APPOINTMENTS

To ensure continuity of care we try, where possible, to book patients with their usual GP. This has been shown to improve health outcomes.  However, this many not be possible in an urgent situation.

To try and ensure that patients are seen as quickly as possible, we have asked our receptionists to ask for a brief idea of the reason for the appointment. This means  that they can see the right person.  This may not be the GP. We have a team of health care professionals. For example, we are pleased to announce that we have a new prescribing nurse practitioner as well as ou paramedic who have recently joined the practice who can see minor illnesses n& injuries. The receptionist can guide you to the correct professional. All information is, of course, strictly confidential.”
