Woolacombe Winter Surgery Hours

Please note - due to a drop in demand from patients, the Woolacombe Surgery will be closed every Tuesday from 1st February 2017.  Woolacombe patients are advised that they can attend either the Combe Martin or Ilfracombe Surgeries if necessary.

From 1st February 2017 the Woolacombe Surgery will  be open:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday from 08:30am - 13:00.

Named Allocated GP

You may be aware that from April 2015 all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

 

The allocated named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.

You do not need to take any further action. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery or call the surgery on 01271 863119.  Alternatively this information is available on the top right hand side of your repeat prescription slip.

If you are unhappy with the named doctor allocated to you and have a genuine concern that this doctor will not be best placed to undertake the responsibilities assigned; then you can ask to be reallocated to another doctor.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
