Missed Appointments! - 06/03/2018

Since the weekend 24 patients have failed to attend their appointments with us. This means that in the last two days 5 hours 50 minutes of clinical time was wasted. We do our best to remind our patients of their appointments and would appreciate it if you could let us know when your appointment is no longer needed. We give our patients the opportunity to cancel appointments 24/7 using our dedicated cancellation line which means that they do not have to wait in the telephone queue.

Snow & Ice - 28/02/2018

With temperatures remaining below freezing, we'd like to remind patients to be careful when walking and driving in the snow. Our maintenance team will be gritting our sites regularly and removing ice where possible. We'll also be offering more telephone appointments for those who are unable to visit us.

Times Are Changing - 18/08/2017

“When I moved to Westbury forty five years ago, if I was ill, I was always seen by a doctor at the surgery or visited at home. Now, in 2017, there are many highly trained clinicians who support the doctors in their work. This flyer has been put together to explain the roles of those people and why you may be given an appointment with them rather than a GP.”
