If you have a problem that you’ve had for less than 10 days, and you don’t think it is urgent, please think carefully before you phone to speak with a GP or nurse. Many of our patient’s problems can be dealt with by other services. Pharmacists are great people to ask about minor illnesses and for medication advice. Podiatrists can help with foot problems, Opticians can deal with eye problems and Dentists can often deal with mouth, Jaw and teeth problems.
- Please let us know if you have had a positive experience using our services so we know what you feel works well. If you would like to be involved with helping to shape practice services you may wish to consider joining the patient participation group (PPG).
- Support the 2 campaigns run by the British Medical Association (BMA) and Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) campaigns. The information on their websites will explain the scale of the problem across the whole of the UK. Please visit their websites and contact your local MSP to let them know that General Practice needs political support.
- We are working hard to serve all of our patients with medical needs as best as we can. Thank you for all your feedback and support so far.
