Welcome to Queens Road Surgery
PLEASE NOTE WE HAVE HAD A NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM INSTALLED ON 14TH MAY 2019. PLEASE LISTEN TO THE MESSAGE AND THE OPTIONS CAREFULLY AND SELECT THE MOST APPROPRIATE OPTION FOR YOUR CALL TO BE DEALT WITH.
We have changed over to a new provider and it is taking a bit of time to get it working as we had intended.
Please bear with us, if you do experience any issues with the new phone system. We are working hard to try and rectify any problems, as they occur.
Our website is designed to provide clear help and information for our patients and those they care for in an easy and convenient format.
You can check surgery opening times and let us know what you think of the service we provide.

Active Signposting is one of the ten NHS England High Impact Actions that practices can take to free up GP time. Active Signposting is designed to connect patients more directly with the most appropriate source of help or advice; this may include services in the community as well as within the Practice.
All of the reception/admin team here at Queens Road Surgeryhave undergone both online and face-to-face training in order to go live with Active Signposting within our Practice.
Active Signposting will offer the patient ‘choice’ to access the service that is most appropriate for them. Reception staff will not ‘triage’ patients; instead acting as Care Navigators they will be able to connect the patient more directly with the most appropriate professional or service in our area. Sign Posters (Care Navigators) do not make clinical decisions but when a patient presents with symptoms that could be dealt with by a pharmacist, optician or a social prescribing service they will confidently offer these alternatives.
This new initiative gives patients more control over their own care because it offers them the choice of a service that better suits their health and wellbeing needs. Active Signposting also improves access for patients who do need to see a GP, as patients who do not necessarily need to see a GP are directed to a more appropriate service.
Active Signposting aims to change the assumption that GPs are the first point of care for patients – this benefits patients by improving outcomes and creating a better experience, which in turn improves job satisfaction for our hardworking and dedicated reception/admin staff.
