Click here to Access the on-line appointment system

Patients are reminded that they can have on-line access so you can organise your medical centre activities (booking appointments or requesting repeat prescriptions) at a time that is convenient to you.

Remember that on-the-day appointments are released on-line for patients every day-so you can book your own appointment on-line rather telephone the practice during the busiest periods.  You can also book telephone aconsultations to speak to a GP about an on-going issue.  Telephone consultations are not 'Face to Face' so make sure you book the correct appointment.

Speak to a Receptionist about how to obtain an on-line account.

To promote national self care week (14th to 20th November 2016) we have provided information to support you to self care. See the SELF CARE section to the right.

 TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS

TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS WITH GPs ARE FOR 5 MINUTES AND ARE NOT FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS.  THESE TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS ARE BEST USED TO TALK ABOUT TEST RESULTS OR TO FOLLOW UP ON SIMPLE ISSUES.  Please DO NOT ATTEND TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS as the doctor may be working at a different location and may not be at the Practice that day.

Note about the Telephone system

The telephone system can handle more simultaneous callers in the morning when we are very busy and it will let patients know where they are in the queue. Patients can leave messages when the queries about their blood results or if they have a questions about a referral.

Blood test and other queries line: Contact the practice between 09:30 – 13:00 Monday to Friday! (Please check under 'New Services' for more details)

Community Nurses

District Nursing Services

http://www.clch.nhs.uk/services/district-nursing.aspx

District nursing provides nursing assessments and care for housebound patients with a physical healthcare need. We see patients at home and in residential care settings. The service supports and encourages people with disabilities and long-term conditions to recover their health, cope with health problems, and achieve the best possible quality of independent life.

The district nursing teams work closely with hospitals, GPs, social services and other healthcare teams involved in our patients care. They also work closely with physiotherapists and occupational therapists, social workers, Macmillan/Marie Curie and other specialist health care professionals to provide care to meet a wide range of health care needs.

The District Nursing team includes Community Matrons; who are nurses with additional skills to support people with multiple and complex health needs. They play a central role in assessment, care planning, co-ordination and evaluation of nursing care to ensure patients get all the help and support they need.

Hours

Seven days a week 08:00 - 20:00 (night service outside these hours, see below).

District Nursing Night Service

The team follow on from the day service to ensure people have 24 hour access to care, support and advice, helping to give patients more flexibility around the time of visits.
