Welcome to West End Surgery
The Doctors and Administration Staff at West End Surgery are proud to offer the highest standard of patient centred healthcare.
Everything you need to know about the practice and health related information can be found in the menu on the right hand side.
From Monday 2nd September there was a slight change to the way doctors’ appointments are booked. We need to do this to try and reduce the length of time patients are waiting to see a doctor, and to ensure that patients with an urgent medical need are seen promptly.
The Same Day, or “Open Surgery” is continuing but there is a limit to the number of slots available – 8 per doctor. When these slots are full you will be offered a Same Day appointment for later in the day. If all the Same Day slots are full and you feel you need to see the doctor urgently the doctor “on call” will deal with your request and you will be seen as soon as possible.
Same Day afternoon and evening appointments will still be bookable by telephoning the surgery at 8.30am every day except Thursday.
More afternoon and evening appointments will now be available for you to book ahead and we do encourage you to use these wherever possible if you don’t need to be seen urgently so patients who are ill can be seen the same day.
This system will offer a much better service to all our patients but if you have any concerns or comments please contact the Practice Manager, Nicola Willis by telephone or
by email on email@example.com.
The Practice is now offering an increased number of 'Pre-Bookable' appointments in the afternoons. These appointments are for routine and follow-up visits; these can be booked at anytime and in some cases up to 8 weeks in advance.
The Practice has also changed the number of GPs working at any one time to meet patient requirements, we now have three GPs offering appointments and at peak times there will be four GPs.
The afternoon clinics times have changed, we now start afternoon sessions at 14.30 with the last appointment being offered at 18.00 each day.
The Extended Hours service which is on a Wednesday evening has been developed to offer more access to appointments and the GPs at the surgery. We offer GP appointments between 18.30–20.30 and offer Practice Nurse appointments too. In addition the Practice offers a Healthy Living Clinic lead by our newly appointed Healthcare Assistant.
We hope that the slight change will ensure that patients with a Same Day medical need will be seen promptly. Patients will be seen on time with their pre-booked appointments and we will improve upon our services to patients. If you have any feedback you would like us to consider please contact the Practice Manager by telephone or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
