 LUNCHTIME CLOSING - we are not having lunch-

The lunchtime break allows reception staff to handover between morning and afternoon sessions. This period needs to be uninterrupted so there can be a safe and efficient handover.

A doctor’s working day comprises of administration as well as seeing patients. The administration component of being a GP has increased considerably over the years and can sometimes take up to 50% of the working day. During the break in between surgeries, the doctor will read and action hospital letters, complete referrals and tasks from the surgery, answer queries, check blood tests, issue medications, conduct home visits and deal with any emergencies.

There are also regular meetings with district nurses, community matrons and social workers to discuss complex cases. In addition, the doctors and nurses have a responsibility to complete frequent audits to ensure care and quality is maintained. Furthermore, practice meetings also take place to discuss any issues or improvement projects within the practice. Educational meetings allow doctors and nurses to keep our skills and knowledge up to date. All of these tasks ensure that the practice runs as efficiently and safely as possible.

Staff continue to work during this one hour closing and the surgery is always manned and accessible by phone (except Wednesday pm as above)

* Extended opening for working people/commuters

** Please note Wednesday afternoon is our half day and we are technically closed. The phone lines divert to the out-of-hours services from 13:00 but we keep our premises at Corbets Tey open for some routine / pre-booked clinics and there is a receptionist available to deal with routine admin queries.
