Who's who in your practice?

We aim to improve the understanding of the different professionals working in a general practice, including the skills, experience and benefits that different roles bring to patient care. Services in general practice and the community are being transformed to make it easier for patients to access a wider range of help from general practice, closer to home by phone or online. When you contact your practice for an appointment, you’ll often expect to speak directly with a GP in the first instance, even if that may not be the most appropriate person to help you. In addition to the excellent non-clinical support staff, the general practice team has expanded to include a wide range of healthcare professionals who work alongside GPs and nurses to ensure patients receive the care they need as quickly as possible. This includes clinical pharmacists, physiotherapists, physician associates, social prescribing link workers and many more. Over the last few years general practice has gone through many changes, with more than 19,000 staff being recruited nationally. These new roles are part of the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) and have already made a real impact in general practice and in the community delivering care to patients.
Every GP practice is different, each offering different healthcare professionals who can support delivery of your care, so you access the most appropriate care and services from the right healthcare professional.

How it Works

Stress-Free Consultations

Online consultation is a modern and effective way to get the healthcare you need faster, quicker, easier, and more conveniently. You can get advice and information through online consultation or arrange an appointment without having to wait on the phone or come into the surgery for non-urgent requests. Access online consultation through your device and visit your practice page or use our app. Online consultations are not an emergency service. If it is a medical emergency, call 999. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured, and their life is at risk. If you are worried about a medical concern that isn’t an emergency, but you’re not sure what to do, visit www.111.nhs.uk or call 111 to speak to a fully trained adviser. You can find out more information about getting help at home from the NHS. To start using our Online Consult system, see the online form on the link below. You can find out about the most common health problems, see information leaflets, check your symptoms, and request administrative tasks (like letters, sick notes and test results). You will see general NHS-approved health advice for the condition you are concerned about so you can look after yourself at home. You can also get advice from a pharmacy. Please answer the questions accurately so we can find the best way to help you. You will get a response from our surgery by the end of the next working day (or earlier) by phone call, text message, or email. If you have any problems with online consultation, ring our admin team on 01204 884710 after 10 am from Monday to Friday, and they will help you. You can also ask for an appointment from one of our clinicians by filling out the online form. The doctor or clinician may want to see you on a video call. After being triaged, you will be offered a face-to-face appointment if you need one. To contact our practice about your problem, you must be a patient at our surgery living in the UK.

Urgent Appointments & Extended Hours

Urgent appointments

If you find you need an urgent appointment, could you please contact the surgery as soon as possible.
We do offer a triage system at the surgery for urgent appointment requests. This system requires the receptionist to take as much detail as possible about your illness. This will then be immediately passed through to the doctor to triage. You will then be called back by either the doctor or receptionist with an appointment/advice. 
Extended hours

We hold sessions outside the normal working day and these are intended for those patients who are working full-time and cannot come to appointments during the normal working day.
Doctor sessions from 7:30am – 8:00am & 6:30pm – 7:10pm Nurse sessions from 7:30am – 8:00am & 6:30pm – 7:10pm
