Dear Patients of Balham Park Surgery,
Filming of GPs Behind Closed Doors has now finished at the surgery and we would like to say thank you very much for enabling us to be here for the last nine months. With your help we have been able to produce an informative, honest, entertaining and moving account of what really happens in urban general practice.
We would like to say a big thank you to those who shared their stories with us, without you there would be no GPs Behind Closed Doors. We have been very moved by your honesty, generosity and bravery.
Series 3 has seen the highest audience figures of the programme to date and it has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the public and medical community alike. It has also started many conversations about how important general practice is within the NHS.
We would also like to thank those who didn’t wish to take part in filming but understood our being here and those who gave a wave to, or took the time to have a chat with, our team in the waiting room.
We are grateful to each and everyone one of you for your support and to those who may not have been pleased with our presence, we again apologise for any discomfort you may have felt, but we hope you can recognise the merits of the surgery taking part in the programme.
Balham Park Surgery has shown general practice at its very best – and we all feel you are lucky to be patients here.
Best wishes to you all,
The Knickerbockerglory Production Team
