Doctor and Practice Nurse Appointments
Our system for booking appointments is changing. The practice will now release routine doctor and practice nurse appointments on a fortnightly basis instead of the six week basis we worked with previously.
This is to try and ensure patients don't have longer than 2 weeks to wait for a routine appointment and hopefully to help patients remember they have appointments and cut the number of patients who fail to attend and waste appointments.
Anyone who feels they need to be seen by a clinician more quickly than our first routine appointment will be asked for details of their issue by the reception staff so that they can be directed appropriately to the correct member of the clinical team.
NHS GP resources are scarce - remember many conditions can be dealt with by the pharmacist, optician or dentist.
