ALMOST 100% OF OUR PATIENTS GET SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS OR DAY OF THEIR CHOICE.....
Teehey Lane Medical Centre strive to ensure that every patient gets same day appointments or appointment on the day of their choice. This year Teehey Lane Medical Centre statistics related to providing appointments to patients revealed that we have been successful in providing appointments according to the planned outcome. We will continue to provide quality care service by ensuring appointments on the same day or day of their choice appointments to our patients - which is our utmost priority.
You may be aware that from April all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
All patients, including children have been allocated a named, accountable GP. In our practice this is denoted by your "Usual GP".
The Usual GP takes on responsibility for your overall care at the practice.
You will be informed of your Usual GP when you register, however you can also check who your Usual GP is at any time by asking any member of staff.
Patients have been allocated a Usual GP. Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate a change of Usual GP at your request.
Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice. However seeing your Usual GP in preference to others will improve your continuity of care.
