We operate a booking system that includes pre-bookable appointments as well as appointments that can be booked on the day. We are monitoring our available appointments to ensure that supply and demand for appointments on any specific day, where possible, are matched. Although we may not always be able to book patients with their chosen practitioner for urgent appointments, we will aim to provide access to a health professional on the same day whenever possible.
Please try and help reception staff to direct you to the most appropriate health professional, as a wide range of minor illnesses; blood pressure, asthma and diabetes monitoring, pill checks, advice on smoking cessation, diet, exercise, cholesterol, and travel advice are now mainly dealt with by either our nurse practitioner, practice nurses or health care assistants. Seeing those members of our team, whenever it is appropriate, helps us to further improve access to our GPs especially where an appointment with a particular GP is needed on short notice.
All appointments made are for one person ONLY. Please ensure you request separate appointments for additional members of your family.
The time allocated for a normal appointment with your GP is 10 minutes. Please book a double appointment if you would like to discuss complex or multiple problems.
Please inform our reception staff if your appointment is to discuss test results.
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.
