Changes to our appointment system

 

As we continue to work through this pandemic we are making some further changes to our appointment system which are being implemented at the surgery from 7th March 2022.

If you need medical assistance please try to call the surgery as early as you can, the surgery opening hours are 08.30am-6.00pm. Our team of trained Health Navigators will direct you to the most appropriate clinician to help resolve your issue, which might not always be a GP. You will be offered an appropriate appointment which may range from the same or next day to two weeks.

From 7th March 22 we will be increasing the number of GP routine and urgent face to face appointments. If you require urgent same day treatment (and are not Covid-19 positive or do not have any Covid-19 symptoms) you will advised of a time to come in to see a GP.

What about emergencies? Always dial 999 in a life-threatening emergency.

THINK 111 FIRST -If it is not a life-threatening emergency please do call 111 or go to www.111.nhs.uk first where you can get quick expert advice.
