We currently have 2 full time GPs; Dr Richard Wong and Dr Craig Unwin and 2 part time GPs; Dr Natalie Palmer and Dr Lynne Teinert who are supported by our Nurse Practitioners Sister Caroline Andrews and Sister Hayley Brown in addition to Practice Nurses, Clinical Pharmacist, GP Assistant and Health Care Assistants.
How does our Appointment system work?
Every day we offer have a mix of face to face appointments and telephone appointments. Our Patient Advisors need to offer you the most appropriate appointment to deal with your problem. You may not always need a face to face appointment with a GP/Nurse at the surgery.
Telephone consultations, extended access appointments or being directed to pharmacy or a local walk-in centre are all options that are available. Our Patient Advisors will need to ask you for details of the problem you are calling with, this is to enable use to direct you to the most appropriate clinician.
For minor symptoms less than 3 days old, we would encourage you to consult your local pharmacy or see our self-care section on our website.
Please be considerate to other patients and remember 1 APPOINTMENT IS FOR 1 PROBLEM AND 1 PATIENT. Asking the GP to deal with multiple problems or see additional family members, in one 10 minute appointment can cause the GP to run late which has an impact on other patients.
Should you turn up 10 minutes or later for your appointment you will not be seen and your appointment will be rescheduled.
Further information is available at the surgery.
