Personal Consultations - By Appointment

Consultations are by appointment only. The majority of our appointments are available to book up to 4 weeks in advance. Although you are entitled to see any doctor we would prefer you to see the same doctor each time you attend with an ongoing problem, as this helps the doctor to get to know you and your medical history in order to provide you with better medical care.

An appointment may be made by:

  • Telephoning the Practice on 01964 613221 the message will direct you to the options you require. Please do listen carefully to all the options.
  • On-line by following this link  - registration at the surgery is required for this service
We strive to offer an appointment with a GP within 48 hours. Appointments can be booked up to a month in advance. Please do not call before 8.30am or after 6.00pm to make an appointment.
 
If you cannot attend an appointment please notify the surgery as soon as possible. This saves the doctors’ time and may allow other patients to be seen. Always allow one appointment for each person to be seen

Urgent Appointments

Patients requiring urgent medical attention will always be seen. Please do not insist on an urgent appointment unless you are in genuine need as you could be preventing a person with a serious condition from seeing the doctor at that time. We encourage advanced booking of appointments whenever possible. Many of our same day urgent appointments are with our Nurse Practitioner. Should all the appointments be booked, the receptionist will take your name and telephone number and will ask a doctor or nurse to call you back to ascertain if there is a medical need for you to be seen the same day. This is a medical decision not a matter of preference.

Practice Nurses

You can have an appointment with the nurse without seeing a doctor. Our practice nurses provide treatment, carry out diagnostic tests, give advice on healthy lifestyle, provide contraceptive advice and treatment, monitor hormone replacement therapy, do pill checks, take smears and monitor and manage a range of chronic diseases. Chronic diseases that can be managed by our practice nurses include asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke prevention, heart disease prevention and COPD.
