All GP appointmenst consist of a 10 minute consultation. It is advised to book a double appointment when wishing to discuss multiple/ complex. This is in place to ensure the safety of our patients and avoid delays in the clinics.
Emergency Appointments Monday to Friday
If you require an emergency appointment, please phone the practice between 8:30 - 9:30 to arrange an appointment on the day with available on-call doctors. Please be aware that if you are calling for an emergency appointment, the doctors have asked the receptionists to get some detail regarding the reason for your call. This will ensure you are dealt with in the most appropriate way and enable us to prioritise patients who have the greatest need.
Appointments - normally available at 08:30 Monday to Fridays (when phone line opens)
Our practice is committed to offering you an appointment within 48 hours with a doctor if you have a problem. You may request to see any of the doctors or nurses within our team, but we do encourage you to take any GP appointment that is available in an emergency.
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.
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. Repeated failure to attend booked appointments will result in removal of your name from our lists.
**The practice is pleased to announce Extended Hour Appointments (7:15 - 8:00am) will be available to our patients as of the 1st July 2019. For further information, please contact the main reception on 01706 397666.**
