HOW DO I...
MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?


If you wish to make an appointment please PHONE 552200.

Please inform us as soon as possible if you no longer need your appointment so that we can offer it to someone else. Due to the increasing number of patients failing to keep their appointments, the practice has decided that anyone who persistently fails to keep an appointment without giving notice may be asked to leave the practice list.

Patients aged 16 to 74 who have not had a consultation within the last three years are invited to make an appointment with the practice nurse for a general health check. Patients aged 75 or over who have not had a consultation for more than 12 months are invited to do the same.

CLICK HERE to book a doctors appointment using our online facility.

MAKE AN URGENT APPOINTMENT?

If you feel your problem is urgent, please say so and you can be seen at short notice.

EMERGENCIES WILL OF COURSE BE ATTENDED TO AT ANY TIME.

PHONE 552200

HOW DO I...
OBTAIN A HOME VISIT?


If the patient is too ill to travel, a house visit may be requested. If possible, please phone 552200 before 10.00am. Please be prepared to give the receptionist a few details of the illness. They are trained to deal with this in confidence. It helps us to decide which calls we should do first.

Telephone advice is also available. Where possible please contact the surgery before 10.00am and be prepared to give the receptionist a few details so that they can establish if telephone advice is appropriate.


HOW DO I...
OBTAIN TEST RESULTS?


Test results take at least 48 hours to come back from the lab.
Please phone 552200 between 10.00am and 4.00pm on any day to check your results. The receptionist will give you the result or advise you to make an appointment to see the doctor. While we would normally contact you if the test showed something serious, you should always contact us to receive the result. Patients over 16 years of age must request their own results unless the practice has been notified at the time of consultation that a named person would request results on their behalf.

HOW DO I...
REGISTER?

All patients are registered with the practice not an individual doctor. Complete and sign a medical card or registration form (a questionnaire must be completed at the time of registering to be fully registered with the practice).
