Simply book online, phone or call in to make an appointment. These are booked at 10 minute intervals. We aim to offer a routine appointment within 5 working days (this may not be with a doctor of your choice). If you feel that you need an appointment for longer than 10 minutes with a GP please speak to reception. Only single bookings can be made on line.
If you need to be seen on the day please leave your number with reception by calling before 10:30 and a doctor will contact you to arrange appropriate clinical care. Longer appointments can sometimes be arranged in special circumstances, and are offered routinely where interpreters are used or if you have a learning disability.
Although you will be registered with one doctor, you may see any doctor you choose. We recommend you try to see the same doctor each time, as far as possible, so that you have better continuity of care. Please tell the receptionist if you need time for more than one person (e.g. if bringing children) so that adequate time is allocated.
Please note - If you arrive more than ten minutes late for an appointment, you may be asked to make another appointment - unless it is an emergency.
From Monday to Friday, GP clinics are reserved for patients with conditions needing urgent medical advice and attention. These clinics are not to be used for long-standing medical problems; problems that could wait until a routine appointment is available; medical certificates; or repeat prescriptions. If you think you need to be seen the same day, please try to phone before 10:30 and a doctor or a nurse will return your call. It may not always be possible to see the doctor of your choice.
