long waiting times over phones

June 30, 2022
I have been with the surgery for a longtime and have always been really happy with the care. Waiting times are annoying at the moment especially for me as I am using a pay as you go phone so have to keep on eye on how much credit is being used on just waiting on hold. This sometimes outs me off even calling up.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Waterloo Practice. It is lovely to know that you are happy with the care we provide as a practice. As regards the telephone waiting times, at the moment we are experiencing a very high demand on our telephone system so I would recommend that you contact the practice after 2pm when our lines are less busy or alternatively, the quickest way to contact us is via an eConsult on our website ( .

We are always looking for ways to improve our practice so if you would like to help advise us and give feedback, we are always looking for patients to join the Waterloo Patient Participation Group. If you'd like to be involved or find out more please email

Thanks, Cheryl Lear, Practice Operations Manager

GPS couldn't do more for you

May 19, 2022
Very happy with the quality of the care from the GP's. They have been really looked after me and my husband and always listened and acted on all out concerns.
The only area where I could say need improvements is some of the reception staff sometimes have a miserable attitude.

You might also want to consider using the E-Consult system on your GP practice website which lets you request information or advice from a health professional. If you visit, about half way down the home page you will see a box saying 'e-consult'. Click on this and then if you click on 'I want general advice', you will be asked a few questions and you should get a response before the end of the next working day.

Medication not issued

May 13, 2021
Specialist changed my mother's medication on 16 April wasn't changed by surgery until 12 May despite a letter being sent electronically on the 22 April. Kept telling me they couldn't find the letter so I phoned specialists secretary and found where they needed to look.

System won't let me key details in.

Telephone appointments system is frustrating.Just a simple statement that there are delays and some music are fine.Too much information and repetitive warnings and statements about delays are very annoying.

Appointments difficult to get

January 22, 2020
Difficult to get appointments. Always delay in seeing GP despite them having a small amount of same day.

Busy Practice

June 19, 2019
When calling the surgery the explanation is long winded. I can't always get an appointment when I need one but recently its become harder. It is a very busy practice but when I need regular appointments I can get them, its more the emergency ones.

Generally happy with service

June 19, 2019
I often make appointments by phone and it takes a long time to get through, getting appointments can be a problem as English is not my first language and it is very busy. The doctor is able to speak to me in my language. My daughter helps me when I use the online service. I am generally happy with the service.

Anticoagulant Clinic

June 19, 2019
I attend the anticoagulant clinic the nursing staff are knowledgeable, know what they are doing and friendly. Fitting in a specific day is not always easy but fortunately I am flexible.

No complaints

June 19, 2019
I rang this morning at 8am for an appointment and got through at 8.30am. I was told there was no appointments. The doctor rang me and booked me in for today at 11am. I have no complaints, the staff are all really friendly and helpful. I don't use the online services
