Extended Access appointments outside of normal Surgery opening hours
We are pleased to announce that we will be offering more access in the evenings and occasionally on Saturdays. All of this access will be at the Beaconsfield Ore Surgery site at 21 Fairlight Road. As a consequence, the main Beaconsfield Road site will now close at 6pm on a Thursday. These appointments are only bookable up to 5 days in advance. Please note that the Surgery and telephones will not be open routinely on Saturdays. Access to the Surgery will only be granted to patients who have pre-booked these appointments. The Surgery will not be open for any other business.
CHANGE TO TELEPHONE NUMBER: The whole of the Beaconsfield Group Practice will now be using just one telephone number. This will allow you to pick which site you would like to be put through to; the old numbers have been withdrawn. Our new telephone number is 01424 755355. If you ring one of the existing old numbers after 1st October you will be asked to hang up and redial the new number so we advise patients to update their mobile phones with our new number now.
PLEASE ENSURE WE HAVE YOUR CORRECT CONTACT DETAILS. IT IS VITAL THAT WE ARE ABLE TO CONTACT PATIENTS IN A TIMELY AND EFFICIENT MANNER SO PLEASE UPDATE US AS SOON AS YOU CHANGE YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER/ADDRESS/NAME, ETC.
FLU CLINICS 2018/19: WE ARE NOW BOOKING OUR FLU CLINICS. FOR DETAILS OF DATES, PLEASE GO TO THE 'SERVICES' TAB AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE AND FOLLOW THE 'FLU CLINICS' LINK.
The next Patient Participation Group meeting will be on Tuesday 8 January 2019 and will be held at the Beaconsfield Ore Surgery Site. We look forward to seeing you there.
Appointments: We are getting an increasing number of patients arriving at the incorrect site for their appointments. Please ensure that you know where your appointment is, as the Surgery works across 3 sites and we cannot accommodate you if you turn up at the wrong site, as we are extremely busy every day. Our staff do their best to ensure they are clear when giving the appointment details but it is the responsibility of the patients to check where their appointment is actually located. Text reminders are sent to all patients who have provided a mobile number.
During the month of October 2018 148 patients did not attend and did not cancel their appointments. Missed appointments cost the NHS time and money. Please cancel your appointment if you no longer need it so that it can be offered to someone who does need it.
