Appointment System

A full appointment system operates. Appointments are available to be booked on the day. However, some can be booked up to two weeks in advance. You may consult any of the doctors, but it is suggested that you see the same doctor wherever possible for a continuing problem. If you wish to see a specific doctor you will be offered the first available appointment with that doctor.

If you wish to see a doctor urgently, please telephone the surgery early in the morning for an appointment with the daily duty doctor or a nurse who specialises in minor illnesses.

The practice is actively involved in the education of future general practitioners; you may therefore be offered an appointment with a fully qualified doctor who is gaining experience in general practice, under the guidance of one of the partners.

The practice has an automated telephone booking service enabling you to book a routine appointment with a doctor at any time of the day or night 365 days of the year without speaking to a receptionist. Simply press option 1 after you hear the welcome message and follow the instructions. The same process can be used if you wish to cancel any appointment or change your doctor's appointment.

 

Telephone Advice

During surgery the doctor has set aside time to deal with enquiries over the telephone. We will ask you to leave your contact number and enquiry in order for the doctor to call you back during the surgery hours. You may be asked to speak to a Primary Care Practitioner first for an initial assessment.
