On Call (Duty Doctor)


 These are an important part of general practice care.


 There is always an ‘on-call’ doctor, every day to deal with all of the non routine tasks that the day may bring. The on call doctor is also known as the duty doctor.


 Task list -







 On-Call starts from 0800 and finishes at 1800.


 Please ensure you are aware of which GP partner is supervising your on call and have their phone number in case of difficulty.


 You should ensure that reception has your mobile phone number.


 You should remain contactable at all times and will need to let the reception staff and your supervising doctor know if you are leaving the practice premises.  You will then need to be contactable via mobile phone.



Please check your signal on your mobile if going anywhere where a mobile signal is likely to be less than idea


 DON’T PANIC


o General Practice is ‘team work’

o If you don’t know what to do, ASK
