Friends of Hadleigh Practice/The NHS Friends & Family Test

We are committed to giving you the best possible service. To achieve this doctors, staff and patients must work together.


The Friends of the Hadleigh practice was formed by a group of volunteer patients in 1995 with the following aims:

  • To compile a register of volunteers to help with various projects when required.
  • To raise health awareness by holding health education meetings and lectures.
  • To inform patients of changes and developments in the practice.
  • To enable patients to express their viewpoints about their care.
  • To raise funds.

To this end the Friends of the practice are involved with patient surveys which are conducted in an effort to improve services and to ascertain patient needs.

We need your help!!

You may know that the patient group, The Friends of the Hadleigh practice (FOTHP), does a lot of sterling work for the patients of the practice.

Examples include stewarding the ‘Flu Clinics every year and organising events for patients. We also decide how any donations of money to the practice can be spent most beneficially for our patients. The FOTHP is involved in gathering patient opinions – for example by helping the practice staff to carefully plan occasional surveys. These surveys help the practice to offer the best possible service.

But now it is we who need your help. We need to boost our membership and would love to hear from anyone who is a patient at the Hadleigh practice (Broadstone or Corfe Mullen).

Do you have the odd hour or two to spare each month and would you like to join our committee? We are a very friendly bunch who are all committed to supporting the Hadleigh patients in any way we can.

Interested? Please give me a ring and I can tell you more about us.
