Phone Doctor

We are trialling having a designated doctor answering phone calls from patients every Monday morning. The new service will allow you to talk about your symptoms with the GP before an appointment is made . This gives the GP the opportunity of assessing the best course of action and identifying any pre-work (e.g. blood test or x-ray ) that might need to be done prior to you coming into the practice. It may also result in the problem being resolved over the phone , and avoiding you having to come down and waiting at the medical centre . If not, the GP can then go ahead and book an urgent appointment for you . This free service will be available on Mondays from 8.30 — 9.30 am.
