By this time my appointment time was 8 minutes prior. I didn't like the way she spoke to me in front of other patients. She was quite rude. Never had a problem before, and the nurse was lovely, so the rest of my experience there was no problem at all.

  • Great friendly service
  • Have always received the best treatment a specially during the Pandemic& was same this morning x
  • I only had to wait about 8 minutes past my appointment time before being called in. The nurse was ready for me. She listened to my concerns around not being able to access the blood tests I had at Treliske 2 weeks ago. Had Mz surgery been able to access them this blood test would possibly have been unnecessary . The nurse also listened to my concerns about the amount of waste that is going on in the NHS at the moment partly because of Covid but also because of possible over testing. The nurse also listened to my concerns about the packaging of the drugs I have regularly and has requested that I have bubble pack with the days of the week printed on them. I did not feel as though she wanted to shoo me out.
  • I think we have the best surgery and all the doctors and staff are very professional and pleasant to deal with, thank you

  • Staff were very friendly and professional and was seen promptly after arrival.
  • The attention from your surgery has always been excellent, and again this morning.
  • Unfortunately arrived 2 minutes late due to traffic in the village. Was 10minutes late checking in after the lady before me at the desk was sorting something out. I had anticipated that I may not be able to have my appointment if it made the rest of the schedule late, although I had not anticipated how rude the receptionist would be. She informed me that not only could she not reschedule my appointment, I MUST move to a GP in Bristol now that I am there 4-5 days a week during term time (30-40%of the year..) but I MUST move, she can't reschedule the smear test, "off you go!" basically! I tried to explain that I wanted to stay with the Marazion surgery as I like the Doctors and the receptionists are (usually)really friendly and helpful and the e-consult service is really good and I like the pharmacy my prescriptions go to, but I couldn't get a word in and she made it pretty clear I should leave and never come back! I couldn't believe how rude she was. Especially as when I booked the appointment on the phone and explained that I was in Bristol during the week but back for half term, she was fine with that and made sure I could get my smear booked in. All in all a very unpleasant experience.

Please contact the Practice Manager as we would like the opportunity to discuss and resolve your concerns but we do not have your contact details.

I find the whole experience very satisfactory. The only reason I don’t circle ‘extremely likely’ is that I’m not the sort of person who goes round recommending doctor’s practices!

I have only been a patient for a few years; however the treatment I have received to date has been first class.

My wife had minor operation here Friday afternoon. A few days later I was concerned about the healing process. Rang surgery around 5.45pm and spoke to helpful lady on the non-appointment line who said she would get a nurse, Chloe, to call me back. She did so and was even more helpful and said she had a free appointment the following day at 8.15am. I have just seen her and she was REALLY helpful. How’s that for service!

Everyone is very kind. I can get an appointment on the same day if I need to. I like all the doctors.

Appointments readily available for that day

Great people – very good service

Friends & Family Test - November 2015

In November 2015 we had a total of 8 responses; 7 said that they were ‘EXTREMELY LIKELY’ to recommend our GP Practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment; 1 said they were unlikely.   You told us: 

All doctors have been very good and prompt appointments easy to get. Great Service.

Professional, caring, and follow up services are absolutely first rate!

Friendly and helpful reception staff. Handy dispensary on site. I can always get an appointment quickly if I need that. Doctors listen and prescribe when necessary, but don’t just hand out pills when all that is needed is reassurance. Thank you.

I have always had very good treatment at this surgery. My only problem is that about 18 months ago I completed a form so that I could log on to your website but have not received a password. I am told this should go to junk mail but it has not!   RESPONSE: The patient had provided their name and contact details so an administrator has since contacted the patient and resolved this issue, for which they were grateful.

Ordering tablets is shambolic, sometimes the website doesn’t work; sometimes the email doesn’t work; at the moment the email acknowledgement doesn’t work. The appointment system is awful, a frantic phoning by everyone at 8.15 and when you get through the appointments are gone. Suggest an early morning ‘first come first served’ might work. Third degree inquisition if you want a home visit. Results get lost. Over the top attitude on data protection – obviously never actually read the Act itself…   RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear your comments and would have liked the opportunity to look into these issues with you; however you have not provided your details. We have recently had to change to a new Email system and this led to some difficulties during the transition period; these have all now been resolved and the Email system for contacting Dispensary is working well. We appreciate that we are busy first thing in the morning and therefore advise patients to ring later in the day for routine matters such as test results. Reception staff take details for visits to allow the doctors to prioritise their workload; we take the confidentiality of our patients very seriously and act in the best interest of our patients at all times.

Brilliant GP Surgery. Dr Gambles treated me with skill and kindness to get me back to health. The receptionists and nurses are fabulous – so patient and understanding. Please don’t change anything.


The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The doctors are concerned and knowledgeable about their patients.


Never had any trouble seeing a doctor


Excellent service, flexibility and cheerfulness, unselfish and polite. How blessed we are in Marazion to have each and every one of you looking after us.


I have always found the staff, doctors and nurses very helpful. If I would make one criticism it is not about your good selves but about our system of prescriptions…… Maybe this is something that can only be dealt with by the NHS.


Have been a patient all my life (74)!! Dr Hudson even attended my wedding, sat in the pew to make certain I did not collapse!! No faults at all. Doctors really care, as do all the nurses, receptionists, pharmacy. Don’t think you can improve anything. Thank you.


Well done Katie Wills! Due to circumstances, we arrived almost 20mins late, it was nearly 1pm. Katie continued with the appointment. She was cheerful, patient and kind when drawing my blood (which is usually difficult to do). She obtained a sample at the first time of asking too. She is a credit to the surgery.


I can’t praise the doctors in this Practice high enough. We have always had excellent care. The nurses are very efficient and very friendly. The dispensary and reception are very friendly and efficient. We are so glad we are patients in this Practice.


Lucky to have such an attentive & caring GP in Dr Gambles 

Friends & Family Test - September 2015

In September 2015 we had a total of 30 responses; 27 said that they were ‘EXTREMELY LIKELY’ and 3 said they were ‘likely’ to recommend our GP Practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment.   You told us:

Efficient, clear communication from all doctors and staff. Good website. Excellent diagnostics and response from doctors. Nice atmosphere in surgery. Well done.

Because you have always taken the time to help me through my various ailments, I was happy to recommend my friend to you when her own doctors hadn’t been able to help her.

Very competent and patient centred

Excellent service with a smile Very helpful under pressure

Superb, fast treatment, plus referrals are made quickly. I phone and get an appointment straight away, I am asthmatic. Specialist clinics with support nurses available. Doctors are very professional and sympathetic. Dispensary at hand, repeats are dealt with quickly.  Simply outstanding.

Helpful, friendly and caring support when our elderly mother was taken ill when staying with us. Many thanks.

I have always had excellent treatment from the doctors here for many years and thank them.

Everyone in the surgery is extremely helpful and the service provided is excellent.

As a sufferer of anxiety I have always been reassured, give options and most importantly, listened to and supported. I have never struggled to make an appointment. Thank you Marazion Staff!

I always find the staff pleasant and helpful. I don’t have any trouble getting an appointment when I need one. The doctors are very good in my experience, if I just need reassurance about a condition they never just give out meds unnecessarily which I believe some practices do.

Thank you very much for taking the time to complete these slips. We appreciate your support.

I have been a patient at this Practice for 32 years and in all that time have never had any sort of complaint against any of the staff here. It is a wonderful centre and I can’t speak too highly of it.

I would like to say a BIG thank you to all the doctors and staff at the Marazion Surgery. I have attended several surgeries, in different parts of this country over many years and Marazion is by far the best. I am very lucky to be registered with you.

Could you provide a drinking water dispenser in or near the waiting room? We will look into this for you, but if you are feeling unwell please ask a member of staff who will get a glass of water for you.

Friendly and effective service!!

Staff very professional

Although I use the surgery rarely, as fortunately at nearly 70 years of age I am still in good health, when I have needed to, I have always found the service very satisfactory – staff friendly, helpful and efficient, and doctors have always been patient, thorough and informative.

Never had any problems. Doctors always helpful.

Excellent service – more advance appointments would be appreciated where necessary

Courteous helpful staff. Ability to see my designated GP if I book in advance. Staff endeavour to get you an appointment with any available doctor at short notice.

I have been a patient since 1966 and have excellent care and treatment

I don’t know if I would recommend - I never thought of it

The appointment system leaves a lot to be desired!

In July 2015 we had a total of 19 responses; 17 said that they were ‘EXTREMELY LIKELY’ and 2 said that they were 'likely' to recommend our GP Practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment.

People seem very thorough especially Helen Brodie who has really taken my symptoms to heart and gone way beyond my expectations.

I have had a great service here. Yes I would recommend Marazion. Both myself and my husband have nothing but praise for the treatment we have had. Thanks.

Both doctors and staff take the time to listen to patients; Patients are dealt with in a caring and timely manner; The Practice is run in a very professional manner; Having a dispensary on site is very convenient

My family and I have been patients at this surgery for the past 18 years. During this time we have received consistently excellent care and support from ALL the staff. The service this surgery provides is a shining example of everything that is brilliant about the NHS!! Thank you to you all.

Always efficient and friendly service, and always very helpful; especially useful having pharmacy on site

My wife and I could not wish for such wonderful care. 10/10

Very kind, efficient and helpful service all round.

I have always found all members of staff and doctors approachable whilst maintaining a professional manner. I have been dealt with care and have always felt that dignity as an individual patient is respected.

All the staff are helpful and pleasant. I can always get an appointment and am happy with the treatment and manner of all the GPs

Thank you very much for taking the time to complete these slips. We appreciate your support.

I have nothing but praise for this surgery. They are all so helpful and nice – from the lovely receptionists to the most senior doctor. We here in Marazion Surgery are lucky to have a very caring team of people. Thank you.

Nothing is too much trouble for anyone at the surgery. They are a cheerful helpful team, thanks.

Never any complaints – service is always excellent

We are 100% satisfied with the service provided by the health centre. The staff at reception, the dispensary and of course the doctors and nurses are all to be congratulated.

All staff are always helpful and patient and treat one with respect. I have confidence in my doctor. I appreciate your hard work. Well done.

I could not wish for a better service from all members of Marazion Surgery from the doctors, nurses and all reception and administration. The dispensary is excellent with very courteous staff, always willing to help if they can.

Because everyone is courteous and will go the extra mile to be as helpful as they can. The medical expertise is intrinsic to what everyone does and this is in parallel with a humanity that I appreciate. Thank you everyone. How do you maintain the unruffled calm?

Exceptionally caring and remarkably reliable 

Friends & Family Test - May 2015

In May 2015 we had a total of 9 responses; everyone said that they were ‘EXTREMELY LIKELY’ to recommend our GP Practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment.

The medical and prescription services are EXCELLENT. In 15 years I have always had prompt responses for appointments, treatments and any additional appointments to see specialists. Prompt, professional, caring and absolutely first rate! Bravo!

Doctors, Nurses, the Dispensing Staff, all of you are kind, considerate and efficient. Referrals to consultants are prompt. The Receptionists tolerate my frequent appearances, grumpy with xxx, with patient explanations and a smile. Thank you all.

We had an appointment with Dr Gambles with my four year old son. She was so friendly, reassuring and used her ‘magic’, made my son at ease! Amazing lady.

I would recommend people to register with this surgery. I have always had excellent care from everyone involved in the surgery and I thank you so much.

Everyone seems very caring and thorough – doctors, reception staff and nurses. Suggestion – would it be possible to place a chain in front of the fish tank? We think this might be hazardous, as if the chain or stands fell into the tank it could break (which happened once before!)

Extremely likely because all staff are professional and friendly.   Also early referrals. Reception and Pharmacy always helpful and friendly.

Thank you so much for all your fabulous compliments and comments during March 2015! You have given us a lot of praise, which has been wonderful to read. To quote some phrases:  Always received prompt friendly and good medical care here: Words can’t describe how satisfied I am with the service you give. In quiet or busy times you are always polite caring and thorough, thank you. I have always found the doctors and staff extremely helpful in explaining ‘illness’ and the very caring and cheerful way I, as a patient, am treated. The treatment I received has been excellent with follow up work very good. We are treated with courtesy and sympathy.   Usually we can be seen without long delays. Always so prompt kind and attentive; no other surgery could touch this one! Friendly helpful staff. The whole team try their best and offer a good quality of care. Always ready to explain anything that worries you; first class treatment. Because all the staff do their very best to help no matter what! Very professional and understanding. Doctors are caring and interested, we’re very lucky to have you. Have always found the experience of using Marazion Surgery a good one.

We’re listening and this is what we’re doing:

One patient commented on the ‘poor organisation in reception’, with the queues of patients waiting to speak to a dispenser or receptionist. We try to keep the length of queues as short as possible. There is a sign asking patients to stand back from the desk to allow privacy, but some patients do ignore this and stand closer. If you are concerned about being overheard you can ask to speak to a member of staff privately, at the separate hatch to the right of the main desk or in a consulting room (if available). Another patient commented on the ‘slowness of obtaining medications’ compared to Spain. We follow prescribing guidelines for patient safety; providing a prompt and efficient service for all our patients. Routine medications are usually prescribed and dispensed ready for collection two days after request, urgent prescriptions are available straight away.

Thank you very much for taking the time to complete these slips. We appreciate your support.

Thank you so much for all your fabulous compliments and comments during December 2014 and January 2015! You have given us a lot of praise, which has been wonderful to read.

We’re listening and this is what we’re doing:

During the two month period of December and January, three patients mentioned that they had difficulty getting through to book an appointment first thing in the morning. Of these two patients said they were ‘extremely likely’ to recommend us and one said they were ‘likely’ to recommend us. We have been aware of the difficulties with congestion on the telephone lines and have taken various measures to try and ease this. We appreciate that this is frustrating. We ask that patients who wish to book routine appointments, such as for blood tests or asthma checks with the nurses try to avoid ringing first thing in the morning. Patients are asked to ring in the afternoon for blood test results as these calls can be time-consuming for staff as they have to locate and then explain results. We have recently upgraded our telephone system. There are now eight incoming telephone lines to the Practice. There are always four members of staff who are dedicated to answering calls first thing in the morning. Also from Monday 2nd February 2015, the surgery will open earlier at 8.00am. This will help patients who need to contact the surgery before going to work or school. (Previously the appointments telephone number opened at 8.15am and the main lines at 8.30am).
