The surgery runs an appointment system. Appointments may be made:
– In person by calling at the reception desk.
– By telephone. It is possible to make an appointment at either site on either of these numbers.
Unfortunately, except in cases of genuine emergency, you can not expect to be seen by a doctor or a nurse if you do not book an appointment.
Our Clinical Pharmacist Sarah Cawkwell offers a variety of appointments and specialises in areas such as hypertension. Our reception team are trained to navigate your care to the most appropriate clinician based on the information you provide.
Our highly trained Nurse Practitioners offer a variety off appointments and are able to independently prescribe. Our reception team are trained to navigate your care to the most appropriate clinician based on the information you provide.
To book an appointment to see a practice nurse, please telephone the above number. Generally, it is not possible to specify a particular nurse as their availabilities vary and who you see will depend, to some extent, on what service you need. For example, our hypertension clinic is run by only two of our practice nurses. Please indicate to the receptionist what service you need at the time of booking.
Our health care assistants run a number of different clinics across both surgery sites and assist the GP and Nursing Staff with activities such as dressings and vaccinations.
