Advanced Access Appointments System
We have introduced a new appointments system to enable us to offer everyone an appointments within 48 hours. Most of these appointments will be available the same day.
You can pre book an early morning or early afternoon appointment up to one month in advance. It is one appointment per patient.
For review appointment the patient is given a slip by the doctor and the patient can pre book any review appointment.
To ensure fair access to all our patients same day appointments may not be booked until 8.00am, either in person or by telephone.
Thank you for your co operation
Please avoid ringing for an appointment at busy times
i.e. 8.00am - 9.00am and 2.00pm - 3.00pm.
We will endeavour to give you an appointment with the doctor of your choice but if that doctors appointments are already full you will be offered an appointment with another doctor.
The practice offers telephone consultations for conditions which may not require examination. These consultations are similar to face to face consultation but over the telephone with an appointment time and are prebookable up to a month in advance. Please book the normal way.
URGENT medical problems will be dealt with without delay. These appointments will be with whichever doctor is available. Please inform the receptionist of the urgency of the problem and she will communicate this to the doctor.
