Accessing GP Services

Patients requiring GP services should contact the Surgery by telephoning 01773 304700. 

The receptionist will ask the patient to provide a few basic details regarding the nature of the call and, if appropriate, put the patient on a GP’s triage list. This information is to help the GP prioritise the patients’ needs. 

The GP will telephone the patient (usually the same day, depending on the urgency and timing of the request). Up to 2 telephone attempts will made. Patients should have their telephone close by so as to avoid missing the call. The caller ID will be from a private/unknown caller.

The GP will ask the patient questions and determine the course of treatment. This may be the GP booking a face-to-face appointment with a GP, Advanced Clinical Practitioner, a Practice Pharmacist, a Nurse or another clinician. It could also be providing advice over the phone, issuing a prescription, or making a referral to another service for tests and/or investigations.

The Macmillan Beyond Diagnosis Gateway is a single point of access for all none-clinical needs a person with cancer may be experiencing. They work with anyone OVER 18 and can also support friends and family of people who have a cancer diagnosis. More details can be found at Opening Times/Help and Support 

For further information on why you are being asked to wait for your Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information on the GOV.UK website or this leaflet.

If you are travelling to a foreign country, you are likely to require vaccinations relating to the country you are visiting for your holiday.  You will need to complete a travel questionnaire.  Travel questionnaire forms are available from either of the surgery sites - Church Walk and Church Street. 

This form includes which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.  There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

You will need to complete the travel questionnaire 8 weeks before your holiday start date.  Please hand the completed form to the surgery receptionist (at either surgery site) The Practice Nurse will review the form to see what vaccinations are needed and when you need them.  The receptionist will then contact the patient to advise you of this and to book you in for an appointment with the Practice Nurse.  If you have not heard from the surgery a few days after handing the completed questionnaire in, please contact the surgery so that we can look into this and see what vaccinations (if any) you require 

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

PLEASE NOTE - The surgery are only able to offer basic travel vaccinations.  If you require Rabies, Hepatitis B, Japanese Encephalitis and some other non basic vaccines you will need to source these privately.  Please contact the surgery for further details.
