HERE TO HELP YOU ACCESS THE SERVICES THAT MEETS YOUR NEEDS
When you request an appointment our Receptionists, who have been trained in Care Navigation, will ask you briefly the reason for the appointment. This is so they can offer you the most suitable service for your needs.
This may not always be to see a GP, it may mean we can offer you the services of one of our practice based pharmacy team: they can help with all things to do with medicines and offer reviews annually or after changes to your medication, possibly after a hospital admission.
We also have a practice based advanced physiotherapist, we can book you straight into one of their clinics (subject to availability) they deal with problems like muscular aches and pains or skeletal problems. You do not need to speak to a GP before accessing this service
We can also signpost you to Live Well Wakefield, Social Prescribers for non-clinical matters such as support with housing or finances, if you feel lonely or isolated, coping with a bereavement and much more. You can contact this service yourself without ringing your GP practice by calling: 01924 255 363
