Changes to the Appointment System
In response to the recent Patient Survey we have made some changes to the availability of appointments with Doctors.
From 3rd May, 2017 GP appointments will be released at 8am for the same day, 8am for 3 day advance appointments and 8am for 3 week advance appointments.
To make an appointment telephone your usual surgery or visit the reception desk during opening hours. We operate a computerised appointments system and appointments can be made at either surgery for both sites. Pre-bookable GP appointments are usually available up to three weeks in advance. You may request a doctor of your choice but this will depend on availability. The GPs have requested that receptionists are to ask you to briefly describe your symptoms in order you see the right clinician.
If you have registered for our on-line service you may book your appointment via that medium also by clicking the link below.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation. Please request this at the time of booking or speak to your doctor.
Telephone advice is also available with a GP or practice nurse if you do not need to see them face-to-face. The receptionist will advise you when this will be convenient or will ask them to call you back.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please inform the practice as soon as possible. Missed appointments are a waste of a health professional's time. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment you may be asked to rebook.
