Telephone consultations

GP and nurse telephone consultations are available on a daily basis, normally at the end of surgery. Please check with reception for details. There are many occasions where you do not need to attend the surgery to sort out your problem. The following list gives a few examples of when a telephone consultation may be appropriate:
  • Advice about your medication
  • Minor, non-acute or recurrent medical problems
  • Follow-up advice from a recent surgery consultation
  • Results of investigations/tests
  • To discuss a letter from a consultant following hospital attendance
  • Administration queries, eg letter to the housing department
  • Medical certificate queries
