All surgeries are held by appointment which can be made by telephoning the surgery.
Making and Cancelling Appointments
We would like patients to be seen by the doctor with whom they are registered if at all possible. This is to ensure that the GP with whom you consult is familiar with your medical history. If your doctor is absent, you may consult with any of the other doctors in the practice.
If you would prefer to see a particular GP we will try to accommodate your wishes within the medical resources available at any given time.
If you would like to be able to book GP appointments on-line, please ask at reception.
One Appointment One Problem
Appointments are only 10 minutes long, and in order to investigate your problem fully, we ask that you prioritise your medical conditions and present your most important symptoms.
Every effort is made to see patients with urgent problems on the same day, and spaces are reserved each day for this purpose. Please note however that if you are being seen on this basis, you may need to wait to be seen between patients who have booked appointments.
Appointments are always bookable more than 2 days in advance.
If you cannot keep an appointment, please contact the surgery as soon as possible in order that we may offer the appointment to another patient.
We are especially busy before and after public holidays. To help us, please ensure you order any medication in advance of such periods.
TEXT MESSAGING FACILITY
We now offer a free text messaging facility where a text message will automatically be sent to your mobile phone 24 hours in advance of your appointment, as a reminder to you.
If you would like to receive these text messages, please contact the surgery.
