Changes to the Appointment System from 8th January 2018

Following patient, doctor and staff feedback we have again reviewed our appointments system. As a result, from the week beginning Monday 8th January, we have implemented some changes to our current system.

We know, from your feedback, that patients would like to see the doctor of their choice as far as possible. We hope the changes to the system will help to facilitate this by having ‘Same Day GP’ appointments for all clinicians consulting that day .

Our aim with the new changes are to ensure that individuals are seen in a timely manner by the most appropriately qualified clinician to manage that episode of care. As well as our General Practitioner workforce we have a fully qualified team of Nurse Practitioners and Clinical Pharmacists to manage a range of conditions.

Our reception staff will aim to offer you to the most appropriate appointment for a clinical condition. We are aiming to offer a degree of choice for individuals whom have a preferred clinician. However, this may be limited by a particular condition, busy appointment times or changes to working patterns. Please see Appointment advice for further information about the range of appointments available.

Dr Deakin

As you may already be aware, Dr Phil Deakin retired at the end of December. Dr Deakin has been an integral part of our practice over the past 28 years, and he will be very much missed. We are sure you will all join the staff and Partners of Garstang Medical Practice in saying a huge thank you for all his hard work and for all that he has done for his patients. We wish him a long and happy retirement.

Patient Continuity and Routine Appointments

As a practice we are aware that a proportion of patients who would benefit from or would simply like continuity of care with the same doctor or nurse, are unable to book routine appointments with their usual doctor. Please click here to read more.

Other Information

Self Care

Self-care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from brushing your teeth, doing some exercise, managing common conditions (like headaches, colds and flu) or living with a long-term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.

As part of a the local 'Better Care Together' initiative which is reviewing health services across North Lancashire, a local GP has created some Self-Care Videos. We would encourage patients to watch these videos before contacting the surgery for the minor ailments covered as they offer excellent advice that may save you a trip to the surgery.

You can view the videos on the Better Care Together YouTube channel ‘BCTMorecambeBay’, or you can visit their Website here. For other information and advice about self-care, please visit the Self Care Forum website here.
