Non Urgent / Routine
Appointments can generally be booked up to 3 months in advance, consulting times are detailed on the home page. Most appointments with the Doctors are of 10 minute duration. Some consultations particularly with the Nurse may take slightly longer. If you are able to advise the receptionist what your appointment is for we can allocate suitable time aside with the Nurse. Please advise the receptionist if you wish to see a particular Doctor, and they will be able to advise on availability.To assist you, the current months Doctor's rota is available via a link on the home page.
We hold back a number of appointments each day, for patients that feel that their symptoms are such that they feel that they need to see a Doctor that day. These appointments are intended for patients with an urgent medical need. Inappropriate use of these slots is likely to lead to genuinely ill patients having to wait longer to see a Doctor.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please contact our reception desk as soon you know, so that your appointment may be offered to another patient. Please telephone reception on 01672 870388 or use the cancel appointment wizard on the home page.
