This allows the practice to offer an improved quality service for
appointments with GP’s and available time for patients with more complex medical needs and end of life conditions.
Our Reception Team may ask the reason for your appointment.
This will help us to triage and signpost you towards the most appropriate healthcare professional and help you to be seen in a timely manner.
We welcome your valuable feedback to ensure we continue to offer an effective, efficient and improved quality service to our patients here at Ashbourne Medical Practice.
