Seeing a doctor or nurse: the standards we aim for:
Urgent problems – A Health Professional on the same day
Routinely – The doctor or nurse of your choice – within five of their working days
The Surgery has a contractual requirement to provide a named and accountable GP for over all of our patients.
By 31 March 2016 all practices will need to include on their website reference to the fact that all patients, including children have been allocated a named, accountable GP.
We have allocated your named GP by post code as follows:-
You may still, of course, see your GP of choice.
Appointments with a Registrar for birth and deaths can now be booked via The Council Customer Service Centre on 0344 800 8020. Customers can call between 09:00 - 17:00 Monday to Friday and book their appointment to register a birth or death at the best office for them, at the earliest or most convenient time.
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.
Please try to telephone reception as soon as possible if you require a home visit.
Litcham Health Centre has its own practice community team, experienced nurses and health care assistants who are able to do a home visits if necessary. However we do encourage our patient to visit surgery for they appointments as it is much safer to do a clinical assessment within a medical environment.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
Please call between 13:00 and 15:00 to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
