There are several ways of making a routine appointment with a doctor. You can either telephone the surgery or attend in person and speak to a receptionist.
You may now also make routine GP appointments over the internet. You must however first let us know that you wish to make use of this service, so the receptionist can issue you with instructions and your own PIN.
If you feel that you have a problem that needs urgent attention you should telephone the surgery as early in the day as possible - reception is open from 8.00am each day, Monday to Friday. You may be asked for a contact telephone number so that a doctor, nurse or nurse practitioner can speak to you. If you need to be seen in the surgery, you will be given a time to attend, usually the same day. If an emergency arises after the morning surgery has finished, please telephone the surgery and let the receptionist know you need help or advice. The doctor on duty or a nurse will contact you and arrange for you to be seen or given appropriate advice.
Appointments with the Nurse
Appointments for all nurse-led clinics can be made in the usual way through Reception either by personal contact or by telephone
Appointments with the Health Visitor- Public Health have withdrawn the service at the practice from august 2017 . You will still be able to be seen at the Ferham Centre
Rotherham's Health Visitor service is organised in geographical areas, rather than by attachment to specific GP practices, so your allocated Health Visitor will vary depending upon where you live. The Health Visitors working with the practice can be contacted on 01709 336406.
The Health Visitors and Nursery Nurses are at the surgery every Tuesday during the Baby Clinic, and also run their own 'Baby Clinic' at the Ferham Centre every Thursday, between 2pm and 3pm. They offer advice and support for parents with children aged 0 to 5 years and will weigh and measure your child
