Duty Doctor

We offer a Duty Dr clinic every morning Monday - Friday at St Anne's Surgery. 

The main aims are to:-

Increase access to appointments and offer greater flexibility and convenience to patients

To better manage "on the day" demand

To reduce the length of wait for "non-urgent" appointments

To increase the number of "pre-bookable" appointments that can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance

To reduce the number of unattended appointments

How does it work?

A Duty Dr will run a clinic each morning Monday - Friday

The clinic will run from 08.40 - 12.30

Patients wishing to see a specific Dr will be asked to book a routine appointment

Reception may ask you several questions in order to establish if your problem is appropriate for this clinic

In order for this service to work effectively, we ask that patients please remember:

Appointments are for 5 minutes only

One patient and one problem per appointment

Repeat prescriptions will not be issued during a consultation as there are better ways to deal with this (please discuss with reception)

Ongoing less urgent problems or long term conditions would be best dealt with by your regular GP who is familiar with your condition and medical history.  Please book a routine appointment with reception.
