Reception

We offer a system where all of our patients have their own named accountable GP and we try to encourage patients to see their own GP where possible. There could be times when you need to see a Doctor and your GP is not in that day, on these occasions you will be offered an alternative GP for the appointment.

If you are unsure who your named GP is, please ask reception.

If you wish to change your named accountable GP, please inform us and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.

  • When we are Closed

    If you need to access GP services when the surgery  is closed you should  telephone 111.111

    The out-of-hours service is available when your GP surgery is closed and is only for urgent health problems that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens. The service operates at night, over the weekend, on bank holidays and if the surgery is closed for training purposes. It is not designed for the request or collection of repeat prescriptions, your GP surgery will handle these.

    In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

  • Direct to Your Doctor

    In March 2013 we introduced a new system for GP appointments, we have named this the “Direct to your Doctor” system. We have introduced this to provide a much more responsive system and a better quality service to all our patients.

    This means that instead of phoning the practice or coming down to the surgery and having a receptionist book a GP appointment for you, our doctors will speak with the patient first and then book an appointment according to the clinical need. When your doctor assesses that you need to be seen quickly they can schedule you an appointment the very same day or, if it is a routine matter that can wait a few days, they will give you an appointment within that timeframe. Alternatively there will be times when they can help you without the need for you to be seen in person which will save you the trouble of coming down to the surgery.

    Direct to your Doctor – How does it work for you the patient?

    From the patient’s point of view it is really simple:

    1. Phone your GP Surgery before 12pm on the day you would like to speak to the Doctor (No need to rush you do not have to ring at 0830).
    2. There is no advantage in coming to the surgery, you will be given a telephone call slot alongside all the others who have phoned in.
    3. Give your telephone contact details to the receptionist and arrange a convenient timeframe to be called back by your GP.
    4. You will be asked some simple questions to help determine if it is an ‘urgent matter’ or if it is a ‘routine’ matter. This will really help your Doctor prioritise the calls.
    5. Speak directly to your doctor, usually within two hours of calling the surgery, if they are working that day.
