Reception Triage And Advanced Access
Following government guidelines
we operate a receptionist triage system which allows the receptionist,
after asking a few simple questions, to direct you to the most appropriate health
care professional for your problem. This, in turn, frees up doctors' appointments
and allows us to operate Advanced Access, ie a 10-minute appointment with a doctor
of your choice, as soon as that can be arranged.
The doctors are
happy to carry out medicals, eg insurance and driving licence, by appointment
outside surgery hours. Please telephone the surgery for an appointment. These services are outside the scope of the NHS and may therefore be chargeable. Please ask the receptionist for the current fee when booking your appointment.
