Welcome to Newnham Walk Surgery
Outpatient and Specialist Referrals
The Covid19 pandemic has added to the strain on all NHS services. As a result of this, waiting list times for outpatient and specialist appointments and procedures have increased for everybody.
We appreciate that this can cause worry and uncertainty about when you will eventually receive an appointment. The practice has no direct access to the hospital appointment lists.
If you have been referred by your GP/are waiting for :
· An outpatient appointment
· An appointment for hospital tests (eg scans)
· A date for an operation or other treatment
· A follow-up from your hospital team
If you have a query about what is happening, please use the new NHS My Planned Care platform that is available online and will provide direct access to the latest average wait time's for appointments and operations for local hospitals, as well as helpful advice and support.
Only call the practice if your condition has genuinely deteriorated, when you will be reviewed by one of the clinical team and appropriate action can be taken in regard to your care.
Staff at our practice are working extremely hard and doing their best to make sure patients are safe.
Over the last 18 months, the practice has been supporting the pandemic response and ensuring our patients are able to get their COVID-19 vaccinations, at the same time as continuing to deliver primary care services.
This has made our GP practice very busy and our staff have been working incredibly hard to keep services open for patients.
We’re aware patients may have experienced longer wait times on the phone or for their appointment, but we have been working hard to ensure you receive the right treatment from the right person at the right time.
We have increased the number of telephone and online appointments available, so our patients don’t always have to come to the practice. We also employ a range of highly trained staff, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and healthcare assistants who are able to deal with a range of medical conditions, which will help patients get treated sooner.
Whether your appointment is over the telephone, via an online video consultation, or face-to-face, patients will always receive the same high quality standard of care from our practice team.
So please, if you contact our practice, be kind.
Thank you for your patience and support.
