Consultations and Appointments
We operate an appointment system. Please phone to make an appointment giving as much notice as possible if a specific doctor or time is required. You will be sent a text message to your nominated mobile phone number to reminid you. Please ensure we have the correct number on record.
When an urgent situation arises a patient will be seen as soon as can be arranged within the same working day by contacting the surgery.
If you would like to speak to the doctor by telephone please arrange a telephone consultation with the reception staff.
The precise details of the surgery rota are too complicated to summarise easily. The doctors normally have one half day off per week and during absences cover is normally provided by the remaining doctors.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.
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.
