Beacon Medical Practice is committed to providing you with the best possible access to its services.
Currently, all requests for an appointment are now dealt with by telephone. Your call will be taken by our reception staff and then triaged by a GP or Clinical Practitioner who will be able to offer you a face to face or video consultation if required between the hours of 8am and 6.30pm. Please call us on 01754 897000.
We use this method of communication for the benefits below:
- We respond during working hours Monday to Friday.
- We will always get back to you the same day.
- You can request a particular doctor or nurse (so long as they’re working, dependant on availability).
- It saves you time.
- GPs can manage their time more effectively, booking any follow-up appointments you might need.
Also, for your information:
These are available MONDAY TO FRIDAY 5.30PM TO 8.30PM AND WEEKENDS 8AM TO 7PM (7 days a week, 365 days per year). These need to be booked through Beacon Medical Practice. The practice is closed at the weekend and on Bank Holiday, but appointments are available with the Extended Hours service outside of our working times.
CHILDREN UNDER 14YRS OF AGE
Children Under 14 years of age should ideally be accompanied to their appointment by their parent or legal guardian. However, we do appreciate that this is not always possible and very often relatives or friends are asked to accompany the child on the parent’s behalf.
