TELEPHONE TRIAGING - OUR SYSTEM
Trescobeas Surgery operates a telephone triage system. To book an appointment ring 01326 315615.
The Receptionist will ask you about your medical problem and its urgency. This is to ensure:
1. You are directed to the right service, whether that be a GP, Pharmacy, Minor Injury Unit or Emergency Department
2. Ascertain which of our clinicians are best placed to deal with your medical problem. Continuity of care is really important to us and so linking you to the right doctor or nurse is key
3. Give the clinician an indication of your medical problem so they can pre prepare for your appointment
The receptionist will then give you a 30 minute window in which the Doctor will ring you. The Doctor will then discuss your problem with you and decide whether they need to see you and arrange a mutually convenient appointment, allocating the correct amount of time for your problem
If you are unsure whether you need to speak to a Doctor please see the self help section below
If you live in Flushing or Mylor please contact the Surgery on 01326 315615 to book at appointment
