Repeat Medication Over the Festive Period

Remember to order your medication early (Especially if you collect at a chemist) and check you have sufficient to last you over the holiday period.

 

Text Reminder Service

We now have a text reminder service for GP and Nurse appointments. If you are happy to use this service, the reminder will be sent to you two days before your appointment if we have a mobile telephone number on your medical record.

If you are not sure if we hold your current mobile number, when you call to book your appointment please ask for your number to be checked, updated or added to your records.

If you wish to opt out of this service, please let us know so we can code your records accordingly.

 

Booked surgery sessions

Morning and afternoon surgeries are by appointment at both sites. Please phone 01434 681281 for an appointment.

There is no evening surgery at Wark on a Tuesday or Thursday.

 

Urgent appointments

We have urgent appointments available each morning at Humshaugh and Wark where you can ring on the day and book an urgent appointment if necessary.

These appointments are for acute medical conditions that require same day attention and we would ask that for non-urgent or follow up appointments you book a routine GP appointment.

Hadrian Extra Care Hub

If you find it difficult to attend an appointment during the working day, the Hub can offer you pre-bookable, routine appointments with GPs, nurses and health care assistants between 6pm and 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am till 5pm on a Saturday.

If you wish to be seen at the Hub, contact our Reception team as appointments need to be made through the Surgery. You will be asked for consent to share your detailed GP record with the clinician providing the care.

This service is for general practice issues, not for urgent care. If urgent care is required outside our normal opening hours, call NHS 111 for advice.

If you need to cancel this appointment, call us at the Surgery and we will do this for you.

Telephone Consultations

If you need to speak to someone urgently you will be directed to the GP on duty for the day.

If you would like to speak to a particular GP about a routine/ongoing /non-urgent matter, you can be booked in for a telephone consultation.

Please note, if you wish to speak to a specific GP, this may not always be possible on the same day. Please ensure you are available to take your call 30 minutes either side of your booked telephone appointment time.

 

Extended opening until 19.30.

We hold late Surgery sessions until 7.30pm at Wark on a Monday and at Humshaugh on a Thursday. These surgeries are by appointment only.

(Please quote your NHS Number where ever possible when you contact us)

 

Appointments on line (Patient Access)

www.patientaccess.com

Surgery appointments can be made online.  You can access this system 24 hours a day and a selection of available appointments can be viewed and booked without having to ring the Surgery.  Please ask at Reception for a registration form.

Under the terms of the 2014/15 GP contract, patients registered for Patient  Access are now able to view specific parts of their medical record – medication, allergies and adverse reactions.

Patients who are registered with Patient Access but do not wish to have access to this additional facility should let the Practice know ASAP.

Patients are reminded that login details and passwords should be kept safe and secure and not shared with anyone.

Wheelchairs

Each of our Surgeries is accessible to patients using a wheelchair, though not all the rooms inside.
If you are a wheelchair user, please let the Receptionist know when you make an appointment.

 

Interpreters

We can arrange interpretation and translation services in person or by telephone for patients who may require it.  Please let us know if you need this service when booking an appointment.

 

Chaperones

If you would like to be accompanied during a sensitive examination, some of our Reception team are  trained to offer a chaperone service.  Please ask at reception when you book your appointment if you would like to be accompanied.

 

Doctors Appointment slots

Normally appointment slots are in 10 minute intervals.  We try to focus on one important problem in each consultation to avoid mistakes, confusion and to ensure the issue is properly addressed.  However, If you feel you need to discuss more than one health issue it would help us greatly if you could ask for a double appointment slot.  This will give you and the Doctor more time for discussion, and may save you having to make a further appointment.
