CHANGES TO OUR APPOINTMENT SYSTEM

Please be aware from Monday 16th May our appointment system is changing. 

URGENT PROBLEMS If you have an urgent problem that needs dealing with that day please telephone the practice between 8.30am and 9.30am and ask for the Rapid Access clinic. The Doctor will deal with your problem over the phone and offer advice, prescriptions, referral or a same day appointment as clinically appropriate. 

ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS For routine appointments you can still pre-book up to 6 weeks in advance with the doctor of your choice, subject to availability, including on the day if we have free appointments. 

MEDICAL EMERGENCIES If you do not have an appointment between 9.30am and 6pm we will deal with medical emergencies only. A doctor will be available by phone to deal with these if they arise. These changes are needed as a way for us to manage increasing demand on our service and to try and prioritise our scarce Doctor resources to those people who are in most need of that expertise. Thank you for working with us during this change and supporting our staff implement this new appointment system.
