APPOINTMENTSDaily clinics and triage clinics
Our GPs are in clinic daily, Monday to Friday, but excluding Bank Holidays. We operate a system called Direct to your Doctor. This means that a patient telephones the surgery to book an appointment for a telephone call with their GP. Their GP (or duty GP in the event of absence) will return the telephone call and discuss how they can help the patient, whether the patient needs to come into the surgery and if so what time would be convenient, if care is urgent or planned, and agree a management plan for the patient. Reception may ask the patient the reason for the telephone appointment in order that the GP may correctly assess how urgently they need to speak to the patient.
For patients who find it more difficult to attend the surgery during normal opening hours, we offer evening and early morning clinics at Liphook and Petersfield as well as clinics on Saturday at Petersfield. Click here for appointment times.
We also have daily clinics staffed by our team of nurses and healthcare assistants, as well as a daily Rapid Access Clinics (staffed by nurse practitioners) for patients who need urgent medical attention.
|GP clinic:||08:30 – 17:30|
|GP early clinic:||07:00 – 08:00|
|GP late clinic:||18:30 - 19:30|
|Nurses clinic:||Daily clinics starting at 09:00|
|HCA clinic:||Daily clinics starting at 08:30|
|Rapid Access clinic:||Daily clinics starting at 09:00|
As part of Direct to your Doctor, some patients may prefer to seek treatment by discussing over the telephone. If their GP feels an examination is necessary then this will be arranged with the GP or a member of the clinical team at the surgery, otherwise the GP will be happy to manage a patient by telephone consultation.
Each morning and afternoon one GP acts as Duty Doctor. This means that they take responsibility for any urgent medical attention needed for a patient where their own GP is not in clinic or if their own GP is unable to safely take on care of any more patients that day./p>

What is Patient Access?
You can now access our GP services at home, work or on the move – wherever you can connect to the internet. What’s more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night. Patient Access is also available on a mobile app which is free for iOS and Android users. If you register with Patient Access the following facilities are available to you:
• Booking, view, amend, cancel and print telephone appointments
• Order, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions
• View allergies, adverse reactions and medications
• Access to detailed coded medical record
It is a contractual requirement for practices to enable patients to have online access to a more detailed version of their medical record (rather than the ‘summary care record’ version currently available online). There are circumstances where a GP may believe it is not in the best interests of the patient to share all information in the record, for example where it could cause harm to their physical or mental health. Before access to your Detailed Coded Record is granted, your medical records will be fully checked by a clinician. It may therefore take 14 days from submitting your application for this access to be granted.
Is my information secure?
All information that is sent to the surgery via Patient Access is secure. Your personal details are encrypted and protected using the highest standard internet security, so it cannot be intercepted. Only you and your GP surgery are able to see this information.
A registration letter will be created at reception for you which will include a PIN number, practice ID, Access ID and your NHS number. All of these details will be needed to create your patient access account.
To complete the registration process you will then need to visit the Patient Access website.

Patients with hypertension are regularly monitored to ensure their condition is being well managed. In addition to this, we are able to monitor blood pressure over 24 hours if clinical staff feels this is appropriate.
We have a team of midwives who run clinics twice weekly at Liphook Village Surgery. If you are pregnant and wish to make your initial appointment with one of the midwives, please contact our reception team. You should plan to see the midwife for your first appointment around the 9th week of your pregnancy. This first appointment is an hour long and called a booking in appointment. The midwife will advise the frequency of antenatal appointments.
We perform a small number of procedures at the surgery. Your GP will identify if a procedure can be performed at the surgery and you will be contacted when our next minor surgery clinic is due to book in. Subsequent management, for example dressings and removal of sutures, will also take place in the surgery.

People utilising this service need not be registered as a permanent patient. Alternatively there are minor injury units at Haslemere District Hospital and Petersfield Community Hospital.

We offer daily phlebotomy services at the surgery. Some blood tests will be requested or authorised by the GP, whilst other tests, for example managing those patients taking warfarin, will be requested by the individual patient themselves. Due to the volume of tests we perform daily, individual patients are responsible for contacting the surgery for the results of their blood tests and we do not release these results to family members unless with the expressed written consent of the patient.
The responsibility for all aspects of preparation for travel abroad must remain with the individual. We offer travel advice and the necessary injections in our travel clinics run by our practice nurses, but it is not a free service and some vaccinations must be paid for.
Initially you will need to carry out a risk assessment with one of the nurses to discuss your travel plans, proposed itinerary and discuss any vaccinations needed. This may also include whether or not malaria prevention tablets are also necessary. Immunisations can take weeks to become effective so in order to ensure enough time for this it is advisable to contact the practice well in advance of your planned departure, at least 6-8 weeks prior to travel. For those with a complicated itinerary or who are intending to go ‘back-packing’ we would recommend contacting us several months in advance if possible.
You will be given the option of providing your travel information via email or by a printed hard copy via the surgery, and a nurse will subsequently advise you via telephone call, text SMS message or via email in response to this (the options of how we respond to you are on the form for you to choose your preferred method of contact). You will then be advised what vaccines are recommended for your trip, and the amount of time that you are likely to need for your travel appointment at the surgery, if necessary. Further appointments may need to be made after this in order to provide further vaccinations. (Please note, when using the email service please check your Junk Mail inbox too, it has been reported that occasionally our responses have been archived into Junk Mail).
To try our online travel service please complete the ‘Travel Risk Questionnaire’ form below and email it to: email@example.com and one of the team will respond to you within 7 to 10 working days.
Advice on all aspects of travel care, malaria and general health advice can be found in our ‘Travel Health Advice Leaflet’ below (Adobe/Acrobat Reader required to view this document). Alternatively you may collect a leaflet from reception if you wish.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. The nurse will advise you of the full cost to be paid.
