In accordance with guidance received from the NHS and Public Health England, we continue to review and have changed how we provide appointments to ensure the safety of patients and colleagues.
Appointments can be arranged by telephone or online through the NHS app.
If a clinician is currently actively working with you to manage your condition / illness, we will aim for you to have continuity of care with that person. At this time, we are however unable to specify a clinician, if it is not an active condition.
Please be aware that we are unable to provide you with a specific time when a clinician will call, but we can indicate how many other people are on the list before you. You should expect a call from Danebridge Medical Practice.
Should the clinician need further information, they may arrange a video consultation; request that you send a picture through a secure text message; or you may be invited for a face to face appointment.
You should arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment and you will be greeted by a member of our Patient Services Team. You should wear a face mask, if you have one.
Unless you are advised to do so by a clinician, please DO NOT visit Danebridge Medical Practice if you or your household have any Coronavirus symptoms. If you believe that you have Coronavirus and your symptoms are serious or are getting worse, please visit NHS 111 online where you will be advised if further medical help is required.
A Phlebotomist is available at Danebridge each day between 8.30am and 14.30pm by appointment, to take blood samples as requested by the doctor.
You may telephone, or call at the surgery for the results of any tests carried out. You can ring 01606 544544 option 4. To avoid busy times, please enquire between 11.00am – 12.00 noon or 3.00pm – 5.00pm.
Please allow at least 5 working days for all results to be returned to us and be commented upon by your Doctor. Please be aware that some results can however take up to 2 weeks to be processed. In the interests of confidentiality, your results will only be given to you or, if under 16 years the parent/guardian. So please DO NOT ask somebody else to call on your behalf to obtain your test results.
When you join the practice, you will be asked to fill in a patient questionnaire. This gives the doctors background information about your past and present medical history, all of which will be treated as confidential. You will also be invited to book an appointment with one of our practice nurses for a new patient check-up when registering. This gives us an opportunity to meet you and your family and tell you about the practice. You will also be asked for photo ID and confirmation of your address.
We carry out minor surgery clinics both at Danebridge and the Kingsmead surgery. Minor surgery is performed under local anaesthetic for a variety of problems, e.g. removal of skin lesions, sebaceous cysts, etc. Vasectomies can be performed at the surgery following consultation with Dr Perry.
A computerised system is run by Cheshire Family Health and you will automatically be advised by post when your smear is due. You will be asked to make an appointment at the smear clinics which are held regularly by the practice team.
We offer a full range of contraceptive services, including the fitting of IUDs (coils) and caps, referral for termination of pregnancy and advice on safer sex.
The practice nurses provide clinics for patients with hypertension (high blood pressure), asthma, COPD, diabetes, coronary heart disease, and for those who need special advice about their diet and help with losing weight.
