Appointments can be made by speaking to the receptionists or online. Routine appointments are 10 minutes;
Emergency appointments - these are available for urgent problems and can be arranged for the same day. You may not be able to see your usual doctor and the appointment may be shorter than a routine appointment.
Patients are reminded that only one problem should be discussed in your appointment.
Appointments are made by either telephoning the surgery and speaking to a receptionist or via our online access booking appointment service
If you feel you will be unable to attend an appointment please telephone and cancel so it may be given to another patient - thank you.
A selection of appointments can be pre-booked up to 4 weeks in advance. Some appointments can be booked 2 days in advance. The remainder are booked on the day. Demand is carefully monitored - please use the appointments system responsibly.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE PATIENTS WHO ATTENDED OR CANCELLED THEIR APPOINTMENTS
IN OUR EFFORTS TO CUT DOWN ON OUR DNA RATE, THE PRACTICE MANAGER NOW WRITES A WARNING LETTER TO EACH PATIENT WHO DOES NOT ATTEND FOR THEIR APPOINTMENTS.
SIGN UP TO OUR FREE TEXT REMINDER SERVICE TO AVOID BEING REMOVED FROM THE PRACTICE FOR NOT EITHER CANCELLING OR KEEPING YOUR APPOINTMENT.
To enable you to use the repeat prescriptions and booking advance appointments you must first go into the surgery to register for use of this facility. You will be given a “login” and “password”. The facility will then be available to you. N.B. It is not possible to book on-line appointments for the Practice Nurses as some appointments need to be longer than others, therefore you will need to contact a Receptionist.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
The practice offers a telephone consultation service. If you would prefer to speak to a GP rather than attending the surgery please ask the receptionist for a telephone consultation. Telephone consultations are held daily,during morning and afternoon surgery.The receptionist will take your details and ask a GP to telephone you.
Telephone consultations are not appropriate for nurse appointments. If you wish to speak to a nurse please inform reception who will ensure all the relevant details are passed to the nurse who will phone you back.
