Appointments

To make an appointment please call at reception or telephone 01529 303301 and provide the receptionist with brief details of the illness or problem.

If it is an urgent problem, the receptionist will find a suitable appointment or inform you that a doctor will phone you. Please give as much notice as you can for routine appointments, as we will then be able to offer a wider choice of times.

Where possible try to see the same doctor throughout one illness or problem so that they are familiar with your treatment and progress. However, when your doctor is not available you may be seen by any one of the other doctors.  

If you struggle with mental health, or mental health related issues, you can self refer to SPA (Mental Health). The telephone number for SPA is: 03031234000, alternatively you can refer via their website: http://www.lpft.nhs.uk/steps2change/ and follow the links to the self-referral page.

Please note: Sleaford Medical Group adheres to stringent safety measures regarding medications as per NICE guidelines (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) some medications require blood tests or BP monitoring. Failure to respond to invitation for these blood tests will result in medications being stopped.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to offer the appointment slot to someone else.  You can cancel your appointment via SystmOnline. You will need a SystmOnline login which can be obtained by bringing photo ID into the practice. You can also cancel your appointment by selecting Option 4 when phoning the surgery main telephone number.
