Noticeboard

On Friday 3 March we will be trialling a new telephone system.

If you call the surgery and the lines are busy you will receive a message telling you where you are in the queue, you can then make the decision to either call back later or continue hold.  As soon as a Receptionist is free they will take your call.

We are going to see how this works for patients and staff for a three month period and then review this system at the end of May.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
