Via The Internet (Patient Access)
In order to book appointments online you must have previously obtained the necessary access codes. Please ask at reception for details.
For more information on appointment booking via Patient Access please read our guidance notes here.
We aim that you should see the Doctor of your choice, although this may not always be possible if the appointment you need is urgent.
For all ongoing illness, we hope that you will see the same Doctor throughout, as this allows us to follow your condition more closely - please inform the Receptionist of this when booking your appointment.
Routine Non-Urgent Appointments
These can be made up to four weeks ahead for the Doctor of your choice or on the day you wish to come. CLICK HERE to see when each of the GPs normally have their clinics.
These appointments are for genuine medical urgency and not for reasons of convenience. We ask you to respect this.
You may not be given the time or Doctor of your choice.
These are made available at special times either because they require extra time or the assistance of a midwife or nursing sister. These are for:
- Contraceptive advice
- Antenatal care - with our midwife
- Cervical smears
- Foreign travel immunisations and advice
- Baby immunisations
- Medical examination for insurance, fitness to drive and other activities
- Research or drug studies
Urgent Telephone Advice
If you wish to speak with the Duty Doctor via the telephone, please inform the receptionist, you will either be put through or your call will be returned as soon as reasonably possible.
Don’t forget you don’t always need an appointment with your GP for advice on coughs, colds and other minor health problems – you can see the practice nurse or local pharmacy instead.
