Telephone appointments

To prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) there have been changes to GP or ANP appointments.  Initially you will be able to book a telephone or video consultation.  If the GP or ANP needs to see you they will book you a face-to-face appointment.

But it's still important to get help from a GP if you need it.

Severe Emergencies

If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain or severe bleeding call am ambulance (Telephone: 999) before calling the surgery.

Extended Opening Hours

To comply with Government Guidelines, Temple Hill Group will offer extended access appointments on Saturdays mornings and Improved Access Appointments on Saturday mornings.

Cervical Screening Campaign

The NHS Cervical Screening Programme has made a significant impact on cervical cancer mortality since it was established in 1988, saving an estimated 5,000 lives a year.

However, coverage is at a 20-year low.  The national target for cervical screening coverage is 80% with coverage at its lowest amongst those aged 25 – 35.

To help address this issue, Temple Hill Group is launching a Cervical Screening Campaign.  As well as offering appointment throughout the week we will be improving our access to cervical screening by holding a clinic every Saturday between 08:00 - 13:00.  

Cervical Screening Can Stop Cancer Before It Starts

Don’t Delay Book Your Appointment Today.

Everything you need to know about cervical screening:

Cervical screening, or the “smear test”, is a routine health check that identifies potentially harmful cells and changes on the cervix. Cervical screening is not a test for cancer but catching any changes early can reduce your risk of developing cervical cancer. Cervical cancer kills two women every day. Regular screenings can help reduce that number, which is why it’s so important you attend your screening when invited.

Our nurses are trained to do all they can to put you at ease during your appointment and are on hand to answer any questions or concerns you may have. However, whether you attend your screening or not, is ultimately your choice.

If you do have questions or are unable to make your screening during working hours, please call us we as we are able to book a weekend appointment for you.

If you’re due to have a cervical screening, you’ll receive an invite letter/sms text message from the practice.   Don’t ignore it, book your cervical screening here today.

If you missed your previous appointment or are unsure if you are due a screening, please contact us and we will book you an appointment if you’re due.
