Appointments

Appointments may be made by telephoning or by visiting the practice during core surgery hours (08:00-18:30 Monday to Friday). 

 

Booking an appointment with the Doctor

When requesting an appointment you will be asked whether your need is an emergency. If so, you will almost certainly be looked after by the Duty Doctor. 

If your need is not urgent, you will be cared for by your usual Doctor. If you don’t know who your usual Doctor is, the reception team will be happy to advise you.

 

Emergency Appointments

When requesting treatment for an emergency (i.e. you would like to be dealt with on the same day) you will be asked to provide a brief overview of what is wrong with you to the receptionist.  She will pass this information to the Duty Doctor who will then be able to prioritise your care. 

In the first instance, the Duty Doctor will telephone you and together you will agree the best course of action.

 

Routine, non-urgent appointments (bookable in advance)

When requesting a routine, non-urgent appointment the receptionist will   endeavour to accommodate your preference for timescale and timing.  If it is not possible to find an appointment that is suitable for you, she will ask your usual Doctor to telephone you.  All the Doctors have access to  appointments that are not available for the administrative team to  release.  If your usual Doctor needs to see you, s/he will make an appointment available for you.  The receptionist will, of course, discuss this with you at the time of booking. 

In summary, please don’t forget that there is no need to call in day after day asking for an appointment; leave a message for the Doctor and s/he will telephone you.  

 

Home Visits

Home visits are shared by all available GPs.

 

Have your Say

Please do make a note of who you are speaking to when you ring or visit the practice and if you have any comments please contact the Assistant Practice Manager, Gill Hulf.
