HOSPITAL WAITING TIMES
All local hospitals, particularly Accident and Emergency Departments (A&E) are extremely stretched at this time of year.
All patients are urged to consider whether they need to go to A&E or whether there is a better alternative.
These alternatives include:
- Your GP
- Minor Injuries Units (for fractures, stings or bites)
- NHS 111 - They will give good initial medical advice
- Your local pharmacy - Their Minor ailments scheme can advise on a range of treatments for conditions such as UTI, Conjunctivitis and Nappy rash (to name a few)
However should you suffer a medical emergency such as chest pains or a head injury then please see the following link for current waiting times
Dr Philip Dommett
Dr Phil Dommett left Trescobeas Surgery at the beginning of January 2017. Dr Dommett has had 27 fantastic years and is both excited and saddened to be leaving such a wonderful surgery.
Dr Dommett has many other clinical commitments, including being Chair of Kernow Health CIC. He will continue to be heavily involved in the future planning for Health and Social Care in Cornwall and will be working to ensure the best deal for patients and carers in the coming years.
Dr Dommett has made an enormous contribution towards making Trescobeas the successful and vibrant surgery that it is and the other Partners and staff are sad to see him leave but wish him every success in his new roles.
But Good News:
Drs Jonathan Davies and Jim Kahane have now joined us. Both recently completed their Registrar placement here and have decided to re-join us on a permenant basis. Both are passionate about Trescobeas and the service we provide and we are all delighted they have decided to join us.
Trescobeas Surgery offers its patients the opportunity to have a pre-booked telephone call back with a Doctor outside of surgery opening hours. These appointments are for those patients who can not receive a call back during normal opening hours. From Monday to Thursday appointments are available from 1830-1930. To book call reception.
