We will no longer be booking face to face appointments at Reception, unless we deem that exceptional circumstances exist.
What happens when you ring our Appointment Line?
A Receptionist will answer your call and ask how they can help.
If you are requesting an appointment, you will be asked by the Receptionist the nature of your problem. This allows them to make sure the right person deals with you in a timely fashion.
This could be a Practice Nurse, Health Care Assistant or a GP.
If your treatment requires input by a GP, you will be put onto a Triage Telephone appointment list and a Doctor will call you back. They will discuss your condition and any appropriate treatment.
Once you have spoken to the GP; they may make an appointment for you to come into the Practice for a physical examination.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
As well as being able to see when we are open at the click of a mouse we’ve made it easier for you to do a number of things. Check out how to order a repeat prescription or cancel your appointment.
