Appointments can usually be pre-booked up to six weeks in advance, for more choice of your preferred practitioner or time. These spaces are limited in order to leave sufficient appointments to meet the daily demand of patients wanting to access a doctor or health professional urgently on the day.
You can book or cancel your appointment on-line, please ask at reception to register for this service. You can now book on-line for a range of different appointments including blood tests, injections, cervical smear, smoking cessation and weight management.
SystmOnline is now available to patients as an app for iPhones, iPads and other Apple devices running the iOS operating system. The app is listed on the App Store and is free to download. To download the app, search for "SystmOnline" in the app store. Patients can use their existing SystmOnline login details to access the online services offered via the app.
When the pre-bookable spaces are too far ahead or patients want an earlier appointment than offered, patients are asked to ring at 8am on the day on which they wish to be seen.
Appointments are issued on a first come first serve basis as soon as the appointments line opens at 8.00am.
Please make it clear to reception staff if you have a particular preference for either of the doctors in order that we may comply: Patients are now registered with the Practice rather than an individual GP. However patients may request to be seen by a practitioner of their choice for the purposes of continuing care, care of particular conditions, gender or ethnicity.
Please note that while we endeavour to comply with such requests circumstances may dictate that a patient may have to wait longer to see their preferred practitioner.
If you are unable to keep an appointment we ask that you cancel beforehand giving as much notice as possible so that the appointment can be offered to another patient. If you have registered for our on-line service, you can also cancel your appointment this way.
This practice offers bookable-on-the-day and pre-bookable telephone consultations with the doctors and nurse practitioner. These can be arranged for medical advice, medication advice where an examination is not required or for follow up appointments, please ask to book one if you feel your problem can be dealt with over the phone or if you are unable to make it to the surgery
