ANIMA is available Monday to Friday from 8 AM
ONCE Anima is up to maximum capacity, it will be turned off until 8 am the next working day.
Please contact the Practice if you need medical assistance
If you require urgent medical treatment over the weekend please see information at the bottom of this page.
Demand on our services via Anima, telephones and walk in patients has increased significantly since the easing of lockdown restrictions. To enable us to continue to safely delivery core services to our patients we may from time to time have to temporarily suspend Anima so that it does not compromise patient safety.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, practices have reported significant increases in Anima out of core hours, impacting on the safe delivery of core services, temporarily suspending Anima is a local decision as there is a recognised risk to patient and general practice staff safety.
It is no longer compulsory in General Practice to wear a face mask unless it is your personal preference
The Right Care from the Right Person
Nearly everyone who calls a GP practice to make an appointment asks to see to a GP, but very often help will be available from other highly skilled medical professionals such as Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Pharmacist, Practice Nurse, Health Care Assistant and GP Assistant, or from other services, including the voluntary sector, who can support people with a wide range of social, emotional or practical needs
Our Reception Team are trained Care Navigators. This means they can help you access the correct service. They will need to ask for a brief description of your problem. This does not mean they are being nosey or trying to stop you from seeing a Clinician, they are trying to help you to see the most appropriate person to deal with your problem.
For further information see link below:-
We currently have 4 GPs Dr Neetika Aggarwal, Dr Gareth Cox, Dr Sharmila Armitage and Dr Joel Coppeard together with our Advanced Nurse Practitioner Barbara Slack who are supported by our Practice Nurses, Clinical Pharmacist, GP Assistant and Health Care Assistants.
How does our Appointment system work?
We have a mix of face to face appointments and telephone appointments. Our reception team need to offer you the most appropriate appointment to deal with your problem. You may not always need a face to face appointment with a GP/Nurse at the surgery, you may be offered a telephone consultation, extended access appointment or directed to pharmacy or a local walk-in centre. A receptionist will need to ask you for details of the problem you are calling with, this is to enable use to direct you to the most appropriate clinician.
We now also offer Anima. You can get help help or advice, request your sick note from our Practice online with Anima. This is available Monday- Friday.
For minor symptoms less than 3 days old, we would encourage you to consult your local pharmacy or see our self care section on our website.
Please be considerate to other patients and remember 1 APPOINTMENT IS FOR 1 PROBLEM AND 1 PATIENT. Asking the GP to deal with multiple problems or see additional family members, in one 10 minute appointment can cause the GP to run late which has an impact on other patients.
Should you turn up 10 minutes or more late for your appointment you may not be seen, and your appointment may have to be rescheduled.
Further information is available at the surgery.
If you struggle to see/speak to a Clinician during normal working hours, please ask our reception team about EXTENDED ACCESS APPOINTMENTS. These are available both evening and weekends with a range of clinicians at different locations across Warrington
