Routine Medical, Emergency & Advanced Booking Appointments -
have been suspended due to COVID.
IN THE CASE OF AN URGENT MEDICAL EMERGENCY SUCH AS SUSPECTED HEART ATTACK OR STROKE - YOU MUST TELEPHONE 999 IMMEDIATELY
We provide a range of appointments to enable patients to have clinical advice or treatment with a GP or Nurse dependent on their medical needs.
Appointments may not necessarily be with a preferred GP but may be with another GP or with one of the Locum GPs on our approved list.
Waiting times in the surgery
Please appreciate that the length of time required by each patient in a consultation is variable and unpredictable. From time to time, a medical emergency or sudden death will require a Doctor to leave the premises unexpectedly. We would ask patients to understand it is impossible for the Doctor, or Nurse, always to keep to a rigid timetable and delays may occur.
We would remind patients that all Doctors in the Practice are responsible for your care. It may not always be necessary to see the same Doctor and, in some instances, our nursing staff may be able to assist you. All patients' medical records are computerised and access is available to all clinicians in the practice to ensure continuity of care.
Abuse of the appointment system, including obtaining emergency appointments for invalid reasons, cannot be allowed. Patients are requested to be considerate by cancelling appointments in sufficient time so may be given to others.
