Practice Nurses, Practice Pharmacist and Health Care Assistant
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse, practice pharmacist rather than a doctor - examples of this could be for Asthma, COPD and Diabetes reviews and child immunisations. Practice nurses and our practice pharmacist are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly. Our Health Care Assistant can take bloods and check and record your BP. She is also qulaified to conduct NHS Health Checks. She can administer Shingles, Flu, Pneumonia and B12 injections and vaccinations. Making appropriate use of clinician appointments will get patients seen earlier in many cases, leading to what we hope will be higher rates of patient satisfaction.
To make an appointment call the surgery during opening times.
Appointments can also be made to have routine blood tests taken with the phlebotomist on Monday and Thursday mornings at the surgery.
Patients can also book telephone appointments for the doctor to call you back.

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
Patients who repeatedly miss appointments without cancelling them will receive a warning from the Practice, and may be asked to find an alternative service if there is no change. Clinician time is important and we should do our best to keep appointments and inform the surgery of cancelations as soon as possible.
