How do I book an appointment?
We have pre-bookable appointments available with our GP’s, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, and Health Care Assistants. You can book these with the Reception Team, either in surgery or over the phone, and you can book GP appointments online. If you have access already please click on the link at the bottom of the page to book an appointment
If you are acutely unwell and feel you need to see a GP urgently you should call the surgery. If there are no pre- bookable appointments left, you can receive a phone call from a GP. They will assess your condition and may be able to help you over the phone, or they may prescribe medication, and if they feel it is necessary they may ask you to attend the surgery.
Can I see a Nurse practitioner?
Our Nurse Practitioners have undertaken specialist training to provide treatment and advice for many problems which you may have seen a doctor for in the past.
They can assess and examine you, make a diagnosis and provide advice and treatment including a prescription if required. They can make referrals to hospital doctors or other health care professionals, and admit patients into hospital when necessary.
The Reception Staff will be able to advise if the Nurse Practitioner can help you.
Why does the receptionist need to ask about my appointment?
The Receptionists ask about the reason for your appointment to ensure you receive the most appropriate medical care from the most appropriate person within the appropriate timeframe. Some queries can be dealt with either by someone else in the practice or by another service or organisation and this may save you time and save a GP appointment. The Reception Staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as all the clinical staff.
How do I order my prescription?
Repeat prescriptions can be ordered online or by taking your repeat slip into the surgery.
If you have not yet registered for online access yet please call into the surgery with some ID and the staff will issue you with your log in details.
If you collect your medication from our Dispensary please remember that all repeat prescriptions take three working days from date of order being received at the surgery.
If you collect your medication from a local chemist, they require 7 days from receipt of your order.
Stoptober is the 28-day stop smoking challenge from PHE that encourages and supports smokers across England towards quitting for good. Stoptober is based on the insight that if you can stop smoking for 28-days, you are five times more likely to be able to stay quit for good. The campaign chunks down the quitting process, presents it as a more manageable 28 days and rallies people around a specific date to get started.
Stoptober encourages as many smokers as possible to prepare to quit from 1 October by taking part in the campaign and utilising the range of free resources and support available. Throughout October the campaign will continue to recruit smokers to take part, whilst also encouraging and supporting people to quit through the 28-day smoke-free journey.
