a nurse practioner, or a doctor...both are good (Doctrin preferred over the new Anima system...my opinion) The vaccination programes are alway well organised run smoothly.
Posted on: 14/03/2024

I have suggested to my daughter who lives in Langtoft to move from her Market Deeping practice to Hereward. All the doctors l have dealt with have been excellent.
Posted on: 14/03/2024

Can't really fault them
Posted on: 14/03/2024

When it is necessary I can usually speak to a doctor. There are sometimes occasions when a face to face consultation would be more helpful
Posted on: 13/03/2024

I was seen by a lovely nurse (sister) following a hip replacement op She was kind and reassuring

Very helpful receptionist quick response from GP
Posted on: 06/03/2024

Nurse was helpful, friendly and pragmatic. Less convinced by appointments procedure. Phone didn't work and only an in-person visit secured the appointment mandated by the hospital from which I had just been released. If I was single this would not have been possible.
Posted on: 06/03/2024

Dr Ali responded very quickly to me, listened to my concerns, and treated me with empathy and respect. Thank you.

Kind doctor and efficient service.
Posted on: 29/02/2024

I would rather have the option of seeing a clinician instead of just a telephone consultation. I feel I would have been more reassured and had a better service if I was seen face to face. A telephone consultation is great for annual reviews and updates, however for someone who doesnt use the doctors very often, I would want to see a clinician for most accute issues.
Posted on: 29/02/2024

Phoned for a health check, had no problrm getting through, receptionist was polite, got both appointments, did not have to wait long at both appointments

Service provided was very good, had a telephone consultation on the day requested and the doctor realised he needed sight of the issue saw me immediately. Diagnosis given and prescribed medication.
Posted on: 29/02/2024

The standard of care is v good if you can eventually obtain access to it through the admin process. In general public opinion regarding having to call the surgery at 08.00am to get a call back consultation appointment with a healthcare professional is considered as totally unacceptable. As very often all their appointments for the day have been taken.So when can it be changed?
Posted on: 29/02/2024

I always feel I am listened to & cared about.

Dr Sandra Rodrigues is a real asset to the practice and I highly recommend her.
Posted on: 21/02/2024

Great service from the Doctors and staff. Very helpful and very willing to help you with your medical issues. Call backs are very swift and the calls are not rushed they take the time to help me. I think this practice is outstanding and I am very happy with the treatment provided. The practice has various online resources on their own website which is amazing and an app so you can request medical appointments and any other treatment you require with medication. This is certainly a GP practice that is very equipped and has updated resources for everyone to use.
Posted on: 21/02/2024

Once again, I can only commend the care, help and friendly response that I received from you all.
Posted on: 21/02/2024

Would be better if you could get a face to face appointment. I’ve not seen a doctor since before covid. Only phone calls.

The receptionist was very friendly, understanding and helpful. A doctor called me back within 10 minutes and also offered me an appointment at the practice to reassure me about my daughter. I was given an appointment 40 minutes later. In arrival, we sat in the waiting room for less than 5 minutes. the doctor was thorough and ensured he answered any questions I had. I couldn’t have asked for anymore; other recent experiences have also been the same.

Posted on: 16/02/2024

Absolutely amazing , always so quick and responsive on here. Really can't fault
Posted on: 16/02/2024

Initial response was excellent. I phoned your surgery as I was coughing blood. The receptionist was excellent and within a few minutes the emergency doctor phoned and sent me to Stamford for a chest X-Ray. To have had an X-Ray within an hour of my initial call is excellent. Fortunately I received a text on Monday saying that the X-Rays were fine but for me to contact you for a follow up appointment. This is when it became difficult. I phoned up to make an appointment for later in the week but was advised that I couldn’t do this and would have to phone up at 8.00 in the morning to make an appointment for that day. I am driving to work at that time. I appreciate that your reason for this policy is due to the number of wasted appointments with people not turning up but penalise these people. Finally at all times your staff were professional, polite and helpful.

Thank you so much to the doctor we saw today, diagnosed my son with multiple infections and treated his croup. Spent a lot of time checking him, very friendly and i feel like my son will finally get better now. Thank you so much!
Posted on: 09/02/2024

I logged on to the new site to see what it was like and to see what information was available. I noticed that it was possible to arrange an appointment and on checking there was just one slot available and it was for the next day so I arranged the appointment and true to your word the doctor rang very close to the appointed time. In view of that I cannot fault the arrangements, however what did surprise me was that this was the only appointment listed for the next 16weeks according to the site.
Posted on: 09/02/2024

Quick response - all areas covered and explained, medication detailed and passed to pharmacy quickly.

Posted on: 06/02/2024

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Booking my appointment was easy. The nurse who performed the smear test was lovely, she put me at ease immediately and was very clear in her information at every stage and about what would happen afterwards. Something I was not particularly looking forward to was made a very comfortable experience.
Posted on: 06/02/2024

I can't fault the care I receive from my Surgery. The other day I needed to speak to a Doctor, the Receptionist was amazing. And the Doctor rang me back within 15 minutes. Totally Brilliant.
Posted on: 06/02/2024

Doctors are very polite, Very helpful and do there best to get you the care you need. Many ways to access the surgery through internet apps and the website for the practice. I think the service is brilliant, Very easy to register at the practice and to get repeat prescriptions setup. I’m very impressed with my care that I’ve received from the doctors at the surgery. Thank you so much for helping me and my health conditions.
Posted on: 06/02/2024

Thank you to the practice for accommodating a very last minute request to see my son. I was concerned that my son who had been unwell for a few days developed a mild rash which I was worried about. Dr Pears agreed to see us outside of practice hours and was able to reassure us. I can only thank you for the service received.

Was brilliant service and quick getting appointment
Posted on: 02/02/2024

I spoke with a lovely lady doctor (cannot remember her name) who was so kind and listened to my concerns without making me feel I was taking up too much of her time. Cannot praise the surgery, receiptionists and most importantly, the doctors, enough.
Posted on: 02/02/2024

The lady I saw was extremely helpful, went in depth to ensure that all my worries were dealt with and that any medical issue I had could be treated as well as possible, taking clear consideration of my pregnancy into account to ensure the best treatment for myself whilst not affecting my baby. She was fabulous, knowledgeable and a credit to your team.
Posted on: 02/02/2024

Telephone consultation, as face to face wasn’t necessary. This was with a Dr with an interest in women’s health, which is what I requested. I asked all my planned questions, we had a discussion about this, given the link for an app and a website for further reading before I could decide on how I would like to proceed. Also given an appointment on this call to see the practice nurse and a referral to book for an USS. I was listened to and thanked the Dr at the time for this as I felt anxious to discuss my symptoms
Posted on: 02/02/2024

Excellent service on the day doctor first class in get me an urgent hospital appointment

Couldnt wish for better treatment.
Posted on: 02/02/2024

Easy to access appointments online or by phone. All clinicians I have spoken to are understanding and patient focussed. We always receive excellent care.
Posted on: 02/02/2024

Care excellent . Parking diabolical, completely insufficient for a practice with so much footfall and patients. This nonsense of offloading booking etc to sun contractors is ridiculous, to my knowledge you have outsourced this to at least four companies in the last 10 years. Far too beaucratic difficult to even subscribe let alone use for seniors which are your overwhelming customers . You are good at the subsidiary medical services the gov pay you for ie vacs etc but otherwise from the just about everyone I speak to you are failing. Too much spin not enough core function. Sorry but facts are facts. I guess this one will not be published! 11
Posted on: 02/02/2024

Very professional staff and informative . Thank you
Posted on: 02/02/2024

There is nothing that needs to be improved . From the friendly competent and helpful reception staff to the Medical staff. And doctors everything is. The best service anyone could ask for . We are so lucky to be patients at this surgery
Posted on: 01/02/2024

Have never had any problems. Everyone very kind and helpful.
Posted on: 27/01/2024

May be if the GP’s see patients instead of a phone call or sending them straight to A&E the NHS service wouldn’t be in such a mess. Once apon a time you couldn’t get a prescription via phone because the doctor needed to see a patient, now it’s just write a prescription from a conversation on the phone. Only way you get into the surgery is via vaccination programs which they get paid extra for! But remember don’t ask them anything about your health whilst they give you the vaccine, that would need any other phone call !
Posted on: 20/01/2024

It was an arranged telephone call which proceeded as planning and at the time arranged
Posted on: 19/01/2024

Quick, efficient service by reception staff and prompt, thorough advice from a doctor. All in a very timely manner and with ease.

I went in to have my implant taken out. Something that has scared me no end, when I’ve had done in the past. The nurses who did the procedure were so lovely, reassuring and kind. Really making the whole process easier and less nerve racking.We are so lucky to have the NHS and the wonderful people who work there.
Posted on: 16/01/2024

Posted on: 16/01/2024

I was able to book a telephone consultation and had a face t face appointment later same day. I did however have to lose time at work as unable to make appointment for my day off
Posted on: 13/01/2024

The experience was straightforward and rewarding. I did get to speak to a GP, although on the phone and hopefully on the way to get the issue resolved.
Posted on: 12/01/2024

Usually fast and efficient, lovely staff not really had any problems

Posted on: 06/01/2024

My experience has been 100% for efficiency, effectiveness, communication and friendliness.
Posted on: 06/01/2024

The treatment and attention i have received has been tremendous. Always polite when engaging with staff and helpful with phone queries. Unfortunately, when referred the NHS and the waiting list it has for treatment do not compare to the empathy received by the doctors at lakeside. Their hands are tied by the timescales for that treatment. All in all, an excellent doctors, which i have already recommended to friends moving to Bourne.
Posted on: 06/01/2024

The staff are so caring
Posted on: 05/01/2024

The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The doctor called back in the afternoon as promised in the morning phone call conversation. I was offered an appointment for my daughter the same afternoon. On arrival at the surgery, we only waited for 5 minutes before seeing the doctor. She was very pleasant, made conversation with both myself & my daughter & generally showed an interest in my daughter’s health. She was also very reassuring that, as parents, we have provided our daughter with the correct treatment.
Posted on: 05/01/2024

I am very impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff.
Posted on: 05/01/2024

Ringing just after eight in the morning Doctor Grigson rang me after nine I went into the surgery for examination and she ordered blood tests. Dr Grigson rang me back early evening and told me to go straight to hospital where I was diagnosed with a kidney stone causing a blockage which was treated with a stent the next day, so a very good experience

Posted on: 27/12/2023

In my opinion the gp was very dismissive and was not listening to me completely during my appointment
Posted on: 27/12/2023

Always pleasant and friendly service
Posted on: 27/12/2023

It was very easy to book my blood test. I did ring rather than book online as my internet was playing up. The reception staff were lovely and I was able to get a quick appointment. The blood test was done quickly and the phlebotomist was skilled and friendly.
Posted on: 27/12/2023

I honestly could not have asked for better treatment. The dr was kind, caring and thoroughly explained everything to me. I cried afterwards as it’s just so nice to be treated with such care and respect. Thank you
Posted on: 27/12/2023

Very hard to get an appointment, very rare to get in the practice it's usually done by phone, Most of the staff i have come in to contact with are polite but useless. Can never see the same doctor twice and they don't seem to know how to read a case file before making a call. impersonal, uninterested. 3-4 years I've been trying to get pain medication that works, I'm in pain every day and it seems that I'm going to be for the rest of my life. I don't think anyone should be left in pain this long, Wouldn't stand for it being done to an animal

Posted on: 19/12/2023

From the receptionist to the doctor my experience was fantastic, you hear a lot of bad stories from patients from other practices that cannot get an appointment very quickly if at all, but our practice has got it just right, carry on doing what you are doing you have it just right..Well done too you all
Posted on: 19/12/2023

Once you understand how their system works it’s fine. I requested a GP telephone consultation, my GP phoned. Explained my symptoms Which were very painful and restricted me immensely. My GP prescribed medication immediately and it was available at the Dispensary immediately. By evening I could feel my symptoms wane. The first straight sleep I’ve had in ages. Excellent consultation, medication and reassurance from my GP. I could not see how anything could improve, outstanding treatment. So very grateful.
Posted on: 19/12/2023

Very prompt at dealing with my problem. The receptionist answered straight away and was very helpful and I had a call back from the doctor the same day.

I attended for my 2nd shingles injection. To start with it was difficult to find an appointment on the required date, but the receptionist persisted and got me an appointment.

Doctrin asks many questions repeatedly every time i need to ask for medical help, most should be on my medical. Repeatedly asking so many questions takes time and is a barrier tousing Doctrin.

I have always found the staff at Hereward Practise to be helpful, kind and professional. During my period of being very unwell last year, i was treated with nothing but kindness and understanding and referred for tests and treatments in the wider team of the NHS at various hospitals.

Posted on: 31/10/2023

Dr Faisal was able to diagnose, prescribe and reassure me about mystery itchy rash all over my body that I had had for 4 weeks. Told it was an allergy rash so stopped various meds and foods but nothing had helped. My immune system had produced this rash, apparently, because of stress of insomnia and pain caused by so much diagnosed wrong in my lower back. Dr Faisal assured me the rash will eventually go with strong steroid cream and antihistamines. I came away walking on air just to know what it was at last and it will eventually go.
Posted on: 31/10/2023

Fantastic result. Dr Pears agreed to see me to assess the spot on my cheekbone that afternoon and treated it then and there. There is very little evidence of the treatment and no discomfort. He has a wonderful bedside manner.

Posted on: 27/10/2023

I found the process of getting an appointment straight forward. I like the fact the doctor rings you up to discuss your issue and then decides if you need a face to face appointment or not as sometimes an actual appointment isnt needed which saves both the patient and doctor's time.
Posted on: 27/10/2023

I received a call from Dr Noble within a couple of hours of my call with your receptionist. Dr Noble diagnosed my issue quite quickly after a short discussion and I was provided with the remedy. I have been to the chemist and purchased the recommended decongestion spray which works and has reduced my congestion in a short space of time. I must say that i havehad excellent support from you, my GP Practice,and am grateful for the care that i receive. Thankyou

We have had a very good experience with all members of staff we have had contact with. The receptionists and team in the dispensary have always been very friendly and helpful. Dr Grigson has also been particularly helpful . All in all a very different and pleasant experience compared to where we were previously registered.

Cannot praise this Hereward Practice in Exeter Street, Bourne, Lincs,highly enough. Always cheerful helpful Receptionists. Appointments always kept on time. Efficient Nurses and Doctors available when asked for their advice/treatment. My Doc always phoned me back same day if a request/enquiry was made earlier in the day. Dispensary very efficient and the delivery each time to my home (a distance of 5 miles) when due for a repeat prescription - has been especially appreciated. Covid/flu jab appointment today was on time, swift with records kept up straight on arrival. Never felt a thing! Courteous Doc who greeted me - and afterwards saw me to the outer door which was much appreciated.

A lovely Practice. Everyone is very polite, kind and caring. I can book appointments online very easily and I always get such a professional response when I’m speaking to the receptionist, Dr or nurse. Thank you for all that you do x
Posted on: 18/09/2023

I enjoy using Doctrin, as i find it simpler and more direct than phoning and waiting for an appointment.
Posted on: 17/09/2023

Quick phone call doctor phoned on time SHAME can’t see doctor face to face
Posted on: 17/09/2023

It would be nice to get a face to face appointment sometimes and not just a phonecall
Posted on: 16/09/2023

Really felt valued this time from the advice given by the receptionist to the ‘over the phone consultion’ . I was asked which Doctor I would prefer,as they were not available I largely happily go with any doctor on the practice, after all they all access the same record of information. When the doctor phoned she was extremely pleasant and easy to talk to, all my questions were answered fully and I at no time felt I was being rushed - super experience (if a doctors appointment can ever be described as such). Thank you very much.
Posted on: 16/09/2023

Was phoned back at time i asked and was seen half hour later. Dr Rodrigues was excellent
Posted on: 15/09/2023

I have always received excellent service from the Hereward Practice.
Posted on: 15/09/2023

Interview was polite and very professional. My only misgiving is that my GP was quite obviously on a strict time limit. This is not in anyway a criticism as I am well aware of the pressure the NHS is under.

I was in a queue of 9 people at 8.15am. When I eventually got to speak to the receptionist, all the ring back appointments had been taken She was very helpful when I told her that I had tried on several occasions with the same answer. It seems to be the ‘Norm’ nowadays!!! The receptionist very kindly got the Practice nurse to ring me back in the afternoon. She then let me have specimen bottles to be sent off to the Lab. Also may I add that the car park was full but with ONLY 1 person was in the Waiting room!!!

Posted on: 06/09/2023

I used the Doctrin system for an online consultation. The response was very quick, an appointment was offered for the same day and the NP sought a second opinion from the duty doctor who took my concerns seriously and discussed treatment. I cannot fault this service. Thank you very much.

I moved to Bourne just over a year ago when I registered with Hereward Practice. I have been completely blown away by the service and care that I have received throughout the whole team! The receptionists are approachable, kind and efficient. Doctors actively listen and treat with empathy in a contemporaneous manner, the pharmacists have gone above and beyond to help me with repeat medications when my husband was unexpectedly admitted to Leicester Royal Infirmary and the practice nurses are all professional, approachable and reassuring

As always I felt Dr Taylor understood the difficulties I am experiencing ,my heath situation is complicated but she listened patiently.I felt she wanted to help me,which is worth a lot.
Posted on: 27/07/2023

The actual care provided is excellent but the means of making arrangements remotely is weak. In my case, I received a letter to arrange a phone consultation with a doctor. I have a busy job so can’t wait for ages for my call to be answered. Eventually I got through, was told no more phone consultations were available. I asked for a phone consultation tomorrow but was simply told ‘phone back at 8 o’clock tomorrow morning’ . I’m in a meeting then so no doubt when I do manage to phone and get through, they’re won’t be any consultations left and I’ll be asked again to call back the following day and the saga will repeat itself.
Posted on: 25/07/2023

Okay for a long arm NHS
Posted on: 25/07/2023

GPs now need to get back to face to face appointments. Every time i have come into the surgery ,there has only been at most 4 or 5 people waiting to be seen.

Great service!

Yesterday (Thursday) about 11.30 i asked reception for a doctors appointment, doctor rang me about 2pm and asked me to see him at 3pm, and i have my prescription today, i was pleased it was quick service, and it was a very pleasant doctor that saw me.

I would like to say how warm and welcoming Tracey was on your reception desk this morning. She was so helpful to the patient in front of me. Tracey was also extremely helpful in booking a follow-up appointment with the diabetic nurse for me. She was jolly and such a pleasant lady. I hope you can pass this on to her and let her know what a great ambassador she is for your practice.
