Changes to appointments

In the upcoming weeks we will be introducing some changes to the way routine appointments are being booked. When calling the practice to book a routine appointment, the receptionists will ask you the reason for the appointment in the same way they already ask you when booking an urgent or nurse appointment. This is so we can signpost you to the most appropriate clinician which will make it easier for you to access the help that you need. This information is being asked at the request of the doctors and clinicians working at the practice.

 

It would also be a great help when booking a telephone consultation or an utilising the online booking system that again you provide a reason for booking your appointment.

 

Please be assured that ALL staff working at Churchfields Medical Practice have signed a confidentiality agreement and any information given will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Travel assessments

The practice will be unable to do any travel risk assessment or vaccinations until further notice.

Telephone Consultations

Your GP or the reception team may offer you a telephone consultation instead of a face to face appointment. The doctors are often able to assist you in this way, saving you the time and effort it takes to come to the surgery. If you think that a telephone appointment might be right for you, please ask for one when you book.

Urgent Appointments

Pharmacy support

There are a number of minor illnesses that your local pharmacy can help you to manage. This is often easier and faster than contacting us for an appointment. If you pay for your prescriptions, the medications required for minor illness are usually cheaper than the prescription charge. If you don't pay for prescriptions, there is a scheme called Pharmacy First, under which you can get treatment without charge. You can find out more about Pharmacy First here.
