Woodseats Medical Centre

Appointments

We run an appointment-only system. Appointments can be booked by telephoning the surgery, visiting the surgery in person or online using SystmOnline. We ask that if your issue does not require attention the same day, that you please visit this website form  and complete a questionnaire regarding your symptoms. This will be triaged by a clinician and you will then receive a text within 2 working days to notify you of the outcome of your submission form.

We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.

We have an extended clinical team at Woodseats Medical Centre, which includes GPs, Physicians Associates, Practice Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and other attached clinical staff. It may be more appropriate for you to see a Nurse or Healthcare Assistant for routine tests and follow-up appointments, so please always check with the Receptionist if you are unsure as to which clinician to make the appointment with and they will happily advise you.

We are not an emergency service and do not deal with problems which should be taken to A&E.

 

Extended hours appointment access

Local GP practices have teamed up to improve the way we provide weekend and evening appointments for our patients.

This new service will begin on Saturday 1st October it and will mean that most people will be able to book weekend and evening appointments closer to where they live.

Remote and face-to-face appointments can be made with a variety of GP practice staff including Doctors, Advance Care Practitioners, Nurses, Nurse Associates, Health Care Assistants, Physiotherapists and, Pharmacists. Initially appointments can be booked via your GP, but there will soon be an option for patients to book direct online and through NHS 111.

For our patients, appointments will be available at Meadowgreen Health Centre and Crystal Peaks Medical Centre
