Dr Dayah is no longer seeing patients at Barrow Health Centre. Dr Simpson and Partners will continue to provide a service of general practice as normal. Appropriate arrangements have been put in place to ensure continuity of care and adequate appointment availability.
We are sorry to say goodbye to our practice Manager Nicola Allison and would like to wish her well in her further career. Julia Kinch will be acting Practice Manager until a new Practice Manager is appointed.
RED EYE. Should you be experiencing difficulties with extreme sore red eyes, floaters etc we now have a joint facility with local ophthalmologists who will take referrals from our surgery to ease eye casualty waiting times for any of these issues. Please book an appointment with a nurse who will assess and refer where appropriate should you be experiencing any of these difficulties.
AS YOU ARE AWARE WE HAVE ONGOING ISSUES WITH OUR TELELPHONE SYSTEM
WE ARE CURRENTLY TRIALING A NEW IMPROVED SYSTEM
Now when you call the surgery on 01509 274430 you may hear an engaged tone this will be because all our lines are busy and so will save you having to wait in a long call queue.
IF YOU GET THE ENGAGED TONE PLEASE RE - DIAL AGAIN.
We will review this system in a months’ time.
We will keep you informed of any further changes.
