Access to Doctors/Nurses
In keeping with Government guidelines we are working towards an appointment system that allows access to a doctor or nurse within 48hrs. We may not always be able to meet this, particularly at times of high demand. However, we guarantee to see anyone the same day if the patient considers this to be necessary.
The practice operates a variety of appointments.
Due to Covid Restrictions: we are triaging all patient calls and when neccessary we will invite patient in for an face to face appointment.
Same Day Appointments: a small percentage of our daily appointments are same day appointments only.
Medical Emergency Appointments: are available every day for patients in need of urgent medical attention. These appointments are triaged by a GP or Practice Nurse, If you do need to see a doctor urgently please phone the surgery between 8.45am and before 1.00pm, a clinician will call you back the same day. It would be helpful to give the receptionist some information so your call can be prioritised.
Extended Hours: The GP Extended Hours service is designed to provide patients with appointments outside core general practice hours for routine care and is available: Monday's and Tuesday's between 5.30pm and 6.30pm.
This service covers all the normal illnesses and injuries that you would want to see your GP about.
Double Appointments: If you anticipate needing a longer consultation, please inform the receptionist and ask for a double appointment.
