Noticeboard

Thursday 9th November


We would like to sincerely apologise to our patients who were trying to contact us during our closure afternoon. The Surgery was closed for training as per guidance from the CCG. We had instructed our telephone provider to change our answerphone message, and provide a mobile telephone number for one of our GPs, so patients who needed urgent medical attention could contact them. Unfortunately despite confirmation and assurance from our provider earlier in the day, the message was not changed until late in the afternoon. We can only apologise for the inconvenience caused. Should you like to discuss this matter further, please contact the surgery and leave your details. Our Practice Manager will contact you.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
