Extended Access, Urgent Appointments and Phlebotomy Clinics

Extended Access, Urgent Appointments and Phlebotomy Clinics
Changes which take effect from the 1st of April, 2019

Extended Access
Amendment 29th May 2019
Extended access appointments will be provided by another local hub. We are just finalising these details, more information will be published soon.

Urgent Appointments
We will be changing the way we offer appointments to patients who can not wait for the next routine appointment.
From the 1st of April the practice will operate a BOOKABLE ONLY urgent appointment system.
If a patient has an urgent, single issue (this would not include repeat medication, sick notes etc.) that cannot wait until the next routine appointment, a same day urgent appointment will be offered.

Phlebotomy Clinics
From the 1st of April, the phlebotomy clinics will be BOOKABLE APPOINTMENTS ONLY.
There will be NO walk-in clinic.
Appointments for Phlebotomy can be booked online or by telephone and will be available:

Monday 9:00am—11:00am
Tuesday 2:00pm—4:00pm
Thursday 9:00am—11:00am

We have based the changes to both systems on patient feedback and expect the new systems to reduce waiting times for patients.
