Cancellations
There are times when you may decide you don’t need to see the Doctor after all. Perhaps a problem has cropped up at short notice and you can’t attend. Whatever the reason, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let us know and we can offer your appointment to someone else. Ring the main surgery number, send a fax, use our 24hr Cancellation Hotline on 01270 376888.

Telephone Advice

If you need advice please phone the surgery. Please note that patients may be put down for a telephone call with the Advanced Practitioners who have taken over the triage to help the GP’s. They may help over the phone by giving advice, prescribing medications, booking appointments with the GP or nurse or asking the patient to come and see the Advanced Nurse Practitioner themselves depending on the problem.

Home Visits
The Medical Centre has all the facilities needed for examination, investigation and treatment. It is in your best interests to attend the surgery if at all possible. Housebound patients should request visits before 10:30am. Home visit and urgent requests may be handled by a doctor or triage nurse to assess the priority of the case and decide the best course of action. This could include advice only, attending an emergency surgery or a home visit.

Emergencies Outside Normal Surgery Hours

These appointments are for patients who cannot wait over the weekend for ”acute” problems. Therefore these appointments are not for medication reviews or routine appointments. Anyone needing urgent care for example with chest pain will need to go to A&E.

We can be contacted direct on 01270 273666. Staffed by GPs and Nurses, the staff will either offer advice, invite you to attend the Centre for treatment or, in exceptional circumstances, arrange for a home visit.

PLEASE NOTE this is not a drop-in centre. It is there to deal with urgent cases, which need immediate attention and attendance is by appointment only.

Outside normal hours it is very unlikely you will be seen by your own doctor. All doctors & nurses keep accurate records of every patient seen and details will be forwarded to your own doctor.

You can also call NHS 111 for medical advice or help outside of your surgery opening hours, allowing you to get help if needed, It is not an emergency 999 and you will not be seen by a GP or nurse, you will simply speak to someone and get advice.
