Appointment System 

(For current surgery times please enquire at reception)

Consultations are by appointment only. Appointments can be booked up to 14 days ahead. We try to offer an appointment with your preferred doctor at the earliest opportunity but if it is busy or your doctor is not available you may see another doctor.

The Practice also offers 'urgent' appointments (for patients that have a medical need for a consultation that day), however the practice only has a finite number of appointment slots and patients are reminded that a GP will see them if deemed urgent.

Urgent cases will be seen as soon as possible

Urgent cases (patients who need to be seen and cannot wait until the next routine appointment) will be seen at the end of a surgery - for their immediate problem only. As a consequence, the appointment will be brief, and you are advised to use the appointment system for other consultations. Because of the type of consultation, we cannot guarantee that you will be seen by a specific GP, or how long you may have to wait. The Doctors reserve the right to discuss with the patient the appropriate use of this service.

Your G.P. surgery is not always the correct place to go for every medical problem you may have.

Other services are better equipped to deal with certain issues and can be accessed easily and quickly.

How To Get The Most From Your Appointment

Ask yourself: How important is it that I’m seen quickly, or would I be better waiting for an appointment with a particular GP? If you have a long-term condition you’ll probably benefit from a GP who knows you. Do I really need to see the GP or could the nurse or pharmacist help me?  

Don’t be put off by a GP who runs late – they may be spending needed time with patients. One day you may appreciate them running late for you.  

It’s tempting to bring a list of unrelated problems, but consider what’s achievable in 10 minutes. 4 problems in 10 minutes - that’s 150 seconds each. It’s often better to come back again and spend more time on a problem rather than squeeze as many as you can into one ten minute appointment.  

Before you see the GP, work out in your own mind what you’re worried about, and highlight any particular concerns. Consider preparing short notes, including how you would describe your symptoms.  

Get to the point, don’t beat about the bush and don’t keep important issues until the end.  

Wear accessible clothing if you’re likely to need to undress for examination.  

Make sure you understand what happens next, if you are not sure ask to go through the plan again.  

Have your say and get your views heard; join our patient participation group and please fill in a Friends and Family card after each contact you have with the surgery.
