PLEASE NOTE APPOINTMENT FOR BLOOD TESTS MUST BE BEFORE 4pm

Appointments can be made by telephone during surgery hours.  We also have Internet Appointment Booking Facility.  Please ask at reception for details.  If you have a personal preference for a particular doctor, please inform the receptionist when making the appointment – we can then search for an appointment that fits your particular request.

Please help us to run on time wherever possible by booking one appointment for one person for one problem.  If you need another member of your family to be seen, or have several problems which need to be dealt with, please make separate appointments.

We occasionally get feedback from some of our patients that they don’t like being asked by the receptionist for some idea of why they want to see the doctor or nurse.  We appreciate that this information may be confidential.  However, there are some situations where it is helpful or even vital that we know what the problem is.

If you ask for an appointment with a practice nurse, the receptionist needs to know what the problem is so that they can direct you to the most appropriate nurse.  Not all our nurses do the same disease clinics, for example.  Also some conditions need longer appointments to do the necessary checks.
