SAME DAY URGENT APPOINTMENTS

Please note these important changes to the way appointments will be booked at Medwyn Surgery starting from 12th February 2018.

When you call the surgery with an urgent medical problem the receptionist will offer you a telephone call back and ask for your preferred contact number.  Please give the receptionist a brief description of your problem so that the nurse practitioner or doctor can give your problem the right attention.

A doctor or a nurse practitioner will return your call within one hour to discuss your problem.  A maximum of two attempts will be made to make contact so please stay by your phone until contact has been made.

There are a number of options as a result of the call back:

  • Advice or treatment without visiting the surgery
  • An appointment that day to see a nurse practitioner or doctor
  • A future appointment to see a doctor
  • If required, an investigation such as a blood test or x-ray may be arranged before you are seen
  • A home visit

Parking at the surgery?  Parking in the Pay & Display car park is the responsibility of the patient and if you are kept waiting for an appointment,  you will need to ensure that you top up the meter accordingly. Please speak to a receptionist and let them know you've left the surgery to top up your parking.  Unfortunately the surgery can no longer provide letters of support for any penalty ticket appeal.

Medwyn Surgery is an accredited NHS training practice for undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors (Specialist Training GP Registrars).

GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who have completed hospital training and wish to pursue a career in general practice. They spend up to twelve months at Medwyn to improve their consulting skills and widen their experience in primary healthcare. The GP registrars hold daily surgeries like the other doctors at the practice and are mentored by a GP trainer. Dr Chris Monella, Dr Stewart Tomlinson and Dr Raj Sekhon are all approved trainers for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Postgraduate Deanery.

Occasionally, medical students from St George's Hospital in London will be attached to Medwyn Surgery. During their time at the practice they will observe consultations with the doctor or nurse. This is an essential part of training the next generation of doctors who could be responsible for your future care. Reception staff will always ask if you agree to a medical student oberving your consultation. If you would prefer not to have a student present during your consultation please let us know.
