We operate an appointment system for all surgeries; some of our doctors' appointments are available to book up to 4 weeks in advance. Nurses and Health Care Assistant appointments can be booked further in advance if required.
We release approximately 15% of doctors appointments for advance booking at the beginning of each month; a further 15% of appointments are released on a Monday morning for the following week. The remainder of the appointments are released each morning and can be booked for the same day; we always ensure that anyone needing to see a doctor urgently will be seen, or assessed by telephone the same day.
An appointment can be made by telephoning the surgery, coming to the reception desk or booking on line.
Please note that all appointments are for one person only. Some of the appointments are to discuss one problem only to help the doctor from running late when patients need to discuss more than one medical issue.
You are free to choose which doctor you see; just ask when making the appointment. However, if a doctor has started treating you it is better to continue seeing that doctor until your treatment has finished.
You may phone the surgery during working hours and ask to speak to a doctor or a nurse. You may be asked to ring back later as the doctors and nurses cannot take telephone calls when they are seeing a patient. Receptionists may be able to deal with some queries or advise on the best time to speak to a doctor. Alternatively, you may send a request for a telephone call via our home page on this website.
