Online Appointments Booking and Repeat Prescription Ordering

 

You can now have access to our appointments system online. By using this system you will be able to book an appointment with a GP up to six weeks in advance (no bookings for Same Day appointments).

You can also have access to the new Repeat Prescription ordering facility.

The new system will allow you to choose the medication from your medical record (repeat medication screen only) rather than you having to type into the current form on the website or an email.

The new system will require you to have a user name and password which will then allow you to log on to the practice clinical system and see a list of your medications with dates when they were last issued to you.

To find out more and obtain a user name and password please see one of the reception Team. You will need Photographic identification in order to register for this service.

Utilising this service will enable you to access both appointments and prescriptions 24 hours a day.

APPOINTMENTS

doctorAs this is a group practice you may consult any of the doctors but it is in your interest to stay with one doctor for each period of illness.  Routine appointments may be made in advance (maximum six weeks) which will enable us to offer you a time more suitable for your requirements. 

The doctors and nurse practitioners offer routine telephone consultations for instances which do not require a physical examination.  All consultations are by appointment and these can be made by telephoning 01375 480000 or calling into the surgery. 

In order to make the best use of a clinician’s time you may be asked some questions when you are making the appointment.  This is so we can offer you a consultation with the most appropriate person to deal with your condition (ie doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse).

Please remember that an appointment is for one patient only.  If you cannot keep your appointment, kindly let us know as another patient will always take advantage of your cancellation. 

EMERGENCIES

If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain or severe bleeding call an ambulance (999) before calling the surgery.
