Types of appointment available
We have an excellent multi- disciplinary team of health professionals to help you with every aspect of your healthcare. Appointments with our team are available Monday-Friday 8am-6:30pm, speak to our Care Navigation Team on 01962 871730 for more information.
We encourage our patients to see or speak with their own GP. When contacting the surgery you will be asked for some medical information by the Care Navigation team to allow them to sign post you to the most appropriate service. Your GP can offer both face to face and telephone appointments. The majority of clinicians appointments are 10 minute duration. We ask that you try to observe the "one appointment, one problem" ethos. We strive to deal with each medical problem to the highest standard and this proves to be impossible if we are asked to deal with a number of problems in one appointment slot.
Our Practice Nurses are qualified in specific specialist areas.
They offer appointments for Asthma, Diabetes, COPD, Sexual Health, Travel & Contraception. Practice nurses complete annual reviews, diagnose conditions and offer further appointments to help you manage your care.
We are expanding our multi- disciplinary team and are proud to offer our patients appointments with a range of new specialists such as our Back & Joint pain clinic with our Chiropractor, Hearing Services with an Audiologist and Social Prescribing with our Social Prescriber.
Please speak to our reception team for more information.
