The STAR Service has a Web Booking System for Patients. This will allow patients to directly book appointments into the STAR Extended Hours Service.

Springwood Surgery will soon be offering patients a new service called "Care Navigator".
Care Navigation offers patients the choice to access the most appropriate service first. Care Navigators will be trained to confidentially sign post the patient and offer the patient the choice to go straight to the service which best meets their health and well-being needs.
Care Navigation training is designed to provide GP reception and health care professionals with the knowledge and skills to inform and signpost patients to appropriate local health and well-being services in a safe and effective way.
The MJog Messenger app allows you to get automated reminder messages, including appointments, which give you a quick and easy way to cancel an appointment you no longer need. This helps to avoid wasting GP time, and helps the NHS to save money including the cost of SMS messages sent by your Practice.

If you anticipate that you may require an examination by the Doctor and feel that you would like a chaperone to be present, please make reception aware at the time of booking your appointment so that this can be arranged. Alternatively bring along a member of your family or friend to your appointment.
If you are unable to attend for your appointment we expect at least 24 hours notice, except in extreme cases, so that we are able to offer another patient the use of that appointment.
We have a STRICT policy for patients who regularly miss their appointments which may ultimately result in the removal of them/their family from the practice list.
If you cannot keep your appointment with the Doctor or Nurse, please let Reception know in good time:
