Making Appointments

Changes to appointments

We are experimenting with the number of Routine and Urgent appointments we offer. We have reduced the number of ‘Routine’ appointments available and increased the number of ‘Urgent’ appointments which you are able to book 48hours in advance as feedback from our patients suggests this is what they want.

The practice is now offering a number of ‘On the Day Telephone Consultation’ appointments. Please ask the receptionist when you call if you think this type of appointment would be suitable for you.

Making Appointments

You can expect under normal circumstances, and providing you telephone the surgery in the morning, to be offered an appointment if necessary on the same day.

We do, however, ask you to book appointments for routine and follow-up conditions in advance. This will allow you more opportunity to see the doctor of your choice.

Appointments can be made by telephoning your normal surgery of attendance, or by booking them online.

Routine and Advanced Appointment Booking

These are for patients that wish to book in advance.

Routine Appointments are for booked for 10 minutes and can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.

If you have a more complex problem or several problems to discuss, please book a double appointment with reception to allow the doctor extra time with you.
