Difficult to get appt with doctors face to face. Too much reliance on phone appts. Saturday 9 September
Had to wait a long time to be seen at a booked app Saturday 9 September
Because they get so many things wrong . Getting a appointment is a nightmare. Someone is going to die one day because of this . I hate going to the doctors as everything is so hard work . Plus the phone appointments are not right. I think you should be able to get a appointment with in 24 hours . Some of the staff need better training. Friday 8 September
I have been with Ballard's walk surgery for 56 year's, and have been disappointed in the last few years due to not being able to get face to face appointments, and I think my arthritis was missed because of this.although I did get a face to face with Dr Tarnia and was very impressed and has given me hope for the future.

I haven't attended the Doctors since covid. So wasn't sure how i would get on. But my experience was a very good one. I managed to get to see a doctor at another surgery on the same. Who diagnosed my problem.Had to do 2 swab test which i took back to my own surgery. Results were back within 2 days the weekend being those 2 days via a text. I had to then make a telephone call appointment which i did on the Tuseday. My own Doctors called me couple of hours later. Confirming what i actually had wrong. Dr Mitchell sent over the script to Asda. That was the hardest part getting hold of medication took 3 pharmacy's to get it,the Great Berry pharmacy very kindly ordered it in for me . Came the next day. Pleased to say all is good now. Cannot fault the surgery thank you for your efficiency. Friday 8 September
