Appointments

The practice operates a same day appointment system, although a number of appointments are available for pre-booking.

Appointments to see the doctor can be booked by telephoning on the day from 8am.

All consultations are 10 minutes in duration, and if you have more than one medical problem and feel you may need a longer consultation , please inform the Receptionist at the time you book your appointment.

Making an Appointment

When you contact either of the surgeries to make an appointment, the receptionist may ask for brief details of the reason you wish to see the doctor. There are occasions when a health problem is best managed by another member of the team, for example, the Practice Nurse for vaccinations or travel advice. The information that you give to the Receptionist helps us to make the most appropriate appointment for you and can help us keep waiting times down. The information you give is treated in the strictest confidence.

Some appointments can be booked in advance, but as demand for appointments is high some appointments are reserved and are not released until later in the day to ensure those with urgent health problems can be seen without unnecessary delay. Any information you give can help us give earlier appointments to those who need it most.
