** CHANGES TO GP APPOINTMENTS - OCTOBER 2019 **
From October we have made changes to GP appointments. Patients were asking for greater availability of afternoon appointments. The GP's will therefore work fewer mornings in favour of working more afternoons. Patients may therefore find that their GP isn't available certain mornings of the week but hopefully patients will find the greater availability of afternoon appointments helpful.
GP & NURSE EDUCATIONAL DAYS
Ipswich & East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group organise monthly training events for practices across Suffolk. We will be closed for clinics from 1pm on the following days so our doctors and nurses can attend these events:
4th March 2020, 2nd April 2020, 6th May 2020, 10th June 2020, 10th September 2020, 7th October 2020, 19th November 2020 & 2nd December 2020
The telephones will be diverted to the Out of Hours provider, who will be covering any clinical emergencies.
Please dial 111 if you need medical assistance.
If your problem is life threatening dial 999. The Reception and Dispensary will continue to be open for queries and medication collection BUT PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO CLINICIAN ON SITE.
Appointments are available with an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. They are able to deal with many of the problems you would normally take to a doctor. They can initiate treatments, prescribe medication and refer you to other health professionals such as hospital consultants.
Every patient is allocated a 'NAMED GP'. If you have 'repeat medication' your repeat prescription slip will show your 'named accountable GP'. We ensure that any letters that you receive from the practice indicate your 'named GP'. All new patients and those over 75 will have been contacted to inform them of their 'named GP'. Any patients that do not know their 'named GP' are welcome to ask at reception when visiting or telephoning the practice
