Noticeboard

Monday 16th July

We are currently short staffed any regrettably only able to deal with urgent medical problems today. If your problem is not urgent please consider visiting the pharmacy or the Walk-in Centre at Dewsbury Hospital. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Telephone Lines - Update 16.07.18

We are aware of a number of on-going problems with our new telephone system, and have issued our telephone provider with a number of changes to be made which should alleviate many of the issues. We apologise that these problems have not been resolved sooner and hope that phones will be working better very soon. Thank you for you patience and co-operation.

If you are calling for anything non-urgent such as results, prescription queries or a routine appointment with a nurse or healthcare assistant, please telephone us after 11am to help ease congestion early in the morning.

***NEW TELEPHONE NUMBER***

Please be aware that we have recently changed our main telephone number. Please make sure you save this number for future reference: 01274 399505. Calls to the old number will be diverted.


Ordering Prescriptions

From 1st April 2016, please allow 48 hours before collecting your prescription.

Telephoning the Surgery

We have changed the way that your call is handled by our automated system. When you telephone the surgery you will now be given 4 options. Please listen carefully and select the option most suitable to your enquiry. We hope that this will make it easier for patients to contact the surgery when they need to, and welcome feedback on the system.

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

We are now live with electronic prescribing - ask at your pharmacy for a nomination form - your prescription can then be sent direct to them to be dispensed.

DOCTORS’ AVAILABILITY

All our doctors at Greenway in Cleckheaton work part-time in the practice to varying degrees. Times for individual doctors can vary from week to week. The receptionist will be happy to give details on request. You can choose which doctor you wish to see, but remember all the doctors are not in surgery every day.

We now offer later appointments on Tuesday evenings and alternate Wednesday evenings, when appointments are available up to 7.30pm and early morning appointments on Thursdays and alternate Wednesdays  from 7.30am

Symptom Checker

Why not check your symptoms here first before calling the doctor.

Seeing a doctor in Surgery

The Greenway Medical practice is pleased to have introduced a new system to help you get the appointment you need when you need it.  This started on 29th April 2013.

This is how it works

1.   Call us on the main surgery telephone number and ask to make an appointment with the doctor.

2    The receptionist will ask you for your name and your telephone number.  If you need to speak to

      the doctor urgently, because it is an emergency, tell the receptionist straight away.

 

3. The receptionist will ask you to say generally what your health problem is.  You don’t have to tell     

    the receptionist if you don’t want to.  But if you can, it helps the doctor decide whom to prioritise for

     a call back based on clinical need.

 

4. If you want to talk to a specific doctor, tell the Receptionist.  Wherever possible they will arrange it.

 

5. The doctor will ring you back as soon as they can, usually within 30 minutes.  If you want us to call you    

    between certain times, then tell us, where possible, we will arrange that.

 

6. If you doctor thinks you need to come into the surgery to be seen, or if you would still like to come in, he

    or she will make an appointment for you.
