We have a wide range of appointment times available for both doctors and practice nurses.
Seeing the doctor may not always be necessary. Please check the practice team and their roles to see who can deal with your questions best.
Appointments can be booked in advance. Many problems concerning advice can be dealt with over the phone and it may be more convenient for the doctor or nurse to telephone you. If you think this is appropriate please advise reception staff when you call. It might not be your usual GP who will contact you.
We will always deal with urgent requests that day. If surgeries are already fully booked, and you do not feel that your problem will wait until the next available routine appointment, the receptionist will arrange for a doctor or nurse to telephone you to discuss the most appropriate way of managing your request.
If you need an appointment with a nurse, please inform the receptionist of the type of appointment required, (e.g. blood test, cervical smear, ECG, dressing, blood pressure monitoring, new patient medical etc.) so that adequate time can be made available.
GP appointments are routinely set at 10 minutes and nurse appointments at 15 minutes. If you feel you need more time please mention this to the receptionist when making the appointment.
