News about the Appointment System
Following feedback from patients from the start of February 2016 the appointment system will be changing to give more “on the day” appointments in morning surgeries. Prebookable appointments with the doctor of your choice are still available and in the afternoons we are able to offer longer (15 minute) appointments to help patents with more complex problems. There are also more slots for telephone consultations for patients who may not need to see the doctor face to face. We would welcome feedback on how the system is working.
The surgery now has two salaried doctors (Dr Free McKenna and Dr Andrew Halsall) in the team.
We are pleased to welcome Dr Laura Fadden as a new partner to the practice
Dr Nicola Culkin has returned from maternity leave in January and is working in the surgery on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Drs Redmond and Shiffman have now reduced to working part time (generally with Dr Redmond working on Thursday and Friday and Dr Shiffman on Monday and Tuesday)
