Duty Doctor

The Duty Doctor system allows the practice to deal with your urgent needs for that day. The Duty Doctor will be able to help you over the telephone or arrange an early appointment for you to be seen by the most appropriate clinician at the surgery.

The receptionist will ask some screening questions to patients requesting an on the day urgent appointment. This is for the patients benefit to place them with the right clinician and provide the best possible care. Please try to be as helpful as possible when asked these questions and be assured that all staff have a legal, ethical and contractual obligation to confidentiality and ensuring they act appropriately to protect patient information against improper disclosure.

Patients whose needs are urgent will be added to the Duty Doctor’s telephone list and will be contacted by the Duty Doctor to discuss their requirement. The doctor will help by recommending a suitable course of action.  This could be an appointment with a GP on that day, or later in the week, an appointment with our nursing team, a prescription and/or advice on what to do.

Patients will only be added to the Duty Doctor’s telephone list if it is an urgent problem that needs to be dealt with that day.

Patients will be told to keep their phone available for the duty doctor to call back; if the doctor cannot get through then a message will be left to advise to call back when free. 


Carers 

The Practice is offering free health checks for any carers caring for a relative or a friend. Please contact the practice to check if you are suitable for the free health check and flu jab.
