House calls: are made for people who cannot come to the surgery, either due to their illness or infirmity. If possible they should be requested by 10.30am.

Cervical smears: when making an appointment please say it is for a smear, so slides etc can be prepared.

Medicals: are done outside normal surgery times by appointment. Fees are as recommended by the BMA and are displayed in the surgery

Pregnancy Testing: now available, ask at reception for details.

Out of Hours: MannDoc is situated at Nobles Hospital and all telephone calls are directed to the centre after hours. This service is for emergencies only.

Cancellations: Appointments are at a premium therefore please give 24hrs notice for cancellations, so your appointment can be used for emergencies.

Complaints: From time to time wires get crossed! We are not deliberately trying to upset you! Please air your complaint to the Practice Manager about an administrative problem either verbally or in writing. Any complaints about Medical management should be taken up with the appropriate Doctor or nurse. Hopefully the majority of complaints can be settled quickly and satisfactorily.
