CHANGES TO REQUESTS FOR REPEAT MEDICATIONS - South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (SLCCG) have instructed all Community Pharmacies that they may no longer accept Repeat Medication Requests from patients for delivery to Beechfield Medical Centre - the onus is now on patients to deliver their requests directly to us, or to register online with us and make their requests that way.  Arrangements have been made for those patients who consider themselves to be "vulnerable" to continue to service their requests through Community Pharmacies on application to the pharmacy.  Please note that if you are unable to register for online requests, then the simplest option will be to hand deliver your request outside of normal working hours, and post it in the letterbox for that purpose just to the left of the main entrance to the surgery building.  


Please note that this change has not been instigated or driven by the Practice, but we have no choice but to comply with the instructions of the SLCCG in this matter.


See Latest News Section for details of recent in house surveys of our services, and for details of our Training Closures in 2018, the next of which will be from 1430 on Tuesday 30 January 2018

Appointments 

Routine appointments

Telephone the surgery on 01775 724088 and speak to one of our receptionists; or

  • Call into the Practice and speak to the receptionist at the front desk.
  • If no appointments are available at the time you will be asked to call back.

Urgent – same day appointments

Only patients with an urgent problem will be seen on the same day. To see a doctor or nurse practitioner you must telephone the surgery on 01775 724088 and speak to one of our receptionists. She will take your contact details and you will be called back by a clinical team member as soon as possible.

If you walk into the practice your contact details will be taken at the front desk and you will be called back by a clinician as soon as possible.

We work as a team at the practice offering the first available appointments with an appropriate clinical professional, which may be a practice Nurse or Nurse Practitioner. Requests to see individual clinicians will be met where possible, but on occasions this may not be possible. We will always tell you if, for any reason, your appointment is unavoidably delayed.

Nurse Practitioners and Practice Nurses

We have a highly experienced and trained Nursing team at Beechfield, many of whom are specialists in certain chronic conditions in their own right, as well as being qualified in minor illnesses. Our Nurse Practitioners are highly qualified and experienced independent practitioners.  Depending on the circumstances, you will be offered an appointment with a suitable member of the Nursing team when possible, which is normally a quicker means of being seen at an appropriate level within the practice. 

Patient Self Check-in

The Practice has a self check-in machine located in the ground floor waiting room, to the right of the reception desk. This is the simplest and most speedy method of registering your arrival, and the information is relayed directly to the clinicians to let them know you have arrived.  Our reception team will be pleased to show you how to make use of this facility if you are unfamiliar with it.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. We monitor non-attendance of booked appointments and we reserve the right to remove patients from our surgery list if this becomes a frequent occurrence.
