The surgery offers patients the opportunity to book their own appointments online through the surgery website. In the last 6 months 500 appointments have been booked in this way but this was only a fraction of the 30,000 that were available!
We are keen to increase the number of appointments booked on the internet. This will reduce the number of phone calls coming into the surgery and as many of you will be aware, getting through on the phone is not always easy. It will also give you greater choice, accessibility and the ability to easily view what is available.
In order to use the service you will need to come in person to the surgery to obtain a username and password. With these you will be able to book and cancel doctor and nurse appointments and you will also be able to re-order your repeat medication.
