Welcome to Wellington Practice
“We are open” – we have never closed but we did change how we offered care in the height of the pandemic.
We are offering our normal patient services albeit with a telephone triage process to ascertain if you need to be seen in person on the day or if it can be dealt with in a different way. Don’t forget e-Consult https://wellingtonpractice.webgp.com/ can still be a good choice to access patient care. Full details on our website. We continue to offer routine appointments up to a week ahead, some in person, some on the telephone in addition to an urgent request on the day. Our excellent experienced paramedic can see patients for minor ailments on Monday mornings – it doesn’t have to be the GP.
It is not uncommon for out telephone lines to be very busy especially first thing in the morning so please do bear with us.
Repeat prescriptions can all be done via your own online patient access or via your nominated chemist (pharmacy). Only very few prescriptions need to be paper based and we fully encourage electronic prescriptions, they are safer, more secure and easier to track.
If you have a chronic long term condition, and you are due for an annual review, you will be invited for an annual review during your birth month. We will be trying to reduce the amount of appointments you need to attend and cover all topics as efficiently as possible. It is important you attend these appointments when invited.
If your contact details have changed recently, especially your mobile phone number, please ensure you update these while contacting the practice or email us at email@example.com
