Routine consultations are available by appointment with Doctors, Nurse Practitioners and Practice Nurses each day.
Please note that not all our Doctors and Nurses are full time and may vary their working day. Urgent requests for appointments are dealt with throughout the day via our Triage System where a Clinician will return your call as soon as possible to assess the urgency of your request, either offering you an appointment or treatment as soon as is practically possible.
For an appointment please contact the surgery on 01253 201365.
Urgent conditions are always seen on the day. If your condition is non-urgent you can expect to see a GP within one working day, though you may have to wait longer if you request to see a particular GP.
Say immediately if your call is an emergency tell us if you are in a telephone box we can return your call. Let us know if more than one person in the family needs to be seen as we can make you a longer appointment if necessary.
Tell us if you want someone to accompany you during an examination or need a private room to discuss any matters.
If you need to be examined intimately you will always be offered a chaperone.
You can book to have a telephone consultation with a doctor or nurse. They will ring you at an agreed time on the telephone number you have given. This will usually be at the end of surgery unless it is an immediate emergency.
Our Reception Team will ask what your problem is so they can signpost you to the most appropriate Clinician to treat you.
If you have a mobile phone and we know your number we will text you a reminder the day before to keep or cancel your appointment.
If you are unable to attend an appointment for any reason please let us know as soon as possible.
Please help us to use our clinical time effectively as many appointments are lost each week when patients do not inform us they cannot attend.
