Appointments

Fed up of the long wait time? So are we! Please help us to help you - if you are unable to attend your appointment or no longer need it, please contact the surgery immediately so that your appointment is available for your neighbour.

If every person who did not need their appointment any more cancelled it, then there would be at least 58 extra GP appointments and 54 nurse appointments available per month!


Staff Changes

We are delighted to welcome our new receptionist Sam to the team.


We currently have Medical Students working with us.

Medical students may be required to sit in during consultations. If you do not feel comfortable with this, please inform a member of staff when you book your appointment or as soon as possible on arrival.

Hospital Tests

Sometimes if you are referred to the Hospital, the Consultant or Specialist who sees you may request further tests, such as an X-Ray or an MRI.

The test result will be sent directly back to the Consultant or Specialist who requested the test, so please contact the Hospital directly to find out the results.


X-Ray

If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.

An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.

It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.


Chest X-Rays

In a small number of cases where you have had a chest x-ray, the specialist who looks at your x-ray result may feel that more detailed images are required, and you may be recalled for a CT scan.

In this situation, the Hospital will contact you by telephone a few days after your x-ray to arrange the CT scan.

Your CT scan will be reported by a specialist, and the results will be sent back to your GP for further action.
