Appointments

Make an appointment by visiting the consulting room.

How to make an appointment

The doctors and nurses are available for consultation during their clinic hours, morning, afternoon and early evening. These vary from time to time. All surgery times are by appointment. If you think the matter will take longer than usual (e.g. insurance medical, coil fitting) please inform the receptionist.

We make a number of appointments available for booking up to two weeks in advance with named doctors. More appointments are made available on a daily basis. These are released at 08:00 on a first come first service basis. There may be a choice of doctor available.

We cannot always meet your preference for a named GP. We do aim to provide continuity of care across the surgery and the practice works as a team.

Nurse appointments can be booked ahead up to six weeks.

Urgent Appointments

If you feel you need to be seen on the day about a medical concern, we will make every effort to make sure you are seen. However, we will not be able to tell you which doctor or nurse practitioner you will see. We may first put you through to a doctor on the telephone to discuss your problem.

Telephone Advice

If you require advice, but do not feel that you need to see a doctor or nurse, you may phone to speak to a doctor or ask for a call back. If you would like to speak to a named doctor, your enquiry may not be dealt with on the same day.

Online Services

The Surgery now offers the facility to be able to book appointments online via DoctorLink. If you would like to be able to use this facility please complete the online registration form.

Interpreting Service

We are able to access interpreters for those patients whose first language is not English. We will need advance notice to arrange this – please ask reception for more information.
