Appointments (Changes August 2015)
We listened to you when you said that you don’t like calling always at 0830 for appointments and we have recruited new staff to increase the amount of appointments we have available both pre-bookable and on the day. We now have a Nurse Practitioner who can see all types of conditions who is highly trained and able to prescribe independently.
When you ring the surgery for your test results, the reception staff will not be able to give you any of your results, but will arrange for a nurse to ring you back.
