Topcliffe Surgery is now connected to the NHS App which is the quickest and easiest way of connecting to online services. It provides a simple and secure way for people to access a range of NHS services on their smartphone or tablet.
Patients should visit: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/ for the latest patient information on how to register for, and use this App. This App is managed by NHS England and is outside of local practice administration. Use the NHS App to:
- check your symptoms
- find out what to do when you need help urgently
- book and manage appointments at your GP surgery
- order repeat prescriptions
- securely view your GP medical record
- register to be an organ donor
- choose how the NHS uses your data
If you are already registered for GP online services through the surgery, you can still register for the NHS App. You can use your existing linkage key/account ID information provided when registering with the practice to set up your NHS App. Your linkage key and Account ID can be found on your account under: Your Profile/My Account. Alternatively for patients not already registered for online services, you will be required to upload a driving licence or a passport and will be guided to take a short video of yourself to verify your identity.
The NHS App is now the preferred method for patients of Topcliffe to access online services. However, we will also continue to support online services with existing platform providers Evergreen Life and Patient Access as it has done over the last few years. Please use the links at the top of this page and on our home page.
Appointments can also be booked in person and over the telephone. When you make an appointment please make it clear if you wish to see a particular doctor.
Appointments are routinely booked for 10 minutes. Please ask if you require longer than that. It may not be possible to deal with more than one or two issues properly in 10 minutes, so please bear that in mind when making your appointment.
Two doctors are usually available for consultations each day, but this may be reduced during holidays or due to other commitments.
There is a mixture of appointments available for each doctor:
- half can be booked up to several weeks ahead for reviews and more routine issues
- and half can be booked on the day for the more urgent problems that need to be dealt with that day. More same day appointments will be used at times of GP absence
We are committed to providing a good, safe and accessible service. If all appointments for that day have already been taken, but you feel your problem needs to be assessed that day, please let the receptionist know and you will be advised when to attend.
Please try and help us to make best use of our service by planning ahead when possible. That will result in more of the same day slots being available for those who do need to be seen that day.
The nurses offer appointments in the morning and evening with their earliest appointments being 8:00am and 15:30pm respectively. Appointments are routinely booked for 10 minutes. Please ask if you require a longer appointment.
There are no bookable appointments on Thursday afternoon. If you have an urgent problem requiring advice or assessment, please ring the surgery number. The answering service will ask for the on call doctor to ring you back and make appropriate arrangements to help.
