The team treats patients with a range of medical conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as providing routine treatments and wound care, as well as a nail surgery service to people over the age of 18.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.

I had nail fold surgery this week on both sides of both my big toes. Caryn and her helper were friendly, professional and a credit to this service. Christian did the initial assessment and he too was very thourough, making sure he contacted my specialist due to being treated for cancer. My one critiscm is that the admin can be a bit chaotic at times but the people are all lovely.
The staff are very dedicated and professional and I was happy to have received a service from them.
Thank you for your care and diligence.

Dear Kes

Many thanks for you comments regarding your recent experience with the nail surgery team. We are all delighted things went well and apologies for any confusion with your admin' experience.

At that time we were undergoing changes in the telephone communication system and alteration of contact details and numbers so it appears this was the cause of any slight hiccups. This has now been fully resolved and I'm confident that should you need to contact the team at any point in the future the communication will be seamless.

Many thanks again for taking time to comment on your experience.

Kind regards

Andrew Macfarlane
Consultant Podiatric Surgeon and Clinical Lead

Dear Team,

I recently had surgery on my toe.

My assessment was done by Caryn and my procedure was done by Christopher and a student. I will like to thank Caryn, for making me feel at ease and did all she could to reassure me. Christopher and the student did a good job on the day, they made sure i was calm and spoke to me in a manner that i liked.

Both Caryn and Christopher, saw me on time each visit. They never made me feel like just a number, they did not rush me, they made me feel welcomed and even laughed at my jokes.

Am really satisfied with their service. Keep up the good work.

Good luck.

Sorry for my late feedback , I would like to highly commend Caryn Mortimer and Christian from the dept of nail surgery . I had to have a procedure on my foot and was really anxious about it , but they put me at ease and it didn’t hurt a bit .Everything was explained to me start to finish . It’s healed perfectly .
Thank you

Dear Victoria

Many thanks for your positive comments and feedback about your nail surgery experience under Caryn's and Christian's care. We are all delighted that your worries were allayed and you have had a successful outcome from surgery.

The nail surgery service is very popular and your comments certainly help those in a similar position who are naturally anxious about having anything done, to be reassured that if they chose to have treatment, that they will be well cared for and can expect a successful resolution to their problem.

We are all very proud of this service and thank you once again for taking the time to pass on your experience.

With kind regards

Andrew Macfarlane
Consultant Podiatric Surgeon and Clinical Lead

I wanted to commend Dr Caryn Mortimer, Oxleas and the NHS for my treatment. The dedication, professionalism and speed in which I was treated, has been nothing short of astounding.

Throughout the entire procedure Dr Mortimer, kept me at ease, kept me talking and kept me smiling.

I am very thankful and glad that I am now making a speedy recovery!

Dear Andrew

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment in relation to the treatment you received.

Our teams value your feedback and I will ensure Caryn receives your email. She will be delighted to hear your procedure was positive in a number of ways.

We hope you make a full recovery in the near future.

Best wishes

Lisa Thompson
Associate Director, Greenwich Community Services

I had a nail surgery done on the 12th of May 2017 at Garland Road Clinic by Christian who was an absolute gentle and warm personality and this is to thank him for everything. My toe is healing progressively.
The follow up appointment on the 15th May 2017 was by Karyn at the Fairfield Centre she is also kind and warm. We should be proud of our NHS. God Bless you all.
