NEW: More GP Appointments released
Over the next three months we are working with NHS England to offer extra GP appointments. This is because we know that there are times you want to be able to see a GP at short notice. We also know that over winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses which require more than a pharmacy but don’t need emergency treatment.
The extra appointments are bookable on the day by ringing reception on the usual number or by booking online (note: please change this if the booking details are different).
If you haven’t yet signed up for GP Online Services simply call into the practice with two forms of photo ID and proof of address. We can sign you up there and then. GP Online Services makes it easy to book appointments online, request repeat prescriptions and view some of your medical records. Find out more about this on www.nhs.uk/GPonlineservices
If you are not able to attend an appointment you have booked, for whatever reason, please let us know. We can then offer that appointment to someone else that needs it.
Please call in at reception or telephone 583133 during surgery opening hours only. As Monday morning is the busiest time of the week, please avoid telephoning then for non-urgent appointments or results. It is usually much easier to telephone the surgery in the afternoon. Please make it clear if your problem requires urgent attention. If you are acutely ill you will always be seen on the same day but not necessarily by your own doctor.
Appointments can also be made online via SystmOnline. You will need to complete a registration form to receive a username and password to access this facility. Forms can be found in Reception, once completed please hand the form to a Receptionist, with one form of ID, who will then issue you with your unique user name and password. We are unable to offer this facility to anyone aged under 18 years of age.
For routine matters please arrange to see your own doctor who will know your medical history. Five-minute emergency appointments are available to discuss one problem only and, if necessary, will be made by the doctor following a telephone consultation.
