Help Your GP to Help You
Make the most of your GP Appointment
Help reduce the time it takes to see a GP by ensuring that booked surgery appointments really are necessary. If you give the receptionist a brief outline of what the issue is, they can direct you to the best person to deal with your problem. This may be a nurse, advanced nurse practitioner or a GP.
Many minor problems can be dealt with by the local chemist, e.g. warts, verrucae, athlete’s foot, head lice, threadworms and minor ailments such as coughs and colds. It is possible to book a “telephone consultation” when you think you don’t need to see the GP in person, e.g. to discuss your medication or a recent test result.
