Budgets
Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!

Photo ID you may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. 

Sickness Certficates The first 7 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self Certification form, which can be found here

 

If you come to see your doctor or other health professional prepared and with realistic expectations, then you will get much more out of the 10 minute consultation. Below are some helpful pointers

  • Be clear on when you symptoms first started
  • Tell the doctor everything, you could without realising be holding back vital information
  • If you have multiple problems, you will need to book more than one appointment, this will give your GP the time to manage and treat each condition
  • Arrive on time for your appointment
  • If the appointment requires a fee, make sure you have the cash available to give to reception when you book in
  • If you feel you would like a chaperone in your appointment, let reception know when you check in
