The Receptionists are advised by the GPs’ to ask for a brief description of the reason when you request an appointment.

They are highly trained to direct you to the most appropriate healthcare professional for the required length of time, in order for you to receive the best possible care. This also helps the clinician to prepare any special equipment or information needed prior to your consultation, preventing unnecessary delays to other patients.

All staff at Quorn Medical Centre are bound by confidentiality. We are committed to working together to ensure that your experience of us is a positive one.



Accessible Information Standard


From the 31st July 2016 all Practice’s need to abide by the new Accessible Information Standard (AIS) which is a new NHS England information standard.


What does this mean for patients?

The AIS aims to ensure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss receive information that they can access and understand, for example in large print, braille or via email, and professional communication support if they need it, for example from a British Sign Language (BSL)interpreter.


Please inform the surgery if you have any communication needs so that we can highlight this on your medical record.


Friends & Family Test (FFT)

Quorn Medical Centre would like to thank our patients for the positive comments we have received. The FFT questionnaire is an on-going initiative of NHS England. Please be assured we also take note of any negative comments, but if you require a response, please remember to leave a number or an email address, so that the Practice Manager can respond accordingly.
