We offer a range of appointments to try and suit all of our patients and their requirements.
These appointments can usually be booked up to 3 weeks in advance for both the nurse or the doctor. If you require an appointment with a certain member of staff, you will often wait a longer length of time than if you saw any one.
48 Hour Appointments
These appointments are for patients who feel they need to be seen before the next routine appointment but don’t require treatment that day.
From the start of April 2013 we will be trialling a third more 48 hour appointments. Once we have completed this we hope to get patients opinions on how well it worked.
On the Day Appointments
If you feel you require an urgent appointment, you may be asked for more details from our receptionists to help them access your needs. Our nurse practitioner has on the day appointments available for most minor ailments which she can prescribe for.
If you require the attention of a doctor then our receptionists would triage the details to our on call doctor so they could access and deal with accordingly. This could be one of the following: prescription, telephone advice, an appointment or a home visit. All on the day appointments are with the doctors available and not necessarily the doctor of your choice.
If you cannot attend your appointment please cancel it as soon as possible so it can be made available to someone else. Appointments can be cancelled by both the phone or on the practice website. To cancel over the phone dial the normal surgery number and choice option 2 where you can leave a message with your details and appointment time.
