CHANGES FROM OCTOBER
From the beginning of October this year the doctors are adopting a new way of working at Salters Meadow Centre. Patients will still be registered with a named GP but clinics will be set up and appointments allocated on a rota basis, so patients will see whichever doctor is the next available. If you feel it is essential to see a particular doctor there may well be a delay in getting an appointment. This system is being introduced to try and equalize an ever increasing workload for each doctor, and in fact most surgeries have worked this way for many years.
In August 96 patients failed to attend appointments with our GP's or Nurses.
This means that almost 100 patients were denied the opportunity to see their GP/Nurse. If a patient does not attend an appointment and we do not receive prior notification of the cancellation we can not offer this appointment to someone else, resulting in longer waiting times for everyone. If you no longer need an appointment that you have booked please let the receptionist know. We have now started using a texting service to remind patients of pending appointments. This month it has helped reduce the number of DNA's
