As the country eases out of lockdown the practice is working towards returning to face appointments but we are not there yet.
We reserve a number of appointments for SAME DAY EMERGENCIES, so if your condition means you need to see a health professional urgently, please call as early in the morning as you can, and help us by being prepared to tell the receptionist a bit about the problem so that they can make sure you receive the most appropriate support.
You will receive a return phone call from a doctor or one of our nurse practitioners or our Paramedic Practitioner. Nurse practitioners and Paramedic practitioners are trained to assess, diagnose and manage a wide range of conditions, and can prescribe for most common illnesses and refer on if required. You may be asked to come in to the surgery for an appointment, or we may recommend you take a different route to give you the quickest and most appropriate help with your problem. Many of our patients find this quick response by telephone convenient and effective.
Thank you for your continued support during this time.
Dr’s Garstang, Aung, Augustine & Gouges.
