NEW from September 2017 – Patient Extended Access Appointments
Routine GP appointments available on Saturday mornings in Farnham and Sunday mornings at Frimley Park Hospital.
Routine Practice Nurse and Healthcare Assistant appointments available Monday-Friday evenings and Saturday mornings in Farnham.
The five Farnham practices (Downing Street, Farnham Dene, The Ferns, Holly Tree and River Wey) continue to work together and will be offering routine appointments to their registered patients through NHS England’s new Patient Extended Access.
Four of the five Farnham practices are already established in seeing patients for their same day appointments in the Farnham Integrated Care Centre. The Extended Access appointments will give patients from all five practices the opportunity to see a doctor, nurse or health care assistant for a routine appointment outside the core hours of their GP practice.
The appointment with the doctor, nurse or healthcare assistance is booked through the patient’s home practice reception team. However, the appointment will take place at the Farnham Integrated Care Centre based in Farnham Centre for Health.
Patients are also able to book a routine GP appointments on a Sunday morning through the patient’s home practice. These appointments will take place at Frimley Park Hospital, Out-Patient 1.
Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurses & Healthcare Assistants.
We have avery experienced nurse practitioner who assess patients, organise tests, prescribe medication and refer to specialists if needed.
- Fiona Yardley: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Practice nurse appointments are available daily.
Our healthcare assistant performs electrocardiograms (ECGs), blood tests, urine testing, lung function tests, some injections and measures heights, weights and blood pressures.
Phlebotomy (Blood Test) appointments are available every morning by appointment.
We appreciate that ‘storing up’ several problems for a single appointment might be convenient, but we kindly recommend this is avoided because it is difficult to address more than one problem thoroughly and safely in 10 minutes.
Please ask your clinician if you would like a chaperone present during intimate examinations.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
