A&E Attendance

A&E - IS YOURATTENDANCE APPROPRIATE?

Many attendances by patients registered at this practice are recorded by A&E departments every month. 

Are you aware that there are alternatives available?

 

Did you know that:

Our reception team is available from 8:00am to 6:30pm every weekday and will route your call to the Nurse Practitioner or duty GP who may give advice over the phone or invite you to attend the surgery for a same-day appointment.  This is often quicker than attending A&E.  Tel:   01933 412777

The practice has emergency surgeries every weekday for acute medical problems .

GPs can, where appropriate, access suitable alternative pathways  on your behalf.

 

For certain conditions,the GP may advise that an A&E attendance is appropriate (for example where x-ray or ultrasound scan is indicated).
