GP Demand


Test Results 

Please telephone for test results between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday on 01292 671444. 

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. If you are unable to attend an appointment, it is important to let reception know.  We thank you for your co-operation in this respect.

DENTAL PROBLEMS

The GP is not the most appropriate person to assess any dental issues.  If you are suffering with mouth ulcers, dental pain or abscess, please visit your Dentist.  Your Dentist will be able to prescribe required medication.

 

EYE PROBLEMS

Similarly, the local Opticians are able to treat eye problems such as sore, itchy, watery, sticky or red eyes.  You can be seen by your Optician on an urgent basis if required and will be provided with any relevant medication or referred to hospital if appropriate.
