Noticeboard

The practice will be open on both bank holidays in May - Friday 8th & Monday 25th.  Please note the prescription line will not be open for routine prescriptions.  Any emergency prescription requests can be made via the main line.

Test Results
Please telephone for test results between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.

Appointments
You may see the Doctor of your choice by appointment.   Please telephone or speak to the receptionist a few days in advance for routine appointments.   Urgent cases will be seen the same day, but it is helpful if you telephone in the morning.   Please try to give the receptionists any information which they may ask for, as this helps the Doctor assess your request

Home Visits
Please make every effort to come to the Surgery as this gives the Doctor more time and better facilities to deal with your problem.   If you are too ill to attend the Surgery it is helpful if you can telephone your request for a home visit as early as possible in the morning, ideally before 9.30am.

Cancelling your Appointment
Unfortunately, we continue to have a number of patients failing to attend appointments, which has an adverse affect on appointments available for other patients. 

During the month of February , there were 173 missed appointments, which equates to 29  hours of lost consultation time.

If you are unable to attend an appointment, it is important to let reception know in order to allow the appointment to be offered to another patient.  We thank you for your co-operation in this respect. 

Exciting News

We are delighted to inform our patients of a forthcoming extension to the practice.  Work will commence on 6th March 2020 for a number of weeks to extend our clinical consulting space.

 

This will allow additional consulting space for our currently expanding multi-disciplinary team members and additional junior doctors, all of which will benefit our patients.

 

We appreciate your forbearance during this time of potential disruption.

Other Services

immuniseCHRONIC DISEASE MONITORING:  patients living with a long term condition such as asthma, COPD, diabetes, heart disease etc are invited for an annual check with a member of our nursing team.  Your invite will ask you to make an appointment for Clinic A, B or C.  Please inform the Receptionist, since this determines the appointment length and who you will see.

CERVICAL SMEARS:  in general, women aged between 25 and 65 years are strongly advised to have a smear test once every three years.   This can be done by making a “smear appointment” with the Treatment Room Nurse or Practice Nurse.  You may receive a reminder letter if your smear is due. 

FAMILY PLANNING:  can be discussed with the Practice Nurse or at routine GP appointments.  Dr McLaughlin and Dr Currans both provide a coil fitting service, if you wish to discuss this further make a routine appointment with either of them.

MINOR SURGERY:  certain GPs carry out procedures such as joint injections, removal of cysts, moles and wart treatments at the Surgery in Station Road by arrangement. 

INR CLINICS: we currently run two INR clinics per week.  Please note, there is a waiting list for this service.
