Appointments  

 

We regret that we currently have quite long wait times for GP appointments. Unfortunately one of our GPs left in the middle of March and is now working abroad, another has just started maternity leave, a third is away from the practice on compassionate leave and a fourth is unavoidably away from the practice until June.

 

We are pleased that we will be welcoming two (and possibly three) new GPs to the surgery in August and at that point we are hopeful that we will have significantly improved appointment availability.

 

We continue to offer a full same day service for patients whose medical condition requires them to be seen more urgently and we hope patients will bear with us as much as possible at the moment.

  

 

Patients are able to book and cancel appointments and order repeat medication on-line by going to the home page and clicking on the link. Before you can use this service, please speak to our reception team who will register you and provide you with a username and password. 

 

The demand for appointments with our doctors and nurses continues to increase. Sometimes patient requirements can be met by a simple return telephone call from the surgery, and our doctors are happy to provide this advice where appropriate.

 

If you ring the surgery to be seen urgently, please provide our trained and skilled receptionists with enough information for them to pass through to our medical team. In this way, the need and degree of urgency regarding your condition can be clinically assessed. You will also be asked to leave your telephone number so that a member of our team can call you back. 

 

Routine appointments are available with your registered doctor and form an important part of treating non-urgent and longer-term problems that your doctor has been managing on an ongoing basis.

 

If an appointment you have made is no longer necessary, PLEASE contact the surgery so another patient can be seen by our doctors and nurses. Telephone: 01692 402035
