How to see your doctor
Surgeries are held from 08:00am to 12:30am and 14:00pm to 18:00pm
You may consult any doctor in the practice by making an appointment at reception either in person, online or by telephone. Effort will be made to give a convenient appointment with the doctor of your choice, but if the receptionist is not able to a do so then an alternative will be suggested.
A proportion of each day’s appointments are reserved for same-day booking, and these are particularly appropriate for acute illnesses.
We also offer five minute emergency appointments each day. These appointments may not be with your usual GP.
We aim to see most of our patients within 15 minutes of the appointment time so please arrive on time. Sometimes we will run late because a patient has presented us with more than one problem or has a particularly difficult problem. Please be tolerant if this happens – we would give you extra time also if you needed it.
Your doctor can also advise you over the telephone. Please ring between 11:30 and 12:00. The practice nurses can also give telephone advice about minor illnesses or health worries.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
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.
