Telephone Consultations

For some problems you may not need to have the inconvenience of coming to the surgery. If you wish, you can arrange a telephone consultation with your doctor or with our nurse consultant from the comfort of your home or office. This service has proved very popular with our patients.

Telephone consultations can be used, for example, for:

  • Advice on minor illness
  • Discussion on results of tests or recent hospital appointments
  • Many medication reviews or queries on medication

Ring the surgery telephone number and inform the receptionist that you would like a telephone consultation. You will be given a time slot and the doctor will make every effort to ring you after the morning/afternoon sessions. You must provide a contact number where you will be available at the given time. This could be a work number or a mobile number as long as you make sure you are there to take the call.

If you are not sure whether your condition can be dealt with over the phone please make a normal surgery appointment.
In addition the Doctor may ask you to ring for a telephone consultation after a face to face consultation or upon the receipt of medical results or a hospital letter.

We feel this is a helpful way to access your doctor without attending the surgery.

You may also wish to complete our Doctorlink questionnaire so that the receptionists can book you a telephone call with the GP
