ABOUT OUR APPOINTMENT SYSTEM
Please try and remember that your appointment with the Doctor is for “one problem only”. If you feel you will need more than a 10 minute consultation please ask the receptionist to book you a longer appointment. This will not only assist the Doctors, but will also reduce patient waiting time and minimise surgeries running late.
The Practice operates a system for dealing with urgent medical problems e.g. those that cannot wait until the next routine available appointment with any of the Doctors at any site. These are short (5 minute) appointments for “acute” problems and if the Doctors consider that this is not the case, you may be asked to re-book on another day in a routine slot. If you have a non-urgent medical problem, it is not advisable to come to the surgery without first making an appointment, as the doctor will be unable to see you.
If required, you can book a telephone consultation with your Doctor at the end of morning surgery. You can also book doctors appointments on this website.
On some occasions you may find that the doctor on duty in the surgery or carrying out visits is not one of the doctors from the practice. This Doctor is called a locum Doctor and is standing in for one of the regular doctors who is away.
