Patient Feedback

Very Caring, efficient and happy practice. All the partners pleasant.”

Having the physio available in the surgery is wonderful

Generally I thing the Mere surgery is well run and is an asset for the village

A Doctor is available to talk to everyday (Mon-Fri), our prescriptions service is second to none. Very well organised practice – everyone very helpful

I strongly feel that the care my family and I receive from the Mere Practice is excellent and that everyone in the practice has that “can doattitude that makes it work so well

The ancillary staff (nurses and reception staff) whose demure remains welcoming, cool, calm and collected even when at their busiest

I feel totally at ease with the care, advice and help provided by the practice

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
