Appointments are available for booking up to 28 days in advance. These appointments can be booked either at the reception desk, by telephone or GP appointments can be booked on-line using the Patient Access booking system (see reception for a registration form).
Our nurses with extended skills provide on the day urgent appointments and are able to refer to GPs where appropriate.
The practice runs a nurse triage service daily where nurses offer help/advice over the telephone for many ailments which can be managed at home or by the pharmacy. They will also advise as to whether a GP or nurse appointment is needed.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
Patients who constantly do not attend the appointments they have booked will be contacted by the surgery. Non-attendance not only wastes doctors or other clinical staffs time, but also extends the waiting times for other patients.
