USING THE NHS WISELY


There are many health problems which can be treated safely without seeing a doctor or nurse. Many services are available direct to patients and these are often as fast as seeing your GP. It is important that everyone makes use of these great services to ensure that your local GP and A+E services are available for serious health problems

 

We are asking our receptionists as your first point of contact with the surgery to ask you for a brief idea of your problem. This is to allow them to help you navigate the NHS and get to the best service to help you with your problem as soon as possible.

 

Our receptionists are bound by the same confidentiality agreements as the doctors and nurses!
