Comments February 2015:

  • Absolute professionalism, courtesy, understand and help in every part of the practice!  By far the best surgery practice in my 27 years of being a patient
  • Wonderful service and fantastic doctor (Dr Willby)
  • All the staff are very friendly and helpful , which is just what we need when we’re not feeling well – I have been a Burford patient for more than 70 years
  • Good Doctors here
  • It’s always a pleasant experience both on the phone or when visiting the surgery, everyone is friendly , efficient and accommodating. This would appear to be far from the norm, we are very fortunate, thank you.
  • Easy to get an appointment, especially with children
  • Service is prompt and friendly, and the doctor is very sensible.
  • Caring, competent, on time, well-equipped, as near to perfect as reasonably possible for any service to be.  This is based on my experience of GP surgery, local community hospital and major teaching hospital
  • Difficult of making an appointment with an doctor – long wait – extremely long wait on the day of appointment, no board indicating late running , no apology from reception, over 40 minutes wait
