Routine Doctor appointments can usually be booked up to 4 weeks in advance. Wait times for these appointments can vary dependent upon demand or for a particular doctor.
Additional Doctor appointments are released daily from 8am. These appointments are for patients that feel that they need to be seen sooner than the next available pre-bookable appointment and are not reserved exclusively for urgent conditions.
Urgent cases are assessed and seen as soon as possible on the day according to clinical need and may require a telephone call from the doctor.
If we are unable to provide a suitable appointment, appropriate advice or signposting to alternative services will be provided by one of our doctors.
Nurses based in our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions. They often have greater availability for appointments and can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.
Whatever the day or time, if you or someone else experiences severe chest pain, shortness of breath, loss of blood or suspected broken bones, go to your nearest accident and emergency department or call 999.
Accident and emergency departments are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and can assess serious injuries and provide emergency treatment.
Our doctors typically see four patients in the practice in the time it takes to do a single visit and can also access a wider range of equipment that cannot be taken out on home visits. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the practice if at all possible.
However, if a home visit is required it would be appreciated if, wherever possible, requests are telephoned to the surgery before 10:00am. This service is ONLY for patients who are too ill or infirm to attend the surgery. Transport to the surgery is NOT the responsibility of the doctors. The doctors may telephone to clarify if a visit is clinically necessary.
You can book to have a telephone consultation with a doctor. He or she will ring you at an agreed time on the telephone number you have given.
