Telephone Consultations

GP telephone appointments can be used for;

  • Discussions regarding test results
  • Discussions regarding ongoing treatment
  • Queries about treatment or care
  • Discussions regarding possible care – e.g. so a GP can assess whether a blood test may be required, so this can be authorised in advance of a future appointment
  • Medication requests – those which our Clinical Pharmacist cannot take care of
  • Queries about medication – those which our Clinical Pharmacist cannot take care of

Should you feel that you do not need to visit the Health Centre but feel that a discussion over the phone with a doctor would suffice, please ask our Care Navigation team for a telephone consultation. The appointments are of 5 minutes duration. Please ensure that you remain available for the doctor to call you back at the designated time.

Telephone calls are recorded for training and quality purposes.
