If you require an urgent ‘same day’ appointment, you will be offered an appointment with the Immediate Access Nurse. She will be able to manage most same day demand requests for medical intervention. Should you need to see a GP, she will arrange this for you, according to your clinical requirements, either urgently today or in a routine appointment.

The Practice currently teaches a range of professionals within our premises ( registrars, nurses and healthcare assistants). Occasionally, you will be asked if you are happy for another professional to be present during your consultation, or if you object to the consultation being recorded on our video equipment. The training we offer is invaluable to these professionals and we hope that you will be happy supporting their education. Consultations cannot be recorded without your consent. We hope that you will consent, when asked, but your care will not be affected if you refuse to do so.
We are committed to addressing the specific needs of carers, offering help and support wherever appropriate and practicable. If you think you are a carer, please let us know so we can update your records. (The practice has a form you can complete). For further information on carers, please click these links HERE (County Council website) and HERE
We try to offer parking spaces for our less able patients in our car park and also place chairs with arms in our waiting rooms. We have two disabled toilet facilities within Latham House and one at Asfordby. Should you find our facilities are inadequate to meet your requirements, please speak to a member of staff or leave a suggestion in our suggestions box.
Primary healthcare team
The Practice is supported by a wide range of other health professionals in the community. In some instances your GP might need to refer you to them, and in others you can refer yourself. Please talk to a member of staff, if you need advice on how to contact the health visitors, district nurses, community psychiatric nurses or Macmillan nurse.
Dental emergencies cannot be managed within the doctors’ surgery. If you are registered with a dentist, you will need to contact them when you have an emergency. If you are not registered with a dentist, please telephone NHS Direct 111, who will advise you on where to seek treatment.
