If you phone the Clinic requesting to speak to your doctor, you may be asked to leave a number on which you can be contacted. Most doctors return phone calls at the end of their session (either during their lunch break or at the end of the day). If the matter is urgent, either your doctor, another doctor or the practice nurse will be able to take your call immediately. Please understand that in many instances, the doctor or nurse will be unable to provide advice over the telephone. SHMC is very conscious of the risk of providing incorrect advice over the phone, and wherever possible, patients are encouraged to attend the clinic in person.
Individual Doctors in our Practice determine whether they communicate electronically with their patients. Please ask our staff your GP’s preference. Please note that all steps will be taken to securely send private information, but we cannot guarantee that records sent electronically will be private.
We constantly strive to maintain and improve our quality service and would appreciate any comments or suggestions you may have. Similarly, any complaints are taken seriously. Please do not hesitate to mention your feedback, suggestions or complaints to one of our staff.
However, if you wish to take that matter further and feel that you need to discuss the matter outside the surgery, you may contact:
