Evening GP Clinic
Following feedback from recent surveys and discussions with our Patient Reference Group, we are piloting an evening GP commuter clinic. These are on Wednesday evenings The clinic runs from 5.00 - 8.00pm and is specifically for those patients who are unable to get to see a GP at other times. Please note that these are pre-bookable only (see below to register for our online booking service).
New Text Messaging Service
We have just started using a new text messaging service called MJOG. One of the key benefits for patients is that you can cancel appointments by texting the word Cancel to the number which will be on your appointment reminder. This will automatically cancel your appointment without the need to make a phone call. It will instantly make the appointment available for other patients to book.
