How will the appointments work?
All appointments will continue to be available as at present at your current surgery
You will NOT need to travel to another site unless you choose to do so
Will this affect my named GP?
Your named GP will not change and you will continue to have access to any GP at the surgery
Will I be able to call the same number?
Yes, please continue to telephone your usual number
There are no changes to the prescription ordering service or timescales. Patients that have registered for Patient Access can also order on line.
CHANGES TO THE APPOINTMENT
To enable us to offer our patients an effective and reliable service we are introducing a new triage system
When you call the surgery, the receptionist will ask you to give some basic information about the reason for your call
Please do not be offended by this, it is to help the doctors prioritise medical need.
If you do not want to give this information please say that it is personal
Due to the rising demand and pressures at A&E departments, Park Road Surgery are working with Surrey Heath CCG to try to reduce unnecessary attendances: Click here to find out more
