 The Wood Medical Practice

Blood Pressure Monitors ( posted on Jun 11, 2012 )

We offer a service where patients can hire electronic blood pressure monitors for 3 days.  There is a £20 deposit which is refunded on return of the monitor.  If your GP feels this is necessary, he/she will ask you to arrange an appointment at the reception desk.  This service is run by one of our receptionists and she will show you how to work the blood pressure monitor and record the reading.

Phlebotomists ( posted on Jun 11, 2012 )

We have several phlebotomists within the practice who are trained in taking blood and also blood pressure. You can arrange an appointment with them at the reception desk.

Surgeries Running Late ( posted on Jun 11, 2012 )

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience you have experienced with surgeries running late. We operate a 10 minute appointment system and if you have multiple medical problems, please arrange a double appointment and this will help to ensure the GPs do not run late.

Missed Appointments ( posted on Jun 11, 2012 )

We have a significant amount of appointments which patients fail to attend.  This means we have fewer appointments available for people who really need our help.  Please cancel if you cannot attend.  Our policy within the practice is that if a patient fails to attend 3 or more appointments, they will be sent a letter warning them that if they miss a further appointment, they may be put off the practice list.  This is at the discretion of the GPs.
