Our Phone System

Before speaking to a receptionist, your call will be answered at the surgery by an auto attendant where you will select where you would like your call directed to e.g. appointments , prescriptions, results etc.   We hope this system will prove to provide a better service for patients. There will be no change to the existing surgery telephone number. (Please note all calls to and from the surgery are recorded for training and monitoring purposes).

 

NHS 24 Telephone Number update - please now dial 111.

Ordering Prescriptions or booking appointments online - please register for our online service, ask at reception for details regarding patient access online.

 

NEXT OF KIN

Please update you next of kin details with us. This can be very helpful when someone takes unwell suddenly, or if the surgery need to contact you in a mater of urgency.

 Text Reminder Service

 We send out text messages to remind patients of appointments that have been booked at least 24 hrs in advance. We hope this will prevent patients forgetting to turn up for their appointment or to contact us to cancel appointments that are no longer required. We will also be using this service to send out texts requesting basic health information or to request you to make an appointment if you are due a review.

We are in the process of updating our telephone numbers (see below) so please check at reception to ensure we have the correct telephone number for you as we cant contact you if we dont have the correct mobile number.  You will be able to opt out of this service if you wish.
