There has been a doctor's surgery at the Boundaries for over 70 years. The present purpose-built premises were opened in 1987 and a large extension was added in 2002.
Our aim is to provide you with the best possible comprehensive medical service. All members of the practice team work closely together and are committed to continuity of care for the whole family.
Vacancy - Part Time Receptionist
We are looking for a receptionist(s) to provide Maternity Cover initially but, with the potential for a long term position. Hours of work will be: Monday 13:30 to 19:00, Wednesday 15:30 to 20:00 and/or Thursday 16:00 to 19:30, Friday 15:30 to 19:00. Good computer and customer service skills needed along with ability to work as part of a team. 5 weeks paid holiday (pro rata) and NHS pension available. For more information please contact the Practice Manager, Mr Kevin Evans or ask at reception for an information pack.
The demands on our Open Surgery continue to increase which has resulted in lengthier waiting times and a higher demand for parking in our small car park. In order to alleviate these growing pressures with effect from 1st February 2017 we are expanding our telephone triage system which will result in all patients being able to discuss their problem with a GP prior to being seen.
If you have an urgent condition that you feel needs to be reviewed that day then please phone reception between 08:30 and 10:00, providing an overview of what the problem is to the receptionist. The GP will then phone you back, as soon as possible, to discuss further and arrange an appointment later in the morning, if deemed appropriate. Please ensure that you remain obtainable on the number you wish to be phoned back on and that when the GP calls the telephone number will be withheld.
We continue to ask that all non-urgent problems, medication reviews, repeat prescriptions and sick notes (which can be backdated), or problems that need followed up should be booked into a routine appointment with a GP and if you have multiple or complex problems then request a double appointment.
Remember that both Chawton Park Surgery or Alton Health Centre offer a minor injuries walk in service which is offered between 8am and 6.30pm to any patient who is able to walk and who has had an accident during the last 24 hours over weekdays or 48 hours over weekends. They are able to take X-Rays and stitch and dress wounds.
Also your local pharmacist can provide information on treatment of minor conditions and healthy living, as well as medication advice.
All dental problems should be discussed with your dentist or you can access urgent dental care by calling NHS 111.
Many thanks for your help during this change, which will hopefully avoid long open surgery waits.
