We listened to your frustrations...
As a result of patient feedback over the next couple of months we are having a new digital telephone system fitted at both Rosegarth & Siddal Surgery.
This fully integrated single system which will cover both sites and will enable us to handle calls more effectively staff between sites.
The Rosegarth system will be installed first and then Siddal will be connected a few weeks later.
Once they all are both amalgamated, then all calls for both will be taken from Rosegarth as this will be our call centre hub.
The way patients will queue in the system which be more effective, you will be able to press an extension for example for the secretary and leave a voicemail if she is note available. Patients/callers will also know what position they are in, whilst waiting within the queue.
It will take a few weeks to fully integrate so we appreciate your patience and understanding during this transition process period.

The Surgery Pod
The Surgery Pod, located in the Practice lobby, enables patients without clinical supervision, to perform their own checks such as blood pressure, weight, pulse, alcohol usage etc, which are then instantaneously updated into your patient records and can be immediately viewed by the doctors and nurses.
The Surgery Pod allows you to perform these simple checks at your own convenience, without making an appointment during our opening hours of 0800 - 1830 hours and therefore allows you to spend more high-value time with the doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional when necessary.
You may no longer need to arrange appointments or attend at inconvenient times for simple checks these can now be done at your convenience. You may wish to do your BP before you go in to see the doctor or nurse or you can come in any time to use it.
