Emergency appointments 08:00-08:30 In response to the evolving concerns relating to the Coronavirus and to enable our ongoing ability to provide essential medical care we have changed our booking process so that all appointments will be triaged by a clinician on the telephone. The clinician will then decide if a face to face appointment is appropriate. Please do NOT enter the building for an appointment unless one of our clinicians has telephoned and advised you to attend You can also request an online consultation at www.ryemedicalcentre.com/online-consultation-system Tell us about your problem and request medical advice, or ask an administrative question and we’ll respond usually within 2-3 hours if the request is submitted before 2pm on our usual practice working days.




GP Surgery at Ferry Road

Could patients please ring at 8:30 on the day to be included for this (as they would for a normal appointment) This way the GP can plan their list. A GP will then call them back, and either deal with the problem/query over the phone or give the patient a time slot to attend the surgery if they feel appropriate. Patients can also contact the surgery via the 'Online consultation' section on our website - www.ferryroadhealthcentre.net They fill out a form with their details and their enquiry and they will either receive a response electronically (usually within four hours if received before 7:30 am 11:30am) or the GP will call them.
