PRACTICE INFORMATION - updates and changes to services    In order to provide flu vaccination programme information on our home page you will now find the updates and changes to practice services in the clinics and services section of our website. 

Update 24 Sept 2020    -  staffing and telephone issues  

Due to unforseen staffing problems we are limiting calls to urgent only.  We apologise for this and hope to return to normal circumstances as soon as possible.   

Unfortunately we are also experiencing ongoing intermittent faults with our telephone system.  We are in contact with our supplier to try to resolve these as quickly as possible.    

We realise how frustrating this will be if you are trying to contact us and appreciate your understanding and co-operation.   Thank 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 AND you will be in the area for less than three months you may be seen as a temporary patient.  This is at the GP practice's discretion.  Alternatively, you may be asked to go directly to the hospital.

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.

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.

It is our usual practice to accept temporary patients every second week, on a rota basis with Ladywell Medical Centre (West), with whom we share our building.  Should you attend when it is not our week to take temporary patients you may be asked to attend the West wing.  If you are staying with a family member/friend who is a patient at this Practice, you would be seen here, regardless of whose week it was to take temporary residents.  Please confirm this when you come to reception.
