Consultations are by appointment only and can be arranged at the reception desks or by telephone. Appointments are allocated at 10-minute intervals. If, however, you feel you need longer with the doctor, please ask the receptionist for a double appointment. This will prevent surgeries running late.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE ON TIME FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT; IF YOU ARE LATE YOU MAY NOT BE SEEN.
Patients are encouraged to see the doctor of their choice, but on occasions when this is not possible, another partner will be available for consultations. There may be a delay before you can obtain a routine appointment with the doctor of your choice. We operate an advanced access appointments system, which means that a lot of our appointments can be booked on the day, however there are a number of appointments which may be pre-booked.
Consulting your Doctor
You may consult any doctor you wish. Our aim is to give you an appointment within 48 hours with a member of the practice team; you may have to wait longer to see a specific person. If you require an urgent appointment, please make the reception staff aware of this. Emergencies are always seen on the same day. If you cannot attend your appointment please telephone and cancel. Telephones are normally manned between 8.15am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday. Consultation is by appointment at all surgeries. The normal consulting times are outlined below, but may change due to GP availability
