In an effort to improve the care and service we give our patients we offer telephone consultations for those patients who may not necessarily need to come to the surgery. These telephone appointments can be booked anything up to two weeks in advance. They are designed for patients to speak to the doctor and nurses for approximately five minutes about ailments/medical problems that do not have to be face to face e.g. medication reviews, questions about medications, results, follow ups where the GP advises that a discussion over the phone is sufficient.
These telephone calls are NOT intended for patients to purely get REPEAT prescriptions via the GP. Please see our note on precriptions on how to get them.
Our receptionists will offer this type of consultation as an alternative to coming into the practice.
