Appointments

We run all our surgeries by an appointment only system. If you require an urgent appointment, you will probably be asked for your contact number, and a doctor or nurse will call you back and book you into an appropriate slot.

We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.

If you are too ill to come to the surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the surgery before 11am. Home visits take up much more of a doctor’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen. You may be telephoned back by a doctor before a visit is made to ascertain the visit is necessary – home visits are always done at the clinical discretion of the doctor.

OUR APPOINTMENTS ARE 10 MINUTES LONG, WHICH IS USUALLY JUST ENOUGH TIME TO DEAL WITH ONE PROBLEM.  WHEN BOOKING, PLEASE BEAR THIS IN MIND AND MAKE SEPARATE APPOINTMENTS IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE THING YOU NEED TO DISCUSS.
