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.
We aim to provide a high standard of medical care in a friendly and professional manner. We have invested heavily in making our practice and staff user-friendly. You can book appointments online or by telephone 24/7 from anywhere in the world. To use the online system you need to register for the service. The automated telephone system simply requires that your date of birth and telephone number are accurately recorded by the surgery. We have also recently built a new Pharmacy on-site. We will continue to develop the building and our services with your help and support. We care about quality and care about your healthcare.
We are constantly looking to improve what we do and welcome feedback either directly, through our in-practice suggestions box or through your participation in our patient forum. If you would like to join the Group and help us understand patients' needs please inform reception. Please get involved and help us deliver what you want, when you want it.
If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain or severe bleeding call an ambulance (Tel: 999) before calling the surgery.
At Beechwood surgery reserved car parking spaces for disabled patients are marked near the entrance. All services are provided at ground floor level and a disabled patients' WC is provided near the front entrance. A display board informs patients who are hard of hearing when the doctor is ready to see them.
Waiting in the reception area
Parents with small children are requested to exercise some parental control so that other patients, particularly the more fragile, are not excessively disturbed by unsocial behaviour.
