Changes to Appointment System 1/8/16
The GP’s are trying a new system for patients asking for an urgent appointment, where they will ring you back before 10am and discuss your symptoms and plan how best to help you.
They also want to tighten up their personal list system. Patient’s should be booked in with their own GP whenever possible, for both telephone and routine appointments unless their own GP is away from surgery. This is for continuity of care.
It is with great sadness that Dr Tracey Wightman is leaving the Practice on 29/7/16 as she is moving back to Scotland. Her patients will automatically be registered with a new GP Dr Shelley Oliver who joins the Practice on 3/8/16.
