Important Changes to Making a Doctor’s Appointment

Surrey Lodge Group Practice has endeavoured to continue to provide routine and urgent care throughout the past 12 months of the pandemic to the best of our ability.

We recognise that Covid-19 has made the provision of routine health care particularly challenging and that some of our patients have understandably been hesitant to seek medical care during this time.

As we approach the end of the recent lockdown, we have been working hard towards developing a strategy to prioritise routine health care and chronic disease management along with urgent same day medical issues.

We are now asking patients to book appointments via our website wherever possible. Please use the following forms to book at appointment at the practice:

Doctors Appointments

This new form has been added to the website for urgent same day requests for a GP appointments as well as routine an chronic disease management appointments. This form will be available every working day to allow us to prioritise our appointments and do our best to manage patient requests for same day appointments.

We do recognise that emergencies may occur outside of this time frame, in which case please contact reception via telephone for advice. Please also remember to utilise pharmacies, 111 service, and local walk-in centres for urgent minor ailments.

Nurse and Health Care Assistant Appointments:

Please use this form to request an appointment with a Nurse or HCA for:

Blood Tests, BP checks, ECG, Vaccinations, Asthma Reviews, COPD Reviews, Diabetes Reviews, Cervical Screening and other nursing requests.

Extended Access Service

We also have access to the extended hours service which provides clinical appointments from 18:00 – 20:30, Monday – Friday and Saturday and Sunday day time.

This may not be at your usual practice, but the GP or Health Care Professional who sees you will have access to your medical record and can issue prescriptions if required and deal with other matters appropriately should the need arise.
