Community Pharmacy Patient Questionnaire 2018/19

Every year we undertake an annual patient survey to enable our patients to provide valuable feedback on the services that we provide. The survey, undertaken by all community pharmacies in England, is called the Community Pharmacy Patient Questionnaire. The report of our survey results allows us to identify the areas where we are performing most strongly, the areas for improvement and the actions required to address issues raised by respondents. A brief commentary into our results for 2018/2019 is provided here:

Re: Community Pharmacy Patient Questionnaire (CPPQ)

Number of completed questionnaires: 108

We have recently conducted the CPPQ in this pharmacy for the year 2018/19, as required by the terms of the NHS community pharmacy contractual framework.

We are sharing with you the areas where the survey identified the greatest potential for improvement and the action being taken to improve performance, along with the areas in which the pharmacy is performing strongly:

Areas where the pharmacy is performing strongly

Brief commentary

1 – Being polite & taking the time to listen to what you want.

99% of respondents rated their experience as fairly good or very good. Accompanying this there was also a high level of satisfaction with regards to answering queries.

2 – A very positive perception of the service received by the pharmacist & other staff members.

95% and 94% of respondents rated the services from the pharmacist and other staff positively, with 99% positive responses to the question asking respondents how they rate the staff overall.

3 – Having in stock the medicines/appliances needed by patients for prescriptions

91% of respondents rated this as fairly good or very good, reflecting our efforts to stock the items that our regular patients need and tailor stock for the management of acute conditions to the prescribing patterns of local prescribers.

Area where the survey identified the greatest potential for improvement

Brief commentary and action being taken to improve performance

Some respondents commented that we didn’t have a consultation room or somewhere that they could consult a member of staff privately if need be. This is despite the fact that we have had a consultation room for a number of years. This was also reflected in the answers to Question 4f which asked respondents to rate the pharmacy in terms of having somewhere that they could speak to someone without being overheard – our feedback was positive, but not as overwhelmingly positive as with the other areas that patients were asked to rate.

We already had one sign up stating that we have a Private Consultation room. We put up further signs in very prominent positions within the pharmacy that should effectively raise awareness amongst our patients that we do have facilities that enable a confidential discussion to take place.

  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

Changes to our operations and service

Please bear with us and be kind to our staff. We are exceptionally busy and re-organising our services to provide the best possible service.  Due to the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are having to restrict access to the public for certain periods of the day.

The closed periods enable the pharmacy staff to remain on top of the increased workload, keep the premises tidy and to have some rest.

  • Our opening hours have CHANGED. We are now open from 9am-12pm and 2pm-5.30pm Monday to Friday. Saturday 9am-2pm. We are closed on Sundays.
  • Delivery is now only available to the over 70s, people with underlying health conditions who have be written to by the NHS, people that must self isolate due to displaying Coronavirus symptoms and have no-one who can collect for them.
  • Please queue outside with 2m gap between each person.

We will be restricting numbers entering the pharmacy so you may have to wait outside. You must then stand well away from the counter and away from other people.

If you have a cough or a temperature please do not come into the pharmacy. Guidance as to whether you need to self isolate is available online at: https://111.nhs.uk
