Appointments

Appointments - Same Day or Book in Advance

We have divided our appointments into two categories: 'Same Day' and 'Pre-bookable'.

Same day appointments are released at 8.00am each morning and enable you to telephone and see a doctor that day. We will endeavour to make the appointment with the doctor of your choice although that is not always possible.

If you wish to see a particular doctor or to make your appointment for a specific date then one of the pre-bookable appointments may enable you to plan your visit accordingly. However, with the doctors' other NHS commitments, this may mean booking a little way in advance. If your own doctor is unavailable please do not put your health at risk by unduly delaying your appointment.

Sign up to book appointments online by completing the form below and bring to the surgery together with photo ID.  Your password will then be sent to you.

Home Visits

If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.

Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability and are always at the discretion of the doctor.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

A rash or temperature does not prevent patients coming to the surgery and will not endanger others.  Simply tell the receptionist on arrival at the surgery. 

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.

Cancellations & Reminders

Cancel an Appointment

It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. 

Please either telephone the surgery to cancel your appointment or if you are registered for online services you can cancel on line. 

Text Reminder Service

We have a texting service which allows you to receive confirmation and reminders about your appointments.

To have this service you will need to register by completing a consent form.

Please remember to update your contact details with us when you change address, telephone numbers or email address.

The form below will sign you up for the SMS service and online access. Please complete the form and bring it to the surgery together with photo ID.  Your password will then be sent to you.

Chaperones

Some examinations that patients have to undergo can cause embarrassment and anxiety, and patients may prefer to have someone else present.

Following guidance from all the professional bodies, we will be offering and encouraging the use of chaperones in appropriate situations. You may decline the offer of a chaperone although in some circumstances the doctor may feel that a third person should be present and will discuss this with you if the need arises.

Interpreter

If you require an interpreter to attend with you when you see your Doctor please notify the surgery in advance.
