Our appointment system is changing

From 5th November 2018 we will be implementing a new appointment system to try to improve our services to patients.

 

We will no longer book GP appointments 4 weeks in advance.

 

In line with these changes, as of Monday 5th November advanced appointments with our GP’s will only be available to book 2 weeks in advance. We believe this will benefit our patients in the following ways:

  • A reduction in our current ‘did not attend’ (DNA) rates and appointment wastage.
  • Shorter waiting times to see a GP.

 

Urgent/Same Day Appointments:

 

The system for accessing these appointments will remain the same, be sure to inform the Receptionist straight away that an urgent/same day appointment is required. These are available each day for patients whose medical condition requires urgent treatment and cannot reasonably wait for a routine appointment. The Receptionist will ask you for brief details of your symptoms. You will then be put into the queue for a triage call with one of our Nursing team. They will then call you on the provided number to assess your needs and decide the best course of action.

 

Please note that none of the above changes will affect the way in which Nursing and Healthcare Assistant appointments are currently booked.

 

Mondays and Fridays are usually our busiest days – if you do not need to be seen urgently you may prefer to choose a different day to contact us.

 

GP appointments can now be booked online: https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk/

 

  

OFFER OF SHINGLES VACCINE ( posted on Aug 3, 2018 )

 

 

Shingles (also known as herpes zoster) can be a very painful nerve and skin condition and is more common among older people.  There is now a vaccine that can reduce your chance of getting shingles, or, if you do get shingles, it can reduce how severe or long lasting the symptoms can be.

 

Like most vaccinations, it will be given as an injection in your upper arm.  This is a one-off vaccine and you do not need to get it more than once in your lifetime.

 

Limited supplies have been made available to GP Practices to immunize specific groups of patients. To find out if you are in one of the specific groups or for further information please visit www.shinglesaware.co.uk
