Routine Appointments

Routine appointments are available with all of the doctors up to 3 months in advance.

There are also a limited number of appointments available 48 hours in advance with each doctor.

If you need to see a doctor urgently, we will always give you an appointment and you will be fitted in to see which ever doctor is available.

On Line Booking

To book an appointment on-line you will firstly need to login/register to use Patient Access. You will then be able to view your appointments or book an appointment to see a doctor.

If you are not already registered to use Patient Access, please note that once you have registered you will be required to bring photo ID into the Surgery before we can activiate this facility for you.

PATIENT ACCESS FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE - Please read our information leaflet regarding 12-16 year olds

Extended access

We now offer a limited number of pre-booked appointments outside our usual surgery opening hours, these will be on:
Monday 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Tuesday and Thursday 7:30am - 8:00am

These appointments must be booked during normal surgery hours (Monday to Friday 8:00am - 6:30pm). We can't see people requiring emergency appointments during these extended access times. You should contact the out-of-hours service in the normal way on 111.

Home Visits

For patients who are too ill to come to the surgery, a home visit should be requested, where possible before 10:00 a.m. Please be prepared to give details of the problem so that the doctor can assess the urgency of the visit (in some cases you may be advised to go to the Accident and Emergency Department or to call for an ambulance).

It is appreciated that patients attend the surgery if at all possible, as this is usually quicker for the patient and makes the best use of the doctor's time.

Your doctor can usually see several patients at the surgery in the time that it takes to make a single housecall.

Do you require a longer appointment?

The normal length of an appointment with a doctor is 10 minutes If you think you will need a longer consultation, please tell the receptionist when you book the appointment.

We are trying to help the GPs run to time during their surgeries. However, there will be times when, for certain reasons, such as dealing with an emergency, the doctor may be late in seeing you and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you are unable to keep your appointment, let us know as soon as possible so that the appointment can be offered to someone else.

Telephone Consultations

If you prefer, and provided it is appropriate, you can arrange for a telephone consultation with a doctor who will phone you at the end of surgery on a number of your choice.

Chaparone Policy

The Practice has a Chaperone policy. All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation. Please request this at the time of booking or speak to your GP.
