 Improving Appointments

We are continuing to work on improving your access to doctors, within the confines of our current space. The next step is to make better use of the available rooms, so we are changing the way we work - although you may not notice any difference.

The doctors will be spreading out their surgery appointments & visits. This will make appointments available spread out across the whole day, and also means that it becomes possible to book visits in advance, rather than just urgently. We hope this will mean a better service for people who are unable to get out of the house, in that they have a better chance of seeing their regular doctor. Obviously visits take longer than surgery appointments, so we hope everyone will make every effort to come into surgery, except those who are medically unable to do so.

There is no change to how you book to see or speak to a doctor or nurse, it's just that the doctors are managing their time differently, and this will run from the 5th January.
