All surgeries are by appointment only and can be booked as far in advance as is available on the system.
Normal routine appointments are 10 minutes long, if you think your appointment may take longer than 10 minutes please book a double appointment.
Urgent 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
Urgent appointments are not for repeat prescriptions, fitness for work certificates or for signing forms.
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.
All doctors are available (normally between 11:00 – 12:30) to give telephone advice after their morning surgery. Patients are advised to telephone before 11:00 to arrange this.
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.
