Noticeboard

Emergencies
If you have severe chest pain, and feel that you are in danger of collapsing, please call 999 directly. Emergency Out of Hours – 0300 123 3211.

Test Results
We will normally contact you directly if you need to see a doctor to get the results of any tests. Alternatively you may have been told to book a follow-up appointment. If you do need to find out the result directly, and would like to save an appointment for another patient to use, please ring between 15:00 and 18:00.

Home Visits
Please telephone requests before 10:30 am if possible. This will enable the doctors to plan their house visits and avoid delays. DO THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS FACILITY as it uses a lot more of the doctor’s time.

 

Minor illnesses

Every year, millions of us visit our GP with minor health problems that our local pharmacist could resolve.

Visits to the GP for minor ailments add up to 57 million consultations a year. But by visiting your pharmacy instead, you could save yourself time and trouble.

Instead of booking and waiting for a GP appointment, you can visit your local pharmacist any time: just walk in.

All pharmacists can recognise many common health complaints. They can give advice or, where appropriate, medicines that will help to clear up the problem. If your problem is more serious and needs the attention of a GP, your pharmacist will recognise this and advise you to see your GP.

What’s more, many pharmacies are open in the evenings and on the weekends.

If everybody went to a pharmacist with common health problems, more time would be freed for our GPs. This might make it easier to get a convenient appointment with your GP next time you need one.
