Senior Health Checks
Please note that you are entitled to a Senior Health Check if you are 75+ Please speak to our Reception Team to book your appointment.
SMS Text Messaging
We are sending text messages to all patients who have provided us with a mobile phone number to remind them of their forthcoming appointment. The messages will be received at 6pm on the day before the appointment is to take place. We also send text messages to those who have missed their appointment. If you would rather not have text messages sent to you, please let the surgery know where we can amend your contact preferences on our computer system. We are hoping that this will decrease the number of patients who do not arrive and allow us to offer appointments to others who need them. Please advise the surgery if you change your mobile phone number so we can contact you. We are also contacting patients for flu and shingles vaccines, and other appointment offers as appropiate if you have certain medical conditions.
Please cancel your appointment if you do not need it any longer as it can then be used for someone else. Due to the surgeries being full if you turn up late for your appointment please do not expect to be "fitted in" as this is unfair on other patients that have turned up on time for their appointments. Please appreciate if the Dr or Nurse is running late themselves then this is because they have had to deal with an emergency or someone who is acutely ill.
