Please be aware to protect patients and minimise infection all appointments will be triaged through a telephone call with GP or nurse initially at this time.
To get the most out of your virtual consultations use the following tips:
Extended Access is the offer of pre-bookable appointments outside GP practices’ core contractual hours, either in the early morning, evening or at weekend. These are provided by PDS, CHOC and local practices across the Bay. There are a range of appointments we can offer our patients in addition to practice appointments, please ask our team. For more information about extended access visit mbpcc.co.uk/extended-access
or to download information on the Extended Access Services currently available in Barrow & Millom click here.
Home Visits are provided only for patients who are too unwell to attend surgery. If you feel you need a visit please try to call before 11:00 am. Visits normally take place from 10am onwards.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
Please request test results from reception between 2:00pm and 6:00pm. The receptionist will tell you if you need to speak to or see a doctor. Results can take between a few days and a few weeks to come back.
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.
