We now have an ANP (Advanced Nurse Practitioner)
She will see patients with acute minor medical issues such as uti's, ear infections, chest infections, skin infections etc. You will be encouraged by the reception staff to see the ANP (when available)instead of a GP for conditions such as above. This will allow GP'S to see patients with potentially more serious conditions.
We now have a Mental Health Nurse working within our practice. If you need a mental health review and do not attend any other mental health/addiction services and are over 18, give us a call to make an appointment.
NEW TEXT MESSAGING (SMS) SERVICE
We are now using a texting service which will allow us to contact patients more easily, whether it is to invite you for chronic disease management or to ask you to phone us to discuss results. This system will allow us to send you a message with confirmation of an appointment you have booked and will allow you to cancel an appointment by sending us a message back. Saving you having to call us.
Please let us know your mobile number if you already haven't already done so.
You can opt out of this form of communication if you wish. Just let one of the receptionists know.
