APPOINTMENT INFORMATION LEAFLET

 

 

Our Practice List size continues to grow as Beauly and the surrounding area are developing, which means an increasing workload for the practice to manage. In order to do this we have to monitor and try to continuously improve the quality of our services in order to deliver a safe, efficient and effective service for all our patients.  Therefore we have made some changes to our appointment system in order to meet the demands of our rising patient population.

 

In order for patients to consult with the most appropriate healthcare professional the receptionist will need to ask questions and then direct you to the most appropriate professional. ie Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Doctor.  You may also be directed to other health professional where appropriate, Pharmacy, Optician, Physio etc.

 

Our Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) is highly skilled and qualified to deal with a wide variety of on the day requests. Lisa (ANP) will triage requests, see patients and refer patients on to another healthcare professional where necessary.  

                                                                                                                                                    

 

 

 

We have telephone appointments where you can speak to our ANP or if more appropriate speak with a GP for a routine telephone consultation.

 

If a home visit is required please contact us before 10am that day. The GP visiting will phone you before they visit so please be available to take the call.
