Positive Feedback

Welcome to our Positive Feedback page

We are taking this step to try to redress the balance of negative comments made about GP surgeries and Primary Care in general, through various forms of media including the press, social media, and various “experience-type” review websites including NHS Choices. We feel that comments posted in this way may give a false impression of our practice and the service we provide as they do not include the many positive comments that we receive directly.

Our aim is to celebrate the things that go right and the systems that work well, but to also to work to improve in the areas where we could do better.

"Hello Whitehill,

I would just like to thank Dr Paul and the Oxford Healthy Minds team for their outstanding care to help me overcome my recent issues and get me back to good health. 

From the 1st call with Dr Paul, his gentle and sympathetic care for me has been outstanding. Then referring me to the Healthy Minds team who assessed me within hours and days to find a treatment path which has really helped me get things back into perspective. 

I will always be grateful for the care I have received from Dr Paul and the team at Whitehill and would recommend your outstanding care to anyone.

I would be happy for you to post this message or elements of it onto your positive feedback site. "

I can't thank her enough for all the help she gave me - for the time she spent on me - gave me hope and made me feel so much better - my thanks to her that I am going to be seen at hospital tomorrow a week earlier. What a doctor - an asset to Whitehill. "

“ I have suffered pain and discomfort for more than 10 years. Over the last couple of months Dr Paul has been treating me. He has chased hospital results and carefully considered my symptoms; he has issued me with the correct medication treating the underlying cause. As a result I am able to enjoy a happier and more fulfilling lifestyle.”
