We offer both pre-booked face-to-face and telephone appointments. You can also register for online appointments which you can book at your convenience so long as there is a free slot available. Please ask reception about registering for online appointment booking if you are interested.
**Please ensure we have an up-to-date telephone number (including mobile number) at the time of booking to avoid any cases of miscommunication.
Up to 4 weeks in advance:
You can book appointments up to 4 weeks in advance as long as the sessions have been added to our system if you need to see a particular GP who has been involved with your care. Please explain this to reception when booking.
Please, please call us and cancel your appointment if you cannot attend.
Routine and same day appointments
We have a number of advance-bookable appointments which can be booked at any time, so long as there are some slots available. We also have same-day appointments which are only bookable from 08:00am onwards on the same day. Therefore if all of the advance-bookable slots have been taken up, there will still be some same-day appointments for you to book.
If there are no face-to-face appointments left for the whole day, you will still have the option to a GP on the same day for advice. Please ask for a telephone appointment (this is with the Duty Doctor) who will call you back within a certain time window of and discuss the matter. If the Duty Doctor speaks with you and decides that the matter cannot be dealt with over the phone, they can still make arrangements for you to be seen that day.
What are routine telephone appointments useful for?
Routine telephone consultations may be particularly useful if you are busy or work far away but need simple clinical advice or a follow-up with a particular doctor.
You may ask to see or speak to a specific doctor but if they are not in, you may be asked to leave a message with reception or book a telephone consultation with that doctor on the day when they are back.
Doctor or nurse?
You can book a nurse appointment for minor illnesses, cervical smear tests, dressings, stitch removal, ear syringing, family planning, general health & weight loss advice, child immunisations, travel vaccinations and urine sample testing.
