Carterknowle & Dore Patient Survey 2018

In coming months the practice has plans for a renovation project at Carterknowle practice. These plans include an upgrade to all patient waiting areas along with the creation of three new downstairs clinical rooms. However we would like feedback from patients to let us know what other changes are important to you in order to improve your patient experience.
