Winter pressures are when an increase in illness during the winter months lead to an increase in demand for GP appointments. During this time we may restrict some of our services.
We would like to notify our patients that our Reception Team will be asking you some very brief details regarding your request for an appointment.
Please indicate the nature and urgency of your problem so we can help you as efficiently as possible.
This will ensure that you are booked in with the correct Healthcare Professional and that the quickest route to treatment or advice is taken.
We encourage the use of self help and seeking advice from a pharmacist before contacting the GP. You can find local services and self-help information from the www.nhs.uk website.
If you are calling for test results, please call between 1-3pm. If you have had a test or investigation performed under a Consultant at the hospital we are unable to give you the result, you will need to contact the hospital directly.
If you have a query with a referral or insurance report please contact the Medical Secretaries on 01252 371715. There is no need to speak to a GP if you have an on-going referral query.
