Our Appointment System

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Surgery and clinic attendance is by appointment only.

We have a personal list system and you will be offered an appointment with your usual doctor. If you need to be seen more quickly, the Care Navigator may offer you an appointment with another doctor.  However generally we would anticipate you wait to see your usual doctor. GP appointments are now available in your area during the evenings and at the weekend. Working within our current staffing capacity we are doing our best to ensure that you have access to additional appointments outside of our core hours.

As a result you may be offered an early morning or evening appointment. If this is something you would prefer please ask about availability when booking an appointment. To book an appointment, contact your practice. Appointments may be made in person, online or by telephone during surgery hours. Whilst we operate with a personalised list, every effort will be made if you need to see a male/female GP at any time.

 

How To Book Your Appointment

If you need medical advice outside our opening hours please ring NHS 111. They will direct you to the most appropriate service including out of hours doctors and nurses. Lines are open Monday-Friday, 8.30am – 6.30pm. The surgery is open: Monday – Thursday, 8.00am – 7pm and Friday – 8.00am – 6.30pm

  • Book Online: Register for our online booking service for an easy way to book appointments, order repeat medications, access your medical records and update your details. There are 2 ways of registering for online access. Through the NHS APP or via Patient Access
 

Extended Hours

The Practice offers extended hours appointments beyond our own already wide choice of appointment times. These additional appointments are available only to those patients who have difficulty accessing routine care with their own Doctor within the usual hours advertised. These will be available with your own usual Doctor on a weekly basis as well as additional nurse and HCA appointments.

 

Telephone Consultations

If you require advice or information, or wish to pass a message to your Doctor, please contact Patient Services. The Care Navigator may offer you a telephone consultation with your doctor or a nurse. This would be helpful if requested before 11.00am. You will need to give a reason for your telephone request so the GP’s can prioritise their list of telephone calls.  Please check with Patient Services that we have the correct telephone number for you.

Please note we will not be able to take medication requests on the phone. If you have any questions regarding your medications and your Community Pharmacist cannot answer the question the Derrick our Clinical Pharmacist will deal with your query.
