Our New Same Day and Pre-bookable Clinics
In response to patients’ calls for more appointments, North Brink Practice has introduced a new nurse-led clinics format for the benefit of all.
Nurse-led clinics are run by nurses and clinically supervised by a GP. This means that patients benefit from the medical advice they need, but the GP is freed up to see 4-times as many patients in the same available time.
Since Monday 5 October 2015, both Same Day appointments and Pre-bookable appointments now follow this new format. Patients are able to pre-book with the GP of their choice, although that GP works with a team of up to 4 nurses. Although this means that you will not spend as long with your GP, we anticipate that it will be easier for you to book into their nurse-led clinic and therefore reduce your waiting time. If the GP decides that they wish to see you for longer than the clinic-format allows, the GP is able to book you in for a longer appointment as necessary.
We recognise that this is different for patients and that the new format will not necessarily suit all preferences and medical conditions. But our GP team is convinced that patients will ultimately be better served by improved access to medical care.
From the 1st September 2015 the local OOH Service (Out of Hours) no longer runs within North Brink Practice. It is now operating from the North Cambs Hospital.
