Extended Hours

This surgery offers appointments to see a GP or Nurse in the evening or at the weekends via the Extended Hours Hub.

 

Patient's can request a routine appointment via Reception and request to be seen in one of the Extended Hours Hubs across Coventry and Rugby. 

 

Appointments are available Monday to Friday between 6.30pm and 9.30pm, and on Saturday and Sunday mornings. 

Home Visits

If you are too ill to come to the surgery, or are house-bound, please phone the surgery before 10.30am to request a home-visit.  

 

You may be asked for some details so that we can determine the urgency of the visit.

 

Before the Doctor visits, please ensure that your home is easily identifiable from the road and is safe (e.g. dogs shut away; dogs often misinterpret examinations on their owner as an attack and therefore must be shut away in another room). If the Doctor does not deem it safe, the visit will be cancelled until such a time that it is safe. 

Family Planning Advice

Family planning advice is offered to appropriate patients within normal surgery appointments and includes all types of contraceptive advice. 

 

Please visit Sexual Health Warwickshire online or phone 0300 123 6644 (option 2) for the latest information on sexual health clinic appointments available outside of the surgery. 

 

Testing kits are available online by visiting the Sexual Health Warwickshire page. 

 

Information about Community Family Planning Clinics can also be found on the Sexual Health Warwickshire website. 

 

Minor Surgery

The Doctor may advise removal of moles, warts, toenails, etc. This can be done within the surgery in our treatment room. During this appointment, a Doctor and Nurse or Healthcare Assistant will be present. 

ECGs

The Doctor may request an ECG be carried out following your consultation. This can be done in the surgery and is usually carried out by a member of the Nursing team. The Doctor will review the ECG and determine the best course of action.  

Health Checks

You may make an appointment with one of the Nurse or the Healthcare Assistant to have a health check.

 

Invitations are sent out regularly by the Health Authority for you to see a Nurse for your cervical smear or for a general health check.

 

We encourage all patients to accept these invitations, to take an interest in looking after themselves and to keep healthy. 

Smoking Cessation 

Appointments are available for support and advice to patients who wish to stop smoking. 

Private Services

We also provide a range of private medical services including:
 

  • Travel advice and immunisations for foreign travel.
  • HGV Medicals.
  • Insurance Medicals.

Primary Care Network (PCN)

Bennfield Surgery is 1 of 12 surgeries within the same Primary Care Network. The PCN consists of GP practices working together, along with other healthcare staff and organisations, providing integreated services to the local population. 

 

Each PCN is given a sum of money and it is up to the PCN to determine how best to spend that money, depending on the needs of the area. 

 

Our PCN has employed a variety of PCN staff to ease the pressures from GPs and to bridge the gap between GP and Hospital referrals. 

 

Some of the staff already employed are:

 

  • Pharmacist
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Physiotherapist
  • Chiropodist
  • Dietitian

 

Some of the services offered above are directly bookable by our Reception staff and you may be offered an appointment with one of the PCN staff rather than a GP when phoning for an appointment.
