Appointments

calendar_penWe operate 10 minute appointment slots which can be made by contacting the surgery during our opening hours either by phone or in person. Appointments can also be booked online at any time.

You are free to see whichever doctor you wish but we do recommend that you try to see the same doctor for the follow up of any particular problem.

Telephone Access

If your enquiry is of a routine nature e.g. to check for test results then please try to ring after 10:00 when our phone lines are less busy.

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.

Appointments with the practice nurses are made in exactly the same way as for the doctors.

Hospital Referral

For NHS referrals your doctor will usually write to the consultant direct or book you via the E referrals system an appointment will be sent to you by the hospital.

For private referrals you will usually be told how to make the appointment yourself. The referral letter will be left in reception for you to collect and hand to the consultant.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. Even if a genuine problem prevents you from attending at the last minute please let us know, as we run a cancellation list and will always be able to fit someone else in.
