Our reception staff are here to help you, they are trained and qualified for the job and are a very important part of the health team.

They act on the doctor’s instructions, when phoning for medical attention they may ask you for some details that the doctor needs to know, so that they can help you in the most appropriate way. Please be patient with this part of the system.

They can also advise you on the range of services that are available.

The practice uses the NHS E-Referral system which is a national service that combines electronic appointment booking with a choice of place, date and time for a patients first appointment with a specialist; using this service to book hospital and clinic appointments the patient receives a service that is more tailored to the needs of the individual.

The practice E-Referral or Choose and Book team are more than happy to deal with any queries relating to this service and is contactable through both Lower Green and Wood Road surgery receptions.

Registrars

These are doctors who have completed a minimum of 2 years work as a doctor and have chosen to train as GPs. The training programme is 3 years long and you may therefore see registrars in their 2nd (ST2) or 3rd (ST3) year of training. They stay with us for between 6 months and 1 year.

They are allocated between 10 and 30 minutes to consult with patients and will initially be closely supervised by a GP until they have demonstrated their competence. Before they qualify as GPs, they will have to undertake further examinations and demonstrate to us that they are able to practice to an excellent standard.

Registrar doctors working at the practice need to video consultations for training purposes. When the doctor is videoing you will be informed of this when you book your appointment and your written consent to take part in the video consultation will always be asked for before your consultation. You may decline to participate if you wish.
