Monday and Friday mornings are our busiest times with most telephone traffic particularly from 8.30 – 9.30 am. Please avoid calling the surgery at 8.30 am for a same day appointment , there is no need to rush – daily triage is open 8.30 – 1 pm . Since November 2023 we have introduced the call queueing feature to help patients calling into their usual branch We strongly recommend you avoid early morning calls if you can. All routine matters eg prescriptions, enquiries are dealt with after 10 am .
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 MEDICAL PROTOCOL v2 (click on the link to view the Protocol) then please click to view the Transport medicals patient 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 note we continue to operate “telephone first” approach, hence your request for a new routine appointment will be a telephone call in the first instance. This does not mean we are not seeing patients face to face, but does allow our health care professionals to assess prior to inviting patients in. Some patients preferred this approach as it is more flexible and saves time.
It is vital we have your preferred contact number on your record as this will be the number that we call you on. If you have been told a clinician will call you, it is our policy to call your preferred number and we will make x 2 attempts. If the call is not successful then another appointment will need to be arranged.
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.
