Appointment System Changes

3 of 11

Due to patient feedback, and wanting to improve our patient services, we are changing the way we run the lunchtime surgery. From Monday 4th December 2017 there will no longer be a ‘sit and wait’ style clinic operating at lunchtime. Instead, the practice will be releasing a limited number of timed appointments for those who would like same day review. This change will reduce a potentially long wait for patients during this time, and offer them a timed slot. We thank patients for their patience and understanding and hope that these changes will make this session safer and more efficient more both clinical staff and patients.

Early Close

Improving Access to General Practice: Evening and Weekend Appointments Now Available

Patients who are registered at Lion Health can book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on select weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends.  Talk to the practice receptionist to find out more or book an appointment. By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients.  Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
