Making an Appointment Online
You can now book and cancel doctor’s appointments online. This service, is available through Patient Access
It's very important that only genuine patients are granted internet access. The best way we can ensure this is to issue patients with a Registration Letter, which you must collect in person from your practice. You cannot book appointments online without one.
We run all our surgeries by an appointment only system and bookings can be made telephoning the surgery or using the online service (Doctors appointments only). You can book an appointment up to a month ahead.
Urgent cases will be seen on the same day, but it may be necessary to wait a day or more to see a specific doctor.
Separate appointments are required for each person who needs to see the doctor and it is is helpful if you only present with one problem at each consultation.
When we are full or very busy you may be offered a triage call from the duty doctor. The doctor may then arrange to see you, if necessary.
Alternatively you can book to speak with a doctor or nurse over the phone for routine matters that may not need an appointment. Please ensure you give a phone number you can be reached on.
Practice nurses & HCAs
Appointments with the nursing team normally follow a consultation with your GP or where you have a long-term condition such as Diabetes or COPD, the nurses will write to you and invite you in for periodic checks. It is very important that you attend these appointments and, where appropriate, contact the surgery to obtain results from any tests.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the appointment to someone else. Repeated failure to attend for appointments will be viewed seriously by the surgery and patients may be contacted to discuss the reasons for this.
