If you feel you need to be seen on the same day as a medical urgency, please call our appointment's line :
The Doctors have asked patients to give the receptionist a brief discription of their symptoms. This enables us to ensure you are given an appointment with the correct clinician - we now have an Emergency Care practitioner who can deal with many urgent problems and patients will be offered an appointment with the ECP if he can deal with the problem. This frees up the GPs to allow them to deal with more complex issues.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Patients are encouraged to see their own GP whenever possible.
Appointments are at 10 minute intervals and can be booked up to one month in advance - if you have multiple problems to discuss - please ask to book a double appointment ( 20 mins ) If this is not done - the GP may deal with the most important problem during the appointmentThe GP can only deal with one patient during each 10 minute appointment - they cannot 'squeeze' in another family member.
To book an appointment - the quickest and easiest way is to go online - see link above for details.
