Birthday Annual Review

From April 2014 we will be changing the way we manage patients with long term health conditions.      Patients who have conditions such as diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypothyroidism, cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure will have a single review for all their long term medical problems each year in the month of their birthday .  This will reduce the number of visits patients have to make to have their long term conditions monitored which we hope will be much more convenient.  We would encourage you to contact the practice around the time of your birthday to book a Birthday Review  appointment if this applies to you.

Transferring from the old system to a birthday review system is going to be challenging and may result in some patients being seen earlier or later than they initially expected.  The doctors would like to thank all their patients for their support whilst we are implementing these changes

Appointments

diaryWe are able to offer a comprehensive range of appointments. All appointments can be booked by ringing our main switchboard number on 01278 411520. By providing the receptionist with adequate information, they will then be able to offer you an appointment with the most appropriate clinician.

Same Day Access Appointments are available with the Duty Doctor on a daily basis.  These appointments are for patients who have an acute medical problem that needs urgent assessment/treatment.

If your condition is non-urgent, you can normally expect to see a GP within one to two weeks, though you may have to wait longer if you want to see a particular GP.   Non-urgent (routine) appointments are available to book up to six weeks in advance with a Doctor of your choice.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners based in our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions and they are qualified to prescribe from a range of medicines.

Let us know if more than one person in the family needs to be seen. We can give you a longer appointment if necessary. Tell us if you want someone to accompany you during an examination or a private room to discuss any matters.
