Appointments for the Doctor

We offer routine appointments with the Doctor, Nurse, Health Care Assistant and Phlebotomist, which can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance. We also offer telephone consultations with the Doctor and Nurse.

Did you know you can book your appointment online?

Using Online Services makes it more convenient for people at our Practice, as there's no need to make a phone call or visit us. Computer, smartphone or tablet users can make or cancel an appointment at a time that suits them, even when the Practice is closed.

If you are not already registered for GP Online Services, please visit the Patient Access page.

What if I can't get an appointment and my problem is urgent?

The Receptionist will take your contact number and ask you for a brief description of the problem, the Doctor will then call you back and discuss the treatment options with you.

111 is also available 24 hours a day for advice on all medical ailments.

Cancellations

We have a high number of patients who fail to turn up for their appointment. If you are unable to attend, please inform reception as soon as possible, we can then offer the appointment to another patient.

Help Doctor to Help You

Please be aware that appointment slots are 10 minutes -- so

  • 1 appointment per problem
  • 1 person per appointment

Home Visits

Patients are requested to telephone the surgery before 10:30am if a home visit is required that day.  Please do not ask the doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to come to the surgery as several patients can be seen at the surgery in the same time that it takes to do a home visit.

Appointments for the Nurse

We operate a booked appointment system for all Clinics. When booking your appointment please let Reception know what your appointment is for so that they can advise you when would be the best time for you to come and the length of appointment you require.

Our Practice Nurse provides a wide range of services including:

  • Immunisations
  • Dressings
  • Health Checks
  • Cervical Smears
  • Ear Syringing

Please either telephone the surgery to make an appointment or come in to the reception desk.

Emergencies

During Surgery hours an emergency is a medical problem that needs attention within 30 minutes.  After hours it is a medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery opens.

Evening / Night / Weekend / Bank Holiday calls

After 6:30pm on weekdays, throughout the weekend and on bank holidays; or if you have an urgent medical problem that cannot wait until we re-open, then call 111. This service will offer telephone advice, a consultation based at the hospital, or if necessary they will arrange for a doctor to visit.
