Benson Community Health Fair
Saturday 25th April 10am-1pm, Benson Parish Hall
There’ll be something for everyone!!
As spring approaches here is an opportunity to take stock and consider how to get the best out of life. You may be thinking it’s time to take up a new activity, find new friends, take a health check, talk to someone about something that’s been niggling you, find support to help you deal with some difficult problem in your life, or discover how you can improve your health and wellbeing.
The draft programme can be found on the following link...

Friends and Family Test
We are now offering you the opportunity to give brief feedback on our surgery by completing the Friends and Family Test. This will help us to improve our services. Click on the following link below to access the brief survey - Friends and family test.
We are pleased to announce that we are introducing a text message reminder service for our patients. This will include
o Appointment reminders
Texts will be sent when you book an appointment and 2 days before your appointment. Please be aware that if you cancel or change your appointment you may still receive text reminders for the original appointment which you should ignore
o Test results available
Texts will be sent once your results have been checked by a doctor. Please be aware that tests are sent to several laboratories and take differing lengths of time to process. If you have more than one test done you may receive a text reminder for each individual result.
It is vital that we have your correct number on our records – if you need to update your mobile phone number please let us know at the surgery.
We think text reminders will be very beneficial to our patients but if you have a strong objection to text reminders please let us know. We would appreciate any feedback from patients once the new reminders system is in place.
