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.

Do you look after someone?

Carers Hub A revised Carers Hub information sheet of available carer services during the coronavirus along with a list of useful telephone numbers

Do you look after someone who cannot get by without your help?

Do you look after someone, a friend, a relative or a neighbour who, due to an illness, disability, frailty, poor mental health or substance misuse, would struggle without your support?

Information on help and support for carers can be found here

It is important you let the practice know if you look after someone.  We can add you to our Carer Register for you to gain access to information and support, including our Carer Champions at the practice.  Carer Champions help with the identification of carers, act as a voice for carers and are a key point of contact for carer information.

Our Carer Champions are Jayne Daykin and Diane Rowley and both are keen to provide a quality service and help carers as much as possible.  If they are not available at the time of your query, please leave a message and they will contact you at the earliest possible convenience. By completing this questionnaire and returning it to the practice, you can help us to monitor and improve our service.
