Noticeboard

Booking an Appointment online – Appointments with our Nurse Practitioners are now available through the online patient access service. Patients are advised that the Nurse Practitioners work alongside the Doctors and can see patients with acute illness: They are available to diagnose, treat, prescribe and refer where necessary. The Nurse Practitioners should not be confused with the Practice Nurses who are available for annual reviews, immunisations, blood pressure and blood tests to name but a few. If in doubt please contact the practice by telephone to book your appointment. Appointments with our Practice Nurses will be available via the online service shortly.

Training Afternoon - The Practice closes for training once a month. If you have a genuine need for medical assistance during these times please contact NHS 111.

When We Are Closed

Patients are advised to telephone NHS 111 when the surgery is closed. They will then be directed towards the appropriate service for their needs. 

Calls are free from both landlines and mobile phones.

Choose Well

The Doctors and Staff at Alderwood Medical Practice are supporting a national campaign to ensure people know where to go for medical help when they need it. Too many people are turning up at A&E because they simply do not know where else to go for treatment or what other services are available.

The Choose Well campaign, which is being promoted at GP Practices across the area, focuses on getting people the right treatment in the right place at the right time. It aims to help people to understand the different options available and to improve their experience of local health services.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
