- If you have been advised by letter or text message to make a follow-up appointment with a clinician, please telephone the surgery on 01795 530777 and one of our patient co-ordinators will be happy to help. Please ensure you inform the patient co-ordinator that you have been asked by letter or text message to book the appointment.
Please be aware that within the standard 10 minute appointment time your GP can normally only deal with a single issue. Because of the delay it would cause to other patients, and overall surgery time, the doctor may ask you to leave and book a further appointment if it is clear that they will need considerably longer than the available 10 minutes to deal with all the issues raised. If you know that you need to discuss multiple or very complex issues then please ask our receptionists for a double appointment at the outset.
Nurse Practitioner Appointments
Our nurse practitioners have been trained to assess and manage common ailments. Patients seeking urgent appointments should be aware that they may be assessed by a nurse practitioner in the first instance. They will decide on treatment or refer to the doctor if necessary. Our nurse practitioners are qualified independent nurse prescribers and are able to prescribe a wide range of prescription only medication for minor ailments and conditions.
If you do not require a physical examination the surgery can offer a consultation by telephone.
These consultations are booked like a normal appointment although we are unable to give you an exact time for when the GP is going to call you, as they are done inbetween the Doctors routine surgeries.
Please note for medico - legal reasons these calls are recorded.
