Patient Satisfaction Survey 2020
This report summarises the results of our second patient survey carried out since Seagrave Healthcare Ltd took over the clinic in July 2016. Staff offered questionnaires to patients who attended the clinic between 16/12/2020 and 31/12/2020, with completed questionnaires posted in the box provided to ensure anonymity.
We had a 100% response rate from those patients who were given a questionnaire, with no one declining to complete it. In total we received 27 questionnaires, which represents a response rate at over 15% of current active patients. We asked the patients to rate several aspects of their service experience, as well as offer comments and suggestions.
We also included the “Friends and Family Test”, an important feedback tool widely used in the NHS, asking the patients if they would recommend the service they use to their own friends and family. The survey results and commentary are presented below.
1. How would you rate the services received?
Responses to Q1 are overwhelmingly positive, with 70% rating the service as ‘excellent’, 26% ‘good’.
'Nigel brilliant - everyone very helpful'
‘Very responsive and helpful. Understanding of our situation.’

'For 10 years I have been in contact with professional team of OAD clinic. Regarding substance abuse, trauma and ADHD. Service never failed.'
'I have everyone from Dr D'Agnone to Soraia to be excellent. They have provided care out of hours and at weekends and I believe that they have my best interests at heart and are not money driven or run a superficial practice.'
