For all urgent same day appointments please continue to contact the Practice on the day.
We will be offering a range of appointments with various clinicians to include:
- Nurse Practitioner
- Emergency Care Practitioner
- Practice Nurse
These clinicians have access to a doctor should here be a need to refer a patient for further care.
Our Reception team have been trained to signpost patients to the most appropriate clinician. In order to do this effectively they have been asked by our doctors to ask patients what their presenting condition is.
IMPROVING PATIENT ACCESS TO CLINICIANS
Our Practice is engaging in a pilot scheme providing improved access for patients to a range of healthcare professionals. Working within a group of eight local Practices, we will be offering a range of appointments each weekday evening between 18:30 and 20:00 and during selected times at weekends, to registered patients, in at least one of the participating Practices. Please contact our reception team at Old Mill or Millgates for more details.
