Welcome to The James Street Family Practice 

JSFP


On behalf of the Partners; Drs Mowat, Ko, Mathew, Henderson and our Managing Partner Jackie, welcome to our surgery.

The surgery is open between 8.00am - 6.30pm Monday to Friday (except Wednesday when we close between 1.00pm and 2.30pm).  The Dispensary is open between 9.00am - 6.00pm, as above.  We are closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

As part of our commitment to more personalised care for more patients with longterm conditions, all patients aged 75 and over will have a named accountable GP. This is in line with new government regulations.

We'll be working hard to ensure all relevant patients are contacted by 30th June 2014. This may mean we write to you, or may mean we tell you at your next appointment. In some cases, this information may be passed to you with your next prescription.

If you are 75yrs and over, we will be contacting you over the coming months, to let you know who the name of your named accountable GP.
 
HOWEVER, you can still see the GP of your choice whenever you need to see a doctor- you don't have to see your named accountable GP if you prefer not to.

You do not need to take any action on this, but please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you would like any more information about this.

 Appointments

James Street Family Practice now has an appointment system that guarantees you will be seen within one working day.  The best way to book an appointment is by phone.  Ring the Practice on 01507 611122, give a brief description of your problem (you do not have to do this, but it helps us to know who the best person is for your to talk to).  Your telephone number will be taken and a doctor or nurse practitioner will call you back.  Should you need to be seen, an appointment will be booked directly with the clinician at a mutually convenient time.  As a top-tip, for routine reviews or results please try to avoid ringing on Mondays or the day after a Bank Holiday as they tend to be busy!

Online Appointment Booking

We are now able to offer our Patients the opportunity to pre-book a telephone appointment with a GP online.  The appointments available will be for a telephone call-back from the GP only, similar to if you had called in the Surgery that morning and requested an appointment over the telephone.

You will need to come into the Surgery and ask the Receptionist for your log-in details to access online services.  Once  registered, you will be able pre-book a telephone consultation with a GP and also order your repeat prescriptions if required.

PLEASE NOTE: the slots available for pre-booking will be at 08:15 hours - this is not necessarily when you will receive your call back, although it will be as near to then as possible.
