IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
Entrance to Ling House Medical Centre is currently restricted for the safety of patients and staff.
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic the NHS has asked GPs to run a TOTAL TRIAGE appointment system until further notice. This is important to reduce avoidable footfall in the practices and protect patients and staff from the risks of infection.
All patients requesting an appointment will be managed remotely (online, phone, video). Patients will be seen face to face only in exceptional circumstances. Any patients visiting the surgery must wear a face covering to protect patients and staff.
Please ring the surgery at 8.30am to arrange an appointment. To submit an eConsult (which is available 24:7) please click the blue eConsult banner on the home page of our website and a GP will respond within 24 working hours. Should you wish to arrange a telephone appointment please click on the 'Book an Appointment' tab at the top of our website to see availability. Alternatively you can call reception who can book a telephone appointment for you or signpost you to the most appropriate service.
If you are on regular medication, now would be the time to commence online ordering and nominate a local pharmacy to receive your prescription. Please telephone reception and they will activate this facility for you. Alternatively you can hand deliver your prescription request by placing it in the post-box at the front door of the practice or send it through the post to us.
Due to the current increase in demand, please allow four working days for prescription requests to be processed. Thank you.
