New System for Appointments
At Trowbridge health centre we are always trying to improve our service to you.
At this busy time of year, we will offer improved access to the doctor by allowing easier telephone contact.
We would encourage our patients to make telephone consultations if they feel a face to face consultation is not required. This is often more convenient and can save time for patients and the doctor. It is quite possible the GP will be able to deal with many enquiries over the phone, but if they feel the patient needs to be seen at the surgery they will arrange an appointment for the patient to be seen.
This will result in more pre-bookable GP appointments being available for those who need a face to face consultation with the GP.
We have a team of Nurse practitioners who are there to help look after you when you are ill. They are highly trained nurses specialising in acute illness and will see most patients who need an emergency appointment on any day. They are supported by the emergency doctor who can see anyone who needs to see the GP.
We ask you to bear with us as we develop & improve our changes.
