If you have joined us recently, make an appointment with our practice manager and after that with the practice nurse for a "New Patient Health Check" to let us know about your health needs as soon as possible.
An appointment system is in operation, although there is always flexibility to cope with urgent medical cases. Our aim is always to see people with urgent problems the same day You can make an appointment by telephone or in person at the reception desk. Please help us by cancelling your appointment with the receptionist if you are unable to keep it. Please remember that incoming telephone lines are extremely busy during the early part of the morning. It would be appreciated if you could give as much notice as possible when making routine appointments. At least we need 24 hours notice
Patients are requested to telephone the surgery before 10.00am if a visit is required in order to allow the doctor time to plan their calls. Several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time that it takes to do a home visit and it is at the doctor's discretion as to whether a home visit is deemed necessary.
Regular repeat prescriptions are computerised. Each prescription has a tear off slip which enables the next prescription to be ordered. For reasons of safety we cannot take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. If it is more convenient we are happy to post prescriptions as long as a stamped, addressed envelope is provided. Please anticipate your needs and allow two working days before collecting your prescription. Repeat prescriptions for oral contraception or hormone replacement therapy cannot be obtained in this way but only by seeing your doctor.
Please request for repeat prescriptions after 11am and give 24 hours notice. You may need to see the Doctor from time to time first before your medication can be issued.
The telephones are busiest in the morning, especially Monday. If you are ringing for test results please ring in the afternoon. Results will only be given to the patient themselves or to parents of minors.
