Are you interested in joining our Patient Group? 

We meet every other month and discuss how the Practice may be improved to better meet your needs. Click the Patient Group link below for more information. 

What should you do if you are ill and need an appointment with the doctor quickly?

If you need to see your doctor urgently please telephone the surgery as soon after 8.00am as possible. The earlier in the day the better so we have more time to liaise with our Community and Hospital Colleagues if this is necessary.

Once all our appointments are booked for the day any remaining urgent requests will be triaged and you may be asked to attend the surgery. Receptionists are instructed to take full details of the problem for the doctor’s information.

We advise that it is quite safe to wrap up children who are unwell against inclement weather and bring them to the surgery. As we do not offer transport you are advised to have arrangements in place should you be asked to attend. Arrangements will usually be made for you to see one of the Doctors within 24 hours should your condition warrant this. 

 

Here’s some practical advice for when you need to get in to see your doctor on an urgent medical matter and you are offered an appointment that you believe is too far into the future.

·Be up front about why you need the appointment. This will help our staff to triage your appointment appropriately, and most of the time, will be all you need to do.
