Appointments are generally at ten minute intervals. If you feel you require a longer appointment please speak with our receptionists who will be happy to assist.You are free to see whichever doctor you wish
Routine appointments for GP’s and nurses can usually be booked 8 weeks in advance. Emergency appointments are available every day.
Our receptionists are trained to ask for brief details of your request which can be helpful to our doctors and nurses in helping to prioritise an urgent request for an appointment. This is helpful to us but by no means mandatory, so please feel comfortable in the amount of information you wish to provide.
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. If you're not sure ask the receptionist for guidance.
