Message For Patients :
Your local NHS is seeking your views about the best times and locations for GP (doctor) and nurse appointments in the evenings and weekends.
Nationally the NHS has asked local practices to review the times to provide appointments at evenings and weekends. We want to capture information to support decision-making and make sure we are providing times, and locations that meet the needs of local people.
We are holding a webinar on the 11th July at 7pm to obtain the thoughts of our patients. Please click the following link to register for the event. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/377165330657
Welcome To Townfield Doctors Surgery
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
At the Townfield Doctors Surgery reserved car parking spaces are marked near the front entrance. There are also indicated spaces for disabled patients. Wheelchair access to the building is via a ramp near the front entrance. Patient services are provided at ground floor level; however, a lift is provided to access the first floor.
