As per advice received, we have temporarily stopped access to patients booking appointments online. It is essential that all patients who are invited to book an appointment are screened by reception to ensure we are able to identify people who may prove a risk; having travelled recently to the affected parts of the world. If you require an appointment please contact the surgery.
TELEPHONE THE SURGERY AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE ON THE DAY THAT YOU WISH TO BE SEEN
If you wish to make an appointment or request a home visit then you should call before 10am. Online appointments are available before 8.00am. Phone lines are manned from 8.00am and the earlier we receive a call the more chance of you gaining the appointment that you want with the doctor of your choice. The receptionist will ask you to explain, generally, what your health problem is so that they can help arrange an appointment with the appropriate clinician. It may be suggested that you see a nurse instead of a doctor. In these cases if a nurse feels that you also need to see a doctor then they have direct access to them.
We do have appointments available to pre-book (in advance) for patients who require this type of access. Please ask reception if you wish to organise a future Doctor appointment.
REQUESTING NON URGENT APPOINTMENTS VIA EMAIL
Patients can now contact the surgery via email to request NON-Urgent appointments at the surgery. A consent form with contact details must be completed first and can be downloaded from here.
Infrequent Doctors' Appointments
If it has been a large amount of time since your last appointment ( 3 years if under 75, 1 year if over), please let us know. The clinician may ask several extra questions to ensure we keep your records up to date.
