Urgent Cases are assessed on the day.
Our surgery is very busy so to try to be more efficient and hopefully get you assessed more rapidly, our receptionists may ask you questions to try and determine how best to help you. You may be put through to one of the Doctors who may ask you further questions about your illness (triage). (Of course, all information you give is confidential and you do not need to give any information if you would rather not.)
If your condition is non-urgent we hope for you to be able to see a GP as soon as possible, although you may have to wait longer to see a particular GP or at times of exceptional demand. You have the option to book up to 12 weeks in advance if this more convenient for you.
Please help us by:
- Be on time for your appointment.
- Tell us if you need to cancel.
- Call for a home visit before 10am.
Patients may speak to a GP during surgery hours but you may be asked to call back at the end of surgery.
A Triage Nurse may take your call.
Teaching and training the future!
This is a teaching practice for future GP’s. There will usually be one or two Registrars in training with the practice for a period of 6-12 months. As part of the training requirement, a consultation may from time to time be recorded by video. This would only be with the patients consent. Our trainers are Dr Matthew Blackamore and Dr Nicola Williams. We also have medical students from the University of Leeds on attachment to our practice. They are supervised by Dr Joanne Blackamore.
