Coronavirus Update Posted on 15th May 2020
Please see new Information for Diabetics and Coronavirus
Empowering people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when they need to, gives people greater control of their own health and encourages healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term. See advice resource bottom of right hand column.
In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients, such as those with comorbidities, the very young and elderly, managing long-term conditions and providing new services.
Oriel Surgery Training Practice
Oriel Surgery has been accredited as a training practice, and from early August 2015 we will be hosting qualified doctors intending to become GP’s. Becoming a training practice means that we have been recognised for achieving higher standards of patient care – something that we earnestly value and treasure.
The GP Trainee is a fully qualified doctor who already has experience of hospital medicine and will gain invaluable experience by being based within the practice.
Please do not hesitate to speak to the GP or staff member about this new development
Cancelling your Appointment
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone the surgery as early as possible to cancel your appointment.
By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.
The Practice has an electronic link to the laboratory at the local Hospital.
To receive test results, please contact the Practice between the hours of 11-12pm and 3-4 pm. The receptionist will be happy to inform you of the test results reported by the doctor.
For reasons of confidentiality, information will not be given to another person unless prior permission has been given.
