We have recently introduced a new Duty Doctor system, to help us manage demand. Every day one of the doctors has a completely unbooked surgery, which is split between telephone appointments and emergency appointments. Our receptions will ask a few simple questions to try to get you seen by the most appropriate member of the team at a convenient time. During busy periods you will be asked to wait for a call back from the doctor, who will then try to sort out your problem.
We hope to introduce online consultations and possibly Skype consultations in the future.
You can ring any of the numbers below to make an appointment at any of the surgeries:
- Doddington Surgery: 01354 740311

When Should I See A Nurse?
Nurses based at our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions (e.g. minor injuries/illnesses, removing stitches, travel vaccinations, immunisations and so on). Our practice nurses are also specially trained to run routine clinics for certain conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. (Each of our nurses specialises in a different area, so you need to book ahead with the most appropriate person). Our reception staff will be able to advise whether a nurse appointment is appropriate.
Nursing Care At Home
Patients who are confined to their homes and need nursing assistance may arrange with the doctor for a community nurse to call. They will be able to help assess your needs and give information and support. Practical nursing care may include injections, blood tests, dressings and help for patients with incontinence.
