Open Surgery is Changing

From 1st September open surgery will be changing.

  • Open surgery will start at 09:00
  • Nurse practitioners as well as GPs will see patients
  • Reception will triage to ensure you are seen by the most appropriate clinician
  • 12 patients will be seen in open surgery spread across all the doctors and nurse practitioners on the day
  • All patients will therefore be seen quicker and open surgery should be finished be 09:40

Nurse practitioners are medical professionals who can prescribe, request tests and refer patients.
