Urgent appointments are offered on the same day for severe pain/illness/possible malignancy.
Appointments can be made by phoning the appointments line, booking online (you will need a log-in for this) or in person at the reception desk during office hours. You can pre-book appointments up to six weeks in advance.
You can now also use our new service Doctorlink where you can check your symptoms online with the symptoms checker. The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem. The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care. If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at the Surgery you will need to click on the request appointment link. Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the practice team, to arrange an appointment within the identified time frame (the appointment time frame will show in the outcome of your symptom checker).
Longer appointments are available if you have more than one problem. They are recommended for antenatal, postnatal or cervical smear appointments - please let the receptionist know. The receptionist does not need to know the problem, but it may be helpful if you feel able to tell them.
If you are unable to come to your appointment, please phone to cancel. We can then offer the appointment to someone else.
We also offer some late appointments 1 day a week and some Saturday morning clinics as part of the improving patient access initiative. This is aimed at those who work away from the Surgery and cannot make routine appointments during the day. These are pre-bookable appointments only.
