Appointments

If you need to book an appointment please ring the practice on 01952 811677.

We’re now working hard towards ‘restoring services’ and balancing patient requirements with social distancing (not easy but we are lucky to have a fairly big practice).

We are triaging every patient to assess if the appropriate advice can be given over the telephone or if the Clinician needs to see you face to face,

The majority of our consultations continue to be carried out over the phone or by video consultation.

A few notes for your information:

We are able to safely seat 14 patients in the downstairs waiting room and 9 patients in the upstairs waiting room. Please avoid bringing family members to appointments with you and try not to arrive early for your appointment.

We have a HOT room for any patients who need to be assessed but are suffering COVID symptoms. Patients with symptoms will be asked to remain outside or in their car and the Clinician will call them in through a separate entrance (to the left of the main entrance). PLEASE NOTE THAT ANYONE SUFFERING WITH COVID SYMPTOMS SHOULD CALL 111 IN THE FIRST INSTANCE.

Please sanitise your hands when you arrive.

Face coverings will remain mandatory in all healthcare settings beyond 19 July, NHS England has confirmed this.

If you ring up and ask to see a doctor or nurse, you will be offered a telephone call first (these go very quickly now that demand has increased). The Clinician will ring you and try to resolve your issue over the phone.  If they need to see you, you will be given a time to attend the surgery

Appointment lengths have had to double from 10 minutes to 20 minutes - this is to allow time for the clinicians to put on and take off PPE, and clean down between each patient. Unfortunately that means that we have less face2face appointments available. 

We have been overwhelmed by the kindness and support we have received from our patients; it is really very much appreciated.

If you feel your appointment will take more than ten minutes, please contact the practice to discuss this.

If you feel you need an appointment out of surgery hours please ask reception about our extended opening hours between 6.30-7.00pm.

GP practices across Telford and Wrekin are participating in the delivery of a national extended hours service, giving our patients access to additional appointments up to 8:00pm in the evenings and at weekends (now also including on Bank Holidays).

Please call your GP practice to get more information or to book an appointment with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional.
