Cripps Health Centre rated ‘best GP surgery in Nottingham’


August 11th, 2016

Cripps Health Centre has been named the top GP practice in Nottingham, according to the GP Patient Survey carried out on behalf of NHS England.

79% of patients rated their experience at Cripps Health Centre as ‘very good’, placing The University of Nottingham Health Service first out of 57 practices in the Nottingham area. A total of 4,500 patients were consulted for the survey, which collected data during July-September 2015 and January-March 2016.

With around 41,000 patients, Cripps Health Centre is the biggest single-site GP practice in the country, and serves mainly University students and staff.

Dr Matthew Litchfield, a GP at the centre, said: “We all work hard to deliver a good service. Wherever you practice medicine, the doctors, nurses and other staff are the prime factors that make a difference.

“Patients appreciate that we have short waiting lists, and that if people have a condition that needs to be seen that day, then we see everybody. It’s an open-ended promise, and it’s up to the patient to decide if they need to be seen.”

This follows news that the University has received a £9 million gift to develop a new health centre, which will allow for the existing surgery and dental centre on University Park to be repurposed. The vision for the new facility is centred on a coordinated approach to student health and wellbeing and will allow the University, and surrounding community, unrivalled healthcare facilities within Higher Education.
