We are participating in a national incentive to offer evening and weekend appointments to make it easier for you to see a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional at a time more convenient to you between 6.30pm – 8pm Monday to Friday and at the various hours at the weekend. The aim of the national scheme is to help people who may find it difficult to see a healthcare professional during the traditional surgery opening hours of 8.30am-6.30pm Monday to Friday.
We are working in partnership across the local area so you may not see a clinician from this practice. The clinician will have access to a summary but not your full notes so appointments are better suited to new conditions or single issue enquiries. The practice will receive a full summary of your consultation and any actions resulting from it the next morning.
Once the benefits of this service have been assessed it may result in longer opening hours being available on a more permanent basis.
Please contact us by phone for details on the locations of the clinics and how to book an evening or weekend appointment.
Please call after 2.30pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
Our doctors are frequently asked to provide private or ‘To Whom it May Concern’ letters or reports for third parties. The preparation of these letters or reports is not covered by the NHS and the doctor must complete them during their own time and as such there is a fee payable (£15). This fee is payable at the time of the request, if however the letter is very detailed an additional charge may be required. The letter can be amended by the surgery, as appropriate. We will aim to have this ready within 5 working days. All letters require the doctor to review a patient’s medical records to ensure that the information provided is correct.
