I’ve been registered with this GP since 2021. All of mine and my daughter’s issues have been dealt with in a timely and sensitive nature. All the GPs I have seen, have been professional and shown empathy. Whilst my daughter’s issue is still ongoing they have taken all the steps which have helped in identifying a cause. I don’t ever feel like I’m not taken seriously and they always provide a response to any medical request I have. I would like to thank the team for being caring and looking out for the both of us.
Posted on: 14/05/2024

Excellent and immediate response to my query using the online appointment system. Attentive and helpful GP both over the phone that concluded in an ‘in person’ appointment later that day with a GP who was just as helpful and responsive as the first. I felt like I had received exceptional service from them - I just hope the private sector company that they have been obliged to refer me to for a scan are a fraction as efficient and helpful (I doubt it). NHS at its finest today, thank you! Yours Sincerely a Grateful Patient
Posted on: 14/05/2024

Posted on: 09/05/2024

Lovely attitude of receptionist when I called to query a response to my email. She listened carefully to me and then understood my needs. She then posed a different question to the doctor and rang me back with a good solution to my issue. All with patience and an obvious desire to help. Such a refreshing change in this day and age.

I have just received some first-class service from the Hulme Hall medical group from first responding to a query and then subsequently setting up an appointment with Dr Joshua Barnett.
