Can another Healthcare Professional help?

Do you need to see the GP?

Sometimes the GP is not the most appropriate Healthcare Professional to deal with your ailment. Please see the information on see a Doctor or Healthcare Professional, which might help you decide whether a GP appointment is truly necessary or whether it might be better for you to see a Pharmacist, Optician, Dentist or other Healthcare Professional. You can even self-refer for some services without seeing your GP.

  • Heavy bleeding or deep lacerations

When you make an appointment do let us know if you want someone to accompany you during an examination.

We offer a mixed economy of appointments to meet our patient needs. If your condition is not urgent, we aim to offer you an appointment as quickly as possible. You will be offered the first available appointment with the duty doctor for the Practice. If no appointments are available we will add you to a cancellation list.

Please help us

If you are not able to attend your appointment please let us know in time so that the time can be used for someone else. If you are late for an appointment you may be asked to re-book.

Appointments

Advance booking

A number of appointments are allocated in advance for patients who wish to book 3-4 weeks ahead. This includes the weekly evening surgery.

We will do all we can to accommodate your request for a particular doctor.

Should there be no advance appointments left for the surgery you wish to attend you will be offered an appointment with another doctor working for the Practice or offered an alternative date if available.

Telephoning a Doctor or Nurse for advice

We can arrange for a doctor or nurse to telephone you. Please call the reception office after 10:30am

Urgent appointments

If your condition is urgent, you may be asked to provide more details of your symptoms and you can expect to see the duty GP on the same day. You may receive a telephone consultation from either a Doctor or Nurse beforehand.

Nursing appointments

Most Nursing appointments are pre-booked up to 6 weeks in advance. We do hold some appointments to be booked on the day.

These can be made via reception and offer an alternative choice for patients presenting with immediate needs.

Can I bring someone to accompany me to the Appointment?

We are generally very happy for patients to bring with them a carer, relative or even a friend. This often helps, particularly when they know you well and it allows them to tell us any observations they would make about you, which can help us in undertaking our assessment. Ultimately this will lead us more quickly to make an accurate diagnosis and therefore help you more.

Also, having someone with you means they can prompt you to ask questions that you may have forgotten, and after the appointment they can help in reminding you what was discussed.

Occasionally we might ask for them to leave but this would be unusual.

If you require interpretation services please contact us in advance of you appointment and we will arrange this.

If you have a suspected infectious disease

Please inform reception if you suspect an infectious disease, as this will enable us to deal with it appropriately during your visit to protect you, other patients and staff. 

Giving Consent for Treatment

You have the right to accept or refuse treatment that is offered to you, and not to be given any physical examination or treatment unless you have given valid consent. If you do not have the capacity to do so, consent must be obtained from a person legally able to act on your behalf, or the treatment must be in your best interests.

Your valid consent (agreement to the course of action) is needed for the treatment that’s offered to you before any physical examinations or treatment can be given. If you haven’t given your consent, you can accept or refuse treatment that’s offered to you.

It’s important to be involved in decisions about your treatment and to be given information to help you choose the right treatment. When making treatment choices, you’ll often discuss the options with your doctor or another healthcare professional.
