Abbey Mead Surgery Practice ethos
A forward-thinking, professional Practice – providing good quality, traditional, family medicine.
Providing enough appointments to suit everyone’s needs is a constant challenge!
We need to have “BOOK ON THE DAY” appointments for people who have an acute or urgent problem and “BOOK IN ADVANCE” appointments (up to 4 weeks) for ongoing conditions.
Getting the balance right between the two is difficult, because demand for appointments varies hugely from day to day.
We are trialling a new system to see if we can improve things for our Patients. Deciding what is urgent and what is routine is also difficult, but we have several Teams of people who can help you, in addition to Doctor telephone consultations.
All Staff are bound by our confidentiality clause – so please give them a clue to what you want and they can find the quickest or most appropriate person to help you – if you tell them!
To find out about our appointment system and how it works and our staff members please download our Newsletter.
