If you need to make an appointment please call us on 01473 741349 where a Care Navigator will be able to help and advise you.

The Practice staff have been given specialist training in care navigation to help them direct patients to the right health professional first time. When a patient contacts the practice, the care navigator will ask for a brief outline of the problem so they can identify the patient’s need. This will allow the care navigator to refer to information about services in the practice, other NHS providers and the wider care and support sector. Where appropriate, they will direct the patient to these services. Their goal is to ensure that patients get the right care at the right time in the right place with the right outcome.
