The practice currently offers appointment booking by telephone and by booking in person at reception. Unless your appointment is urgent please book in advance. The urgent appointments given out are reserved for serious illness of an acute nature; when these appointments are taken by patients with non-urgent issues they cause a potential risk to other patients’ safety and well-being.
The appointment telephone numbers are as follows:
Belgrave Medical Centre: 0114 2554 498
White Lane Medical Centre: 0114 2399 211
Please note that the practice’s ability to provide sufficient appointments to patients depends on patients attending; where you cannot attend an appointment for any reason, please let us know at the earliest opportunity.
Patients that regularly fail to attend appointments will be removed from the practice list.
We operate at the above 2 sites with a single patient list, so if there are no appointments left at one, you may be able to visit the other site.
If you require an interpreter, please let us know when you book the appointment. We regularly offer patients access to our in-house interpreters with Arabic, French, Flemish, Hakka, Cantonese, Mandarin, Urdu and Punjabi interpretation.
If enough notice is given, other languages can be catered for.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.
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.
DROPPING OFF SAMPLES
If you have been asked to bring in a sample to the surgery then please ensure that it is delivered to us before 12:30pm. The bottle should have your first and surname, date of birth and NHS number written clearly
The practice will NOT ACCEPT samples brought in after 12:30pm as we have no means of delivering them to the hospital laboratory for processing.
If your first name, surname, date of birth and NHS number are not on the sample the hospital laboratory will refuse to process it so please double check
If you are coming to see a clinician about any of the following symptoms then please ask at reception for a sample bottle when you check in as you will need to provide a urine sample during your appointment.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not accept urine samples that have not been requested by a clinician except in the above circumstances when you actually have an appointment. If you have symptoms or think you need your urine checking then you should be clinically assessed first. - see urine samples for more information
Please call after 10.30 to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
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.
