Welcome to Lapworth Surgery
Welcome to the Lapworth Surgery website, where you can access a wide range of health services available at our surgery.
Lapworth Surgery is located beside the Stratford Canal, close to its junction with the Grand Union Canal.
The Surgery was opened in 1991 to serve the residents of Lapworth and neighbouring villages. Dr Gareth Rowland and Dr Caron Bates took over the Practice in November 2009.
Lapworth Patient Participation Group (LPPG) – seeking your views
The latest Patient survey results for Lapworth Surgery show Patients being incredibly supportive of the service they receive from Gareth, Caron and the team. At the same time many areas in the country are under pressure in terms of accessing GP appointments and as a result many Practices are increasingly merging and offering a variety of ways to consult with their GP or other healthcare professional eg via telephone consultations, group consultations, digital apps and online.
NHS England is also proposing a new initiative to provide additional Routine GP appointments Monday to Friday 6:30pm to 8:00pm and weekend appointments from 8:00am to 8:00pm. Within South Warwickshire these services are likely to be delivered through area based Hubs. The precise locations of these Hubs have yet to be agreed but for us are likely to be within a 20 to 30 mile round trip of Lapworth Surgery.
The LPPG are unanimous in our view that we want to retain the personal service at our Surgery, (we are now the smallest Practice in the South Warwickshire Region) but we want to be sure our views are representative of the Lapworth Surgery Patient Community as a whole so if you could spare us 5 minutes of your time we would be grateful if you could complete the attached questionnaire consisting of just four questions (plus your gender and age group) so we can fully take account of your views.
This survey is being sent via the Surgery website with their full support and all responses are completely confidential and individual responses cannot be identified. For those people not on email paper copy questionnaires will also be made available for completion at the Surgery and also via the Surgery website plus a newsletter planned in the local Parish magazines for Lapworth and Rowington
We thank you in advance for your time and support in completing this questionnaire via the link below and will share the results with you after the completion date of 31 August 2018 and once the responses have been collated.
