All surgeries are by appointment only and can be booked as far in advance as is available on the system.
Normal routine appointments are 15 minutes long, if you think your appointment may take longer than this please book a double appointment.
Please help our staff to get you to see the right person at the right time. This will mean our staff will ask you the reason for booking an appointment. They have been trained to do this and navigate you to the right person as quickly as possible.
We have an extensive practice team able to see patients, such as MSK specialist, Mental health workers, minor ailments, minor eye clinic, some appointments might be at another venue but the staff will inform you of this. Please do not be surprised if you are navigated to a different provider of care
Appointment slots can sometime be taken up by patients who have conditions that will get better on their own and are not serious. These can be managed by the pharmacist or by finding information on NHS Choices Website.
Same Day Appointments
Same day appointments are for one illness only.
We will never turn away someone who deems they need to see a doctor urgently. For urgent appointments you may have to explain a little of your problem to the reception team to allow them to assess the extent of the emergency the team
Same day appointments are not for repeat prescriptions, fitness for work certificates or for signing forms or for routine on-going problems
Sometime a doctor will request you make a telephone consultation appointment regarding test results. Please contact the surgery the morning you wish to speak to the doctor and leave you details with the reception team. We cannot be specific about the time the doctor will call you back so if there is a time that you are not available to take a call please inform the admin staff.
All doctors are available to give telephone advice please ask reception to book one of these.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation. Please request this at the time of booking or speak to your GP.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
