EMERGENCIES

If you need urgent medical advice during practice opening hours, please phone the surgery on 01623 550254.

If you need to see a doctor urgently when we are closed, please phone 111.  An operator will take some details and pass you through to our local out of hours GP service.

APPOINTMENTS

You DO NOT NEED TO CALL AT 8 o'clock in the morning for routine appointments.  If your problem is urgent, please call reception as early as you are able to and you will be seen in our Urgent Care Clinic.  Routine appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.  Some appointments can be booked online - please speak to reception to obtain a username and password.

CANCELLING AN APPOINTMENT

If you no longer need your appointment, it helps us and other patients if you can cancel your appointment as soon as possible.  This way, we can make sure the appointment can be offered to another patient.  You can cancel at reception, by telephone (01623 550254) or online.

STAFF TRAINING

The practice will be closed on the 3rd Wednesday of the month for essential staff training.

 

Pharmacy First

Pharmacy First aims to improve patient access to GP appointments by encouraging patients with certain minor ailments to use the pharmacy for treatment rather than making an appointment at the surgery.

 

This will relieve the pressure on current appointment schedules and allow those patients with more urgent or serious needs to see the GP sooner. The scheme covers the whole of the NHS Nottinghamshire county area including community pharmacies and all GP practices.

 

Patients can self-refer to any NHS Nottinghamshire County community pharmacy or referral can be made by the GP or practice staff or by any other healthcare professional.
