The pressure on GP appointments is becoming extremely difficult to manage.
We are therefore changing how we book appointments.
From Monday 27th February 2017 you will be asked for a brief description of why you want to be seen and an appointment or telephone call will be offered with the most appropriate clinician
You are still able to book routine medical appointments up to 4 weeks in advance, but please note these are limited and may not always be available for booking
Dr Hannon is currently off ill and won’t be back until 2017. Whilst she is off Dr Jan and Dr Somarathi have increased their days in surgery from 2 to 3 each.
We have two locum GPs, one covering Mondays and one covering Fridays. Usually Dr Krishnappa on a Monday and Dr Oniah on a Friday, but others may cover if they are not available.
We also have an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) Paula Drury who can see acute illnesses, e.g. chest infections, ear infections, urine infections, rashes etc. She can prescribe and is available of Thursday and Friday mornings most weeks until Christmas, so please don’t be offended if the reception staff ask the reason for your appointment as we need to direct you to the most appropriate clinician for your needs.
