Suspension of normal service
Due to COVID-19 the Practice is currently operating a telephone triage appointment system with GP’s. Most appointments are for on-the-day use, and can be booked if you call from 8am. We do have a small number of telephone appointments with GPS that can be booked in advance. If the GP feels you need a face to face appointment, they will arrange a time for you to visit the practice.
Nurse appointments for blood tests, necessary injections, dressing and chronic disease monitoring are still being carried out however, you may be offered a telephone appointment with the Practice Nurse before the face to face appointment is made.
Please do not attend the Practice in person without a pre-arranged appointment.
Emergency telephone slots are available everyday for any problem that you consider cannot wait until the next day. We request that you do not make inappropriate use of our emergency services
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please let us know quickly so that it can be offered to someone else. Each month approximately 100 patients fail to keep their appointment without letting us know. Over a year this represents the equivalent of two weeks consultation time. This is a huge waste of our time that could be available to you! If you wish, you can cancel using our online form, or if you have signed up to our texting service by texting the word CANCEL to 07860 035 293.
If you feel it is appropriate, you may ask your doctor for a chaperone to be present during your consultation or examination.
Continuity of Care
Patients are free to consult the health professional of their choice. We like to offer patients flexibility to choose which doctor or nurse they wish to see, recognising that individuals offer differing consulting styles, and differing areas of special interest and expertise. We also recognise that patients may prefer to see a male, or female doctor about some complaints. We do, however, strongly encourage patients to see their usual doctor or nurse for management and review of long-term conditions.
