(SPIRE) Scottish Primary Care Information Resource 

NHSScotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records

From May 2017 we will improve the way we use information from GP patient records. These changes will help to plan and improve health and care services in Scotland.

SPIRE (Scottish Primary Care Information Resource) is a service that has been developed to help GPs, the NHS in Scotland and researchers to learn from information held at GP practices.

Patient Communication, Suggestions And Complaints

good_ratingsWe welcome feedback on the services we provide. There is a suggestion box for feedback forms at the ground floor and basement exits. Treble ‘C’ forms (Compliments, Comments and Complaints) allow you to tell us what you feel about the services provided. Alternatively you may wish to speak to a member of staff or our Practice Manager.

Our aim is to offer the highest quality of service. However, we recognise that at times things may not always go according to plan. If you have any worries or complaints about the service that you have received from the practice, we will be pleased to discuss the matter with you.

If you feel you cannot approach your doctor, please ask to speak with one of the other partners or the Practice Manager.

We would like to work with you to resolve issues raised. If, however, you require independent help NHS Grampian Feedback Service Helpline can be contacted on 0845 3376338. In addition, the Citizens Advice Bureau is available to assist patients to write a letter of complaint.

Help us to help you. We like to keep you up-to-date with developments and feedback you have given us. This is done by:

  • ‘Surgical Spirit’ – this is our quarterly patient newsletter that can be picked up free of charge in the waiting room.
  • An annual patient survey. If you are randomly selected to receive one of these questionnaires we would be pleased if you could complete it to enable us to know your views and opinions. Results can be seen at the main exit door or on our website.
