Making an appointment
If you want to make an appointment with a doctor of nurse, please phone the main surgery number and speak to a receptionist. If we cannot offer you an appointment in the timescale you feel you need please be willing to share some information with our receptionist about the nature of your problem. The GP will then advise the staff about who can help, when and how. For example - we operate a waiting list system to slot patients in as and when we receive cancellations.
For an urgent appointment on the same day, please ring as early as possible. You can make an appointment with a nurse without seeing a doctor first.
The cost to NHS of wasted appointments
Missed appointments cost the NHS thousands of pounds every year! Please phone the surgery as soon as possible if you cannot attend. This will help us to make appointments available to as many patients as possible.
If you would like an interpreter to attend your consultation, please tell reception when you book your appointment.
Sometimes you may want to speak to a doctor or nurse about something but do not need to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment.
If you would like to talk to someone over the phone, you can contact reception, who will take your number and arrange a suitable time. We hold telephone surgeries every day.
