Making It Easier For You To Access Health Care

We know it can be difficult to get an appointment at your GP surgery.

Part of the reason for this is that many face-to-face appointments are used for problems that could be better dealt with over the telephone.

Similarly, patients who just want to discuss something over the telephone have to queue up for a face to face appointment because they have difficulty getting a telephone consultation.

In response to this, we are introducing a new telephone service to help you get the appointment you need.

From 28th March 2017, this surgery will be offering new telephone consultations, Monday to Friday. When you call the surgery, if you are offered the new service, your details will be taken and a GP not based at the practice will call you back within a few hours at a pre-arranged time. This GP has full access to your records and Beechwood administration services and can organize whatever is needed just as your usual GP does.

If you need to be seen by a GP, the GP you speak to will book you a face-face appointment with a GP at Beechwood Medical Centre later that same day.

Children under 2 and patients with visual conditions such as rashes will be directly booked into a face-to-face appointment, unless you specifically request a telephone call.

Beechwood Medical Centre will continue to run its own telephone triage system alongside this new service.

If you have any queries about the telephone service, please contact reception.

Thank you for your patience at this time of change, and we hope you find new the new service beneficial.


We are sad to announce that Dr Mark Rastall will be retiring from our GP Partnership on the 9th December 2016 having been a Partner for some 20 years.

The good news however is that Dr Rastall will continue to practice as a locum GP and appointments will still be available to see him here at Beechwood for the foreseeable future

Commencing 1st July 2016 there will be no walk up appointments available at weekends. All Saturday and Sunday appointments will be pre-booked only

Automated Telephone Booking System

Did you know you can book, cancel or amend appointments at any time of the day or night? To do this you simply need to have your telephone number registered at the Practice and to know your own date of birth. Then you simply ring the normal Practice telephone number and select the automated option. You will then be given options to choose the appointment that you want. The system is designed for routine appointments only and also has a repeat prescription facility. Therefore you can book an appointment or repeat prescription from anywhere in world at any time of the day or night. Please ensure that you keep your registered telephone number up-to-date to use this service. The telephone number remains at local geographic rates.
