It’s here…

Did you know we have a new appointment system? On our first day the duty team saw 130 patients. They carried out 40 telephone call appointments and dealt with 9 home visit requests.

 

Be seen on the day you want by contacting the surgery on that day. You will be offered a flexible time for an appointment to discuss one problem. You will be seen by one of the clinical team members working that day. The duty team will also be dealing with telephone calls and administration. Please be aware, when there is high demand for appointments there will be a waiting time.

 

We will be continuing usual doctor appointments and telephone calls-based on our registered GP system. These appointments mean you can still book in advance to see or speak to your usual doctor about ongoing issues. We will keep you informed?
