How To Book

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 530 777 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.


How To Self Care

NHS services are very busy at the moment. It's important to come forward with any health concerns you have but you can help ease the pressure by choosing the right service. 

Knowing the right place to go can help you get the treatment you need faster. 



Appointment Duration

Please be aware that routine appointments are 10 minutes in duration; only one issue/ailment will be dealt with. If you require more time, you will be asked to book another appointment.  If you know that you need to discuss multiple or complex issues then please ask our receptionists for a double appointment at the outset.


Nurse Practitioner Appointments

Our nurse practitioners are trained to assess and manage minor illnesses. Patients seeking urgent appointments should be aware that they may be assessed by a nurse practitioner in the first instance who will decide on treatment or refer to a doctor if necessary. Our nurse practitioners are qualified independent nurse prescribers and are able to prescribe a wide range of prescription only medications.


Telephone Consultations

If you do not require a physical examination the surgery can offer a consultation by telephone.

Timings for telephone calls cannot be given; you may be given a timeframe in which the GP will be able to carry out the telephone consultation. 

Please note for medico - legal reasons these calls are recorded.


Improved Access

  • Newton Place Surgery has a range of appointments available every weekday between 6.30pm-8pm.

What to expect from your hospital appointment

Tests and Investigations

The specialist will order all of the tests you need and will communicate the results to you. If you have not heard about your results please contact their secretary at the hospital.


If the specialist prescribes a new drug or changes one they will provide the first prescription. You might need to collect it from the hospital pharmacy.

Sick or Fit Note (Med3)

If you need to be certified as unfit for work as a result of treatment provided, the specialist should issue a sick note when you leave the hospital. Please ask if you need one.

Follow Up Appointments/Onward Referrals

If you need a follow up appointment or an onward referral to another specialist the hospital will provide it. Please ask the specialists’ secretary if it does not arrive in a timely way.

In summary, the specialists are responsible for:

  • Looking after your test results
  • Providing a prescription when needed
  • Issuing a sick note if required
  • Providing you with a follow up or onward referral appointment if necessary
