All consultations are by appointment only. Not all doctors are in the surgery every day. We will always try to accommodate the doctor of choice but there are occasions where this is not possible.
Appointments can be made in person or by telephone. We recognise that illnesses are not predictable. If the problem is medically urgent we will always try to offer you an appointment on the same day but we cannot guarantee your choice of doctor. Please let the reception know if you have a problem that cannot wait for a routine appointment and you will be seen as soon as possible. PLEASE do not request an emergency appointment other than for medically urgent problems.
We would appreciate as much notice as possible is given for routine appointments so that urgent requests may be given priority.
We aim to see patients at their allocated appointment time, however the nature of medical care means that it is inevitable that some consultations require longer than the scheduled time - or interruptions happen for urgent reasons. Though we do our best to keep to schedule, we will always give time to a sick or distressed person even if it means we occasionally run over time. Thank you for your understanding at these times.
Please remember that each appointment is for one person only.
Help us to help you. Please do everything to keep your appointment. Tell us as soon as possible if you cannot keep your appointment so we can offer it to another patient.
If a patient is late for a routine appointment, it is practice policy to ask the patient to make another appointment, however the doctor or nurse may still see you if time allows.
