Half Day Closure

Please be advised that Stennack Surgery will be closed from 1.00pm to 6.30pm on Thursday 22 February 2024.

This is so all staff can undertake training and development to ensure our patients continue  to receive the best possible service.

Our phone lines will be open for urgent, on the day queries, only. All calls will be diverted to our external call handlers who have been instructed to only pass calls of an urgent nature through to the Surgery.

To avoid frustration and disappointment, please do not try to call the Surgery unless it is urgent.

The Surgery Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) will be open, however, will also be running a limited service on this day.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Stennack Surgery Team

The surgery and Minor Injuries Unit is open from 08:00-20:00 Monday-Friday. 

Our telephone lines are also open 08:00-20:00 Monday-Friday, but between 08:00-8:30, 13:00-14:00 and 18:00-20:00 we are open for urgent telephone queries and minor injuries only.

When you contact the Stennack Surgery

The Stennack Surgery now operates an Care Navigation system which has been designed using NHS England guidance. 

This system has been put into place by the GP Partners so we can get the right type of help for you as quickly as possible.  When you contact the surgery our trained reception team will ask you for more information about the medical reason for your contact.  This information will be used to direct you to the most appropriate member of our Stennack Team this may include a member of our Nursing Team, Mental Health Practitioners, Physios, Practice Pharmacist or one of our GPs.

All our reception team have received both face-face training by EPI and online training and use red flag protocols devised from national guidance.
