NHS Friends and Family Test

With effect from 1st December 2014 the NHS Friends and Family Test will be introduced. The test will ask you to reflect on your recent experiences of our service and rate accordingly. There will also be one follow up question. The forms will be handed to patients during one clinic each month. However, if you wish to participate and have not been handed a form then please ask at reception. Results of the test will be published on a monthly basis.

Mental Health Support

Download a very useful leaflet containing information on books, links and mobile phone apps relating to common mental health problems.

Westminster Surgery serves patients in Ellesmere Port and the surrounding area, we have 4 GPs supported by nurses and administrative staff. We are a Personal Medical Services (PMS) site which means that the services offered are targeted to meet the healthcare needs of the locality.

We offer a comprehensive range of general medical and health care services for you and your family which we are always seeking to expand and improve. The staff who work at the practice are part of our health care team working for your benefit.

How information about you helps us to provide better care

Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet How information about you helps us to provide better care or download it here.

More information can be found here www.nhs.uk/caredata.
