Take the 'Friends and Family Test'
Family and Friends for March 2016 – 100% would recommend the practice.
Consistent comments like: “excellent doctors”, “caring”, “friendly staff” and “can always get an appointment – unlike other practices!”
Thank you for taking the time to complete the Family and Friends Test and for giving us such positive feedback.
News: Junior Doctor Strike
On 26th and 27th April, Junior Doctors will take part in a full withdrawal of labour between the hours of 8am and 5pm (on both days).
Unlike previous strike days, Junior Doctors will NOT provide cover for emergency care during these times.
Northlands Wood supports the Junior Doctors in their action.
In order to cope with additional demand on these days, the majority of our appointments will be available on the day only and cannot be prebooked. All existing prebooked appointments are unaffected. We apologise if this causes any inconvenience but our intention is to ensure that medical assistance is available to those who urgently need it on these two days
Following a recent government change in the GP contract, we are now required to provide a named doctor for all of our patients over the age of 75 years.
As we work for a team, you may still ask for one of the other doctors in the practice, but your named doctor will take on the overall responsibility for your care.
We are in the process of contacting everyone over the age of 75 to inform them of their named GP, but if you have not been contacted or are unsure of your named GP please ask at reception.
Out of Hours
For 24 hour advice and information call NHS 111 by dialling 111. The 111 number is free to call from landlines and mobile phones.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
