Face-to-Face Appointments – GP and Practice Nurses
Appointments can be made with the GPs and Practice Nurses by telephone, in person or online via the above link. In order to book appointments online you must have previously obtained the necessary access codes. Please ask at reception for details.
In order to make the most efficient use of our appointments, the doctors have requested our receptionists to ask patients to provide some brief information about the reason for their appointment. This is to ensure patients are directed to the service which can help them best, and because it is very helpful for the GPs and nurses to know in advance the purpose of your appointment.
Please arrive in good time and book in at reception. If you cannot attend for your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible in order that your appointment can be offered to another patient. On occasions, surgeries can run late because earlier consultations have taken longer than normal or your doctor has been called out to an emergency. We ask for your understanding and patience at such times.
We also offer telephone appointments with the GPs and Practice Nurses which can be booked with the receptionist in the normal way. You may find these useful if you wish to discuss test results or other follow–up or admin matters or if you wish to seek health advice. The receptionist will book a convenient time with you, take your contact number and the doctor or nurse will ring you back within the timeframe the receptionist will give you.
Same Day Problems
If you phone the surgery for a same–day appointment, you will be referred to the Duty Doctor who will phone you back and assess your problem and then direct you to the most appropriate route. This may mean a same–day appointment with the GP, a more routine appointment with a GP, practice nurse or health visitor, or telephone advice.
During office hours, telephone reception on 01865 777495. Please give clear details about the emergency, the name of the patient, address and telephone number. The duty doctor will be contacted immediately and will then decide the appropriate course of action and inform you of this.
