Appointments

To make an appointment, please visit the Consulting Room.

If you have an account, you can book an appointment through Patient Access.

For the Doctor

  • Please attend or telephone the surgery anytime during opening hours to make an appointment to see the doctor, nurse or healthcare assistant. If you require an appointment for a problem that you feel cannot wait, you will be given a time to attend. This will usually be at the end of morning or afternoon surgery (this may not be with the doctor of your choice and you may have a slightly longer wait than usual).
  • Please arrive promptly for your appointment.
  • Please remember to cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend. We can then offer that appointment to another patient.

Appointments are usually for ten minutes unless it is for minor surgery or a medical examination, which take longer. Please inform the receptionist if this is the case.

Routine appointments can be made up to one month in advance. This enables us to offer an appointment at a time more suitable for those patients that require them.

Appointments are available daily for those patients who feel that they have an urgent medical problem and wish to see a doctor on the same day. In these cases patients are asked to contact the surgery before 09:00 if possible. For urgent medical problems a doctor will always have a consultation with you. This may be on the phone on the same day, however, we are unable to guarantee the doctor of your choice.

The doctors schedule can be viewed here: Doctors Schedule.

Telephone Advice

If you wish to speak to a doctor on the telephone, ask the receptionist who will take the relevant details and arrange a telephone appointment. If it is not urgent the appointment may not be for the same day.

For the Nurse

We operate a booked appointment system for all clinics. When booking your appointment it would be helpful if you could please let reception know what your appointment is for in order to advise on the best time for you to come and the length of appointment you require.

The nurse is available to provide many health checks, including well person reviews and over 75 health checks if you so require.

Nurse Consulting Times

Monday – Friday 08:30 – 18:00, (There is no nurse or HCA on a Friday afternoon).

Text Messaging Service

We use the text messaging service to remind you of any appointments you have booked with the surgery. Please can you ensure we have your correct mobile number in order for you to receive a text message reminder. If you need to update the contact information we hold for you, please complete the Change Personal Details form.
If you would like to opt out of this service please inform reception.
