- All our registered patients including parents and carers on behalf of patients are welcome.
- You can name a GP if you wish by typing this information in and we will do our best to accommodate you
- You may prefer a message, telephone or face to face response.

Registered patients of the Kingsway Surgery are able to add a request to this system between 8am and 10.30am, Monday to Friday.
All requests are triaged by a GP throughout the day and a clinical decision is made to assess urgency, which can take up to 72 hours. All calls made to and from the surgery are recorded for quality and safety purposes. Please be aware that depending on doctor capacity and the volume of calls being received, Ask my GP may close earlier than 10.30am on some days.
If you feel your problem is a medical emergency after Ask my GP closes, please ring the surgery on 01792 650716 to discuss this with a member of the admin team.
