A DOCTORS’ surgery in Boroughbridge has won an award for its services to young people in the town.
Church Lane Surgery has been presented with a Youth Charter Certificate after members of Boroughbridge Youth Council spent time at the health centre assessing what was on offer for the town’s youths.
The assessment involved the youth councillors speaking to members of staff and they also carried out a ‘secret shopper’ exercise with a mystery telephone call to the reception desk.
Members of the Youth Council said they were extremely pleased with the response they got from Wendy Dowson, the practice manager, and her staff team as well as the doctors based there.
The Youth Council also has representatives on the surgery’s user-participation panel who meet to discuss ways of improving local services.
