  • 97 percent stated that their experience of both practices was good;
  • 100 percent explained that they had confidence and trust in both their GP and nursing staff;
  • 94 percent stated they did not have to wait long for an appointment;
  • 88 percent were satisfied with the practices’ opening hours;
  • 97 percent said they found the reception desk to be very helpful.

As these results suggest, The Practice Leecon Way is doing very well in all areas, proving that with hard work and dedication to patients’ needs, anything is achievable.”
