Our Appointment System

Before booking an appointment with one of our clinicians, it may be worth looking at our self-referrals to check if a surgery appointment is needed for the service you require.

 

How to Book an Appointment

You can make an appointment in the following ways:

 

Help Us to Help You

Please only request an urgent appointment if it is a real emergency and you require immediate treatment.

All the doctors will try and keep waiting time to a minimum, and staff will inform you of any unusual circumstances. Please be patient however, as there may come a time when you need a longer than normal consultation yourself.

Appointments are for one person only. If several members of one family needs to be seen, you must tell the receptionist who will make appointments for all of them.

 

See a Nurse

…for blood tests, vaccinations, blood pressure checks, health reviews, ECGs, family planning and sexual health advice, wound management and cervical screening.

To arrange an appointment with a nurse, please telephone the practice on 01636 704225

 

Annual Reviews

If you suffer from a chronic disease such as asthma, diabetes, COPD or have a heart condition, most of your care will be provided by our nursing team. You will be called for annual review usually around your birthday month. You do not need to make a doctors appointment to discuss treatment for these conditions.

If you have been informed that your annual review is due, please visit our Self Help and Wellbeing Centre and complete the relevant form.

 

Chaperones

If you would like a chaperone present during your consultation, please advise the receptionist.
