The Town surgery is conveniently located for anyone who works or lives in St Peter Port. We have tried to make appointments available at times suitable for those of you who work in town. We have GP appointments available from 8am on Monday and Wednesday Mornings (8.30am rest of the week), a daily lunchtime surgery as well as opening until 7pm on a Thursday including Physiotherapy appointments. We also have nurse, physiotherapy, osteopathy and travel clinics available.
In addition to working as general practitioners, we continue to have responsibilities within the hospital and try to maintain contact with our patients in the ward and casualty whenever this is possible. We aim to provide the highest standards of care by both doctors and staff. The doctors are trained and experienced in family medicine and enjoy seeing the range of problems that family medical practice provides. In addition, each has a special interest, as can be found on the doctors page.
We subscribe to the World Health Organisation’s definition of health; that is, “not merely an absence if disease, but a sense of physical, psychological and social well-being”. We believe in preventative medicine and the use of complementary medicines where appropriate.
Our practice nurses and other health professionals assist with preventative medicine and clinics involving a wide range of specialist nurse skills. There are established links to allied medical services provided by community nurses, health visitors, psychiatric social workers, dieticians and various self-help groups. As a practice, we keep up with the theoretical and practical advances in medicine and, to this end, the doctors, practice nurses and physiotherapists regularly attend courses, usually within the UK.
Since 1994, the practice has been fully computerised. This has improved our ability to recall patients for special services such as cervical screening. It has also made prescribing easier (and more legible!) and with experience we believe it will contribute further to the smooth running of the practice.
