You can book an appointment by:
Our appointment times are 10 minutes. Please be aware this is long enough to deal with one problem properly or two simple problems. Please do not ask for repeat prescriptions at your appointment as there are other ways you can order your repeat medicines. We ask you to try and follow this guidance so that we can run our surgeries to time. One exception to this is Transport Medicals (click on the link to view the Protocol) then please click here to view the patient information leaflet which should be read before phoning and booking the appointment.
In response to our Patient Group meeting we are trying hard to reduce demand for "same day" appointments at 8.30 each morning which is extremely unpopular and very stressful. We have now introduced " Advanced Booking" with new appointments released on the rota every day up to 2 weeks in advance for all doctors & branches giving patients a bigger choice.
Please ask our reception staff what is available and if possible avoid contacting the surgery at 8.30am which is our busiest time unless you are in urgent need of a same day appointment.
Types of Appointments Available:
- On the day - You will be offered a GP call back within an hour. The GP may be able to deal with your problem over the phone, if not they will triage you to the most appropriate service, this may be a GP appointment that day, later in the week or an appointment with one of our other practitioners. This will involve our reception staff asking you for some information when you initially call. All staff employed by the practice are bound by the same level of patient confidentiality as Doctors and we would appreciate your co-operation as we introduce this service.
- Pre-Bookable - available to book up to 2 weeks in advance.
These are available everyday at the end of morning surgery and the beginning of evening surgery and are very useful for quick queries, reviews or questions about your medication.
When we are closed
Please continue to ring the surgery number if you need a GP or health advice and your call will be diverted to the Out Of Hours GP Service who will have all your records to hand.
