Winter Illnesses

We are receiving a lot of calls asking for appointments to talk about some common winter illnesses such a coughs and colds. Help us to help you by visiting the NHS website before you call to check your symptoms first. It's full of really useful information and advice about how to stay well and when to see a doctor. Remember, too, that pharmacists can offer advice and recommend over the counter treatments to help manage your illness.

Contacting Acorn Health Partnership

Whilst we have three addresses and still retain all three previous Practice phone numbers, it makes it easier for us and quicker for you if any post and paperwork could be sent to our Gillies site (address above). If you send or bring something into a different site, it will make its way to Gillies securely, but there will be a delay. Our administration team are based at Gillies, as is our prescription team. Our reception team are predominantly based at our Essex House site. Eventually we will cease the old 'Camrose' and 'Hackwood' telephone numbers and will only be advertising the 'Gillies' (and now Acorn) telephone number (above) from now on. At present, the 'Camrose' and 'Hackwood' numbers divert to the Acorn phone number.

Three Points of ID

When communicating with us via any method, including email, a form on this website, a letter or a telephone call, please note that we will ask you for three points of identification; most commonly we will ask for your name, date of birth and first line of your address. We will not be able to disclose any confidential information to you without first verifying these details. Please ensure that you provide us with this information when writing to us, failure to include this information will result in a delay to us providing you with the requested information until we can verify your details.

Improved Access

Acorn Health Partnership are pleased to be able to offer 'improved access' appointments from 6.30-8pm each weekday evening and on Saturday mornings from 8-11am. All of these appointments are pre-bookable and can be booked both online via patient access or by phoning the Practice. All of these appointments are offered from our St Andrews Centre site (see 'contact' button for full address). We are also able to offer some Sunday and Bank Holiday GP appointments at the local Hospital; these appointments are only available by telephoning the Practice. Please note that our telephone lines are only open until 6.30pm on weekdays and are not open at weekends.


We are in contact with our phone system provider again as we recognise that the occasional call is getting stuck in the loop. If you are in the call queue for 30 minutes or longer we would really appreciate it if you could email us at [email protected] with details of the telephone number that you called from and the time of your call. The more evidence that we can provide our phone system provider about the technical issues, the quicker we can look to get it resolved. We completely appreciate that waiting a long time for your call to be answered can be very frustrating, but we ask that patients do not take their frustration out on our hard-working staff as they are doing their very best to deal with the huge volume of calls they receive every day. We recognise that we are short staffed in our reception team and are actively recruiting.
