Appointments

Calling for an appointment

When you call us for an appointment you will be given a series of options:

Routine appointments

Routine appointments are available and can be pre- booked, although you may have to wait for an appointment with the doctor of your choice. These are for non- urgent matters and for patients who prefer to have continuity by seeing the doctor who has been looking after an on- going problem.

We also offer early morning appointments for patients who cannot attend during our normal surgery times.

If you require a blood test you will need to pre-book an appointment as we no longer offer a walk-in phlebotomy service.

Urgent appointments

All requests for urgent care will be dealt with on the same day if the doctor or one of our Nurse Practitioners feels this appropriate.

We will ask you for some brief details and a phone number where one of the clinical team can ring you back to discuss your needs. The Reception team have been requested to ask for some information about your problem as this helps the doctor to prioritise the work for the day.

Nurse appointments

Our Practice Nurses undertake a wide range of duties which mainly focus on the management of chronic disease, eg monitoring heart and stroke conditions, diabetes and asthma. They also carry out well man and woman checks, review blood pressure, undertake medication reviews, give immunisations and advise on contraception.
