Telephones

We are pleased to announce that we have had a new telephone system installed. As with any new system there may be a few technical difficulties and delays as the new system beds in and we learn more about how the system works. We are expecting that the new system will give patients a much better over all experience but we would ask for your continued patience and support during the early days.

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.

  • Trouble Urinating - for more information click here

When the prostate is enlarged it can press on the tube that carries urine from the bladder. This makes it hard to pass urine, which can be a sign on prostate disease. Every man has a prostate gland and its crucial to your sex life, if you have any symptoms and are concerned please see your GP

Your GP is likely to assess your general health, because impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction, can be a sign of more serious conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes or high blood pressure.
