Cannot agree with this comments. Me and my husband join this GP 4 months ago, we never had any problems. Sometimes I need emergency appointment, I call reception at 8 am and I'm coming to see doctor few hours later. Receptionists are very busy, but they not rude at all. Always try to help you.

I don't recognise the negative descriptions of the receptionists. They have always been efficient, friendly and helpful towards me. I have had to have a number of appointments and I've never had to wait long past my appointment time and I've had great care from all concerned.

I find that the surgery is much quieter during the university holidays than during term time. That said, I have always found the reception staff extremely friendly and helpful. I think the medical staff are extremely good and always listen and are very good at taking the time to explain test results and, if you need to be referred to hospital, why you need referred and what the potential outcomes might be. I think it is entirely unfair to criticise the staff because the surgery is busy - I think they do a fantastic job of balancing costs and staffing, with the patient experience in an extremely busy surgery where a large number of the patients have poor to no English. An example I overheard in the waiting room - the reception staff at the last minute changed a patient's doctor because they realised she had very little English as she was from Iran and they switched her to a doctor who could talk to her in Farsi.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.
