Important Announcement  

Lodgeside Surgery and St George Health Centre have announced a plan to merge in April 2018.

It will be BUSINESS AS USUAL for ALL our patients. Patients, if they wish to, will still be able to see a Doctor or Nurse at their usual practice.

More information about the merger is available via a patient newsletter, copies of which are available under "Latest News" tab or at Reception in both surgeries.

Patients' views on the merger are welcome and can be sent by post or email to lodgesidesurgery@nhs.net

 

GP Appointments

diaryGP Appointments may be booked either in person, by telephone or on-line.

Routine GP Appointments - We feel it is very important to be able to book appointments in advance. Routine GP appointments can be pre-booked up to 2 weeks in advance. Every day a fresh batch of appointments are released for up to 2 weeks in advance; every day the allocation of appointments are used so unfortunately, we may ask you to call back to take advantage of the next batch of appointments.

Booked Telephone Consultations:

We are very aware that our patients lead busy lives.  We now offer booked telephone appointments with a doctor. Many problems that don't require physical examination can be successfully dealt with over the telephone.

Urgent "Same Day" Appointments - All patients who wish to be seen urgently will usually be offered a telephone triage call by a Doctor. By using a triage service we are able to ensure that clinically urgent problems are prioritised, urgent problems will be seen within 24 hours; to help the triage Doctor prioritise calls it is very helpful if the Doctor has a brief reason for needing to see/speak to a Doctor.

When triaging appointments, if the Doctor assesses the problem as non-urgent, the Doctor may offer telephone advice, medication or suggest a routine appointment to assess the problem.
