Winter Services Posted on 3 Jan 2018

Additional GP capacity 

Over the next two months we are working with NHS England to offer extra GP appointments.  This is because we know that there are times you want to be able to see a GP at short notice.  We also know that over winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses which require more than a pharmacy but don’t need emergency treatment.

The extra appointments can be accessed via the usual triage system.  Phone reception on 01608 661845 and the Duty Doctor will phone you back and discuss your needs.  If we can’t help you over the telephone we will book you in to an appointment.

If you haven’t yet signed up for GP Online Services simply call into the practice with two forms of photo ID and proof of address.  We can sign you up there and then.  GP Online Services makes it easy to book appointments online, request repeat prescriptions and view some of your medical records.  Ask at reception for more details.

 If you are not able to attend an appointment you have booked, for whatever reason, please let us know.  We can then offer that appointment to someone else that needs it.
