Doctors appointments

If a home visit is required please contact the surgery before 10.30am where possible, you will be required to leave a contact number. The doctor may telephone you before they visit to discuss the problem, and to assess the patients need for a home visit.

Telephone ringback service, we will pass your initial query to the doctors PA who may call you for further information and try to solve your problem this should only be used when really necessary or it is just to clarify something. For most problems an appointment is preferred.

 

Acute Care Team 

At East Cliff, we believe that you should be able to access high quality medical care in a timely manner, appropriate to the urgency of your problem.  As a Practice, we are always looking for innovative ways to improve the service you receive whether this is care of an ongoing problem or help with an acute illness. Nationally, patient  demand for appointments is at an all-time high, whilst at the same time there is a recruitment crisis in general practice. We have for some time been developing a number of alternative solutions that benefit both patients and GPs.

As an initiative to optimise appointment use, we have introduced a new service The Acute Care Team.  It is staffed by three acute care practitioners, each of whom is an experienced nurse with additional training (and experience) in the management of new problems.

Each  day, this team will see the majority of patients with problems that need to be seen that day.  The Acute Care Practitioner will be supported by one of the practice GPs on a rotational basis who  will be available for queries.  The Acute Care Team will deal with your immediate medical need and will direct you towards your usual GP if any further care is needed.
