HOW DO I...
MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Routine Doctor / Nurse Appointments
Appointments can be made with a doctor from 8.30am to 12.00 noon and between 2.00 and 5.00pm each weekday afternoon with the exception of Thursday. The surgery is closed on Thursday and therefore appointments are available from 8.30 to 1.00pm only.

Routine appointments can also be booked on Tuesday evenings from 6.30 to 8.45pm at the Healthcare Centre.

If it transpires that you no longer need your appointment, PLEASE let us know. Appointments can also be cancelled online via: www.patient.co.uk

Practice Nurse appointments can be booked between 8.30am and 5.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and from 8.30am to 12.30pm on Thursday. In addition, you can book to see the Practice Nurse on Tuesday evening from 6.30 to 8.45pm.

Urgent Appointments
The practice offers same day emergency appointments should you experience or develop an urgent medical problem.

Remember: for us to be able to offer this service, we can deal only with problems that are genuinely urgent in nature.

HOW DO I...
OBTAIN A HOME VISIT?

Home visits should only be requested for patients on clinical grounds, ie for patients who are too ill or infirm to attend surgery. Please telephone to request a visit before 10.00am to enable us to plan our day. It is often better for a patient to be examined at the surgery where we have access to the necessary equipment etc.

HOW DO I...
OBTAIN TEST RESULTS?

If you need to check whether your hospital report/x-ray/blood test result has returned please telephone the relevant surgery after 2.00pm when the phones are less busy.

HOW DO I...
OBTAIN A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?

Patients on regular medication do not always need to see a doctor to obtain a repeat prescription. You will be issued with a slip attached to your prescription which should be returned to the surgery, after completion, when you require further medication. It is practice policy to provide a 28-day supply of long term medication and review this every six months though individual cases may vary. Medication is often expensive so do please request only those items which you truly require. Remember to allow two working days before collecting your prescription.

For all repeat prescriptions telephone:

The Healthcare Centre: 01772 655533
Longsands Medical Centre: 01772 511414
Sharoe Green Surgery: 01772 716410

Repeat prescriptions can also be ordered online at www.patient.co.uk. You can register for this service by contacting reception.

Patients who are on limited number of repeat prescription items which never or rarely change can apply to join the Repeat Dispensing Scheme. This enables patients to receive prescriptions of up to six months' supply of their medication at one request. If this applies to you, please ask when ordering your prescription. Please telephone the surgery to order your prescription after 10.00am and allow two working days before collection.

HOW DO I...
REGISTER WITH THE PRACTICE?

The practice area includes Fulwood, Broughton and parts of Ribbleton and surrounding areas (see map). If you wish to register with us, please enquire at the reception desk and we will advise you on the procedure to follow.
