New Information:- July 2019
The Surgery is now offering Extended Hour Appointments on Saturday's between 8.30-11.00am
Consultations are by appointment and can be booked in person or over the telephone during opening hours. Our patients can see any of the doctors regardless of which doctor they are registered with.
Appointments can be booked online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration prior to using the service.
All children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult when attending for consultation with either the doctor or nurse.
It is necessary, on some occasions, for the reception staff to ask you for information if the GP requires it. For example, if you wish to make appointments with the Nurse they will need to know what appointment time to allocate for you and the nurse may have to make some preparation prior to your arrival - depending upon your requirements. Some procedures require lengthy slots of up to an hour and you will usually find that you will need to book further in advance for certain procedures and you will need to provide information to the staff.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
Practice Nurse services include:
Diabetic care, asthma care, lifestyle checks, cholesterol monitoring, blood pressure monitoring ,flu and pneumonia vaccination, immunisations & vaccinations (childhood, adult, travel), contraception (including repeat prescriptions for the pill), HRT care – including repeat prescriptions, dressings, removal of stitches, ear syringing & many other services.
Our nurse is seen by appointment but patients without appointments can usually be seen at short notice at the end of the session or fitted in if we have a cancellation – those patients with appointments have priority.
Some treatment room procedures are very lengthy and you may need to book well in advance for these.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure if they wish. This may be a family member or friend or member of our staff. Your clinician may also prefer a chaperone to be present.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. Failure to attend without prior notice may result in removal from the practice list.
