We have a longstanding active Patient Participiation Group at Priorslegh.  It is a great opportunity to learn more about what it is going on in our surgery and in the local healthcare system in general.  


We are always eager to add new members to the group, especially from different age groups. If you feel you would be interested in joining the group and supporting the practice please contact us via the practice or our PPG chair Mr Ed Blundell at This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you can't attend meetings but would be prepared to be a virtual member and comment on issues via e mail we would also be pleased to hear from you.

Telephone Triage

Telephone Triage - How does it work and what is it for?

Priorslegh Medical Centre has operated a telephone triage service for some time, for those not familiar with a triage system here is how it works:

  • If you have an emergency and need to speak to a clinician urgently please phone the surgery in the morning or after 130pm for an afternoon call back
  • Triage is for emergency queries only, that does not include medication request or sick note requests
  • You have to be available to come down to the surgery within 2-3 hours if needed. If you are going to work then it is not an emergency for telephone triage.
  • Your call will be triaged along with nearly 100 other calls in a morning and the same number of calls in the afternoon; this means we cannot give you a time you will be called back.
  • Triage does not always mean you have to come to the surgery, if a clinician feels they are happy discussing your condition with you over the phone they can do a prescription for you if needed and it can be ready to collect the same morning.
