Can another Healthcare Professional help?

Do you need to see the GP?

Sometimes the GP is not the most appropriate Healthcare Professional to deal with your ailment. Please see the information on see a Doctor or Healthcare Professional, which might help you decide whether a GP appointment is truly necessary or whether it might be better for you to see a Pharmacist, Optician, Dentist or other Healthcare Professional. You can even self-refer for some services without seeing your GP.

For real life-threatening emergencies such as those below – RING 999

  • Chest pain (suspected heart attack)
  • Suspected stroke
  • Suspected meningitis
  • Anaphylactic shock (severe allergy)
  • Heavy bleeding or deep lacerations
  • Fluctuating levels of consciousness or completely unconscious
  • Difficulty breathing or stopped breathing with a change in colour
  • New seizure, fit or uncontrollable shaking

For immediately serious conditions such as the following, GO TO Emergency Department (A&E) IMMEDIATELY

  • A fever and lethargic (drowsy) child
  • A feverish and floppy (unresponsive) infant
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sudden, severe abdominal pain
  • Accidental or intentional overdose of medication
  • Trauma (including falls) and possible broken bones or road traffic accident

Please help us

If you are not able to attend your appointment please let us know in time so that the time can be used for someone else. If you are late for an appointment you may be asked to re-book.

Arranging your Appointment

Here are some tips to make the most of your appointment
  • GP appointments are for 10 minutes. Please book a double appointment if you have lots to discuss. The doctor may not be able to deal with all problems in one visit.
  • Please make a separate appointment for each family member
  • Try and talk about the most important thing first. It is best to talk about the most important problem first, even if it is the most embarrassing or worrying. Write everything down before hand if necessary.
  • Is this your first visit to the practice? Please bring a list of medication you are currently taking.
  • If you don’t understand, don’t be afraid to ask again. The doctor can explain what has been said or any words you did not understand.
  • Ask a friend or family member to come with you if needed.
  • Book an Advocate/Interpreter if English is not your first language and you would like support.
  • Request a Chaperone if you require a sensitive examination.
  • Make sure you know what happens next. You may be asked to book a follow up appointment, be referred to a consultant or for further tests.  Make sure you know if you need to do anything and write it down if necessary.
  • If you are late you may not been seen. Please allow plenty of time when travelling to the surgery.
  • Let’s us know if you cannot attend. Cancelling your appointment lets us offer it to someone else.
  • Zero tolerance. Please be respectful to other patients and staff when attending the practice. Disruptive or abusive behaviour will not be tolerated.

Additional information

Can I bring someone to accompany me to the Appointment?

We are generally very happy for patients to bring with them a carer, relative or even a friend. This often helps, particularly when they know you well and it allows them to tell us any observations they would make about you, which can help us in undertaking our assessment. Ultimately this will lead us more quickly to make an accurate diagnosis and therefore help you more.

Also, having someone with you means they can prompt you to ask questions that you may have forgotten, and after the appointment they can help in reminding you what was discussed.

Occasionally we might ask for them to leave but this would be unusual.

If you require interpretation services please contact us in advance of you appointment and we will arrange this.

If you have a suspected infectious disease

Please inform reception if you suspect an infectious disease, as this will enable us to deal with it appropriately during your visit to protect you, other patients and staff. 

Giving Consent for Treatment

You have the right to accept or refuse treatment that is offered to you, and not to be given any physical examination or treatment unless you have given valid consent. If you do not have the capacity to do so, consent must be obtained from a person legally able to act on your behalf, or the treatment must be in your best interests.

Your valid consent (agreement to the course of action) is needed for the treatment that’s offered to you before any physical examinations or treatment can be given. If you haven’t given your consent, you can accept or refuse treatment that’s offered to you.

It’s important to be involved in decisions about your treatment and to be given information to help you choose the right treatment. When making treatment choices, you’ll often discuss the options with your doctor or another healthcare professional.
