Not all medical problems need an appointment. We are able to discuss some of your problems on the phone.
We offer Telephone Appointment slots with the GP and the nurses, which are usually after the morning and evening surgeries.
We also offer a limited number of late telephone appointments for patients to speak to their Doctor out of their normal working day.
Examples when a telephone consultation may be appropriate:
- Medication queries
- Advice for minor medical problems
- Follow-up advice
- Results of investigations/tests
- Discuss hospital correspondance
- Support letters
- Medical certificate queries
We will not give out results or disclose sensitive information to anyone other than the patient themselves unless the patient has explicitly given consent for a nominated person to receive their results.
