Message from the Practice Manager - April 2020
I wanted to thank our patients for their co-operation during this really difficult time. I know its hard and you have respected the fact that we are also under tremendous pressure.
The receptionists have been asked to triage patients over the phone so they need to ask questions, this is to safeguard themselves as well as other patients so please remember to respect our team who are doing a wonderful job just being at the end of the phone every day.
We are doing our very best to provide our community with as much support as possible. You can contact us on 01322 334884 if you are concerned and we will do our very best to assist you.
Once again, your honesty and co-operation is really appreciated in this instance. Stay safe - Alexandra Toal

We have introduced a new efficient way providing follow up for patients after blood tests or scans or any hospital investigations.
Patient will be required to book a telephone consultation after their hospital investigations with the GP who requested it to maintain continuity of care with the doctor and prompt results.
On average blood results can take 10 days to 2 weeks, hospital scan results can take 2-4 weeks. Patients can book these telephone consultations after their blood test or scans.
Our reception staff will also be able to call you and book these appointments, please make sure we have your up to date contact numbers. You could do this via our online services or to visit the surgery to amend this.

Welcome to Slade Green & Colyers Lane Medical Centres
This website was set up for your help and guidance. The details may be subject to change from time to time, so please check with the reception staff who will be happy to assist you.
We currently employ 7 Receptionists which includes a Head Receptionist, who will try in every way to help you. In addition, we also have a dedicated Prescription clerk to help with our repeat prescriptions. Our current turnaround time for repeat prescriptions is 48 working hours so please make sure you make allowances for this.
Our Receptionists are trying to do a difficult and demanding job, often working under extreme pressure. Please remember the Receptionists carry out their duties, as instructed by the Doctors, with the intention of making the Practice run safely and smoothly.
Therefore, if you feel that you are being asked too many questions or kept waiting, this is unintentional. Please try to help by giving the Receptionist the necessary information as she/he needs to try and judge the urgency of the request and whether you need to see the GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant.
