MORE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE NOW!

There are now extra routine primary care appointments available, making it easier for you to get an appointment at a time to suit you.

The practice offers a virtual clinical pharmacist service. This is a telephone service for patients who: need to speak to a pharmacist regarding a medication issue; but don’t need to come to the surgery. The pharmacists are able to prescribe and organise prescriptions electronically.  Please speak to the reception team for further information on how to book one of these appointments.

 

There are also Saturday morning routine appointments from 9-12pm available through our extended access service at Rutland Lodge Medical Practice. This increased availability is an extension of the services offered by your practice and is provided by a range of clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.

Please note, this is not a walk-in service – you still need to make an appointment via your own GP practice. Extended Access appointments are for routine general practice issues and not for urgent care. If your practice is closed and you are unwell please call NHS 111.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
