The practice policy is to offer a mixture of same day and prebookable appointments. We appreciate that patients have busy lives and we are happy to book appointments in advance. However, we do reserve some appointments for booking on the day, which gives us the flexibility to deal with patients problems as they arise.
We also realise that for reasons of continuity of care it is sometimes more appropriate for you to see a certain GP and they may not always be available on the day that you telephone.
We cannot guarantee that you will always be able to see the doctor of your choice but you will be offered alternatives, such as an appointment with another GP, the nurses, or a telephone consultation with a GP.
Appointments with the nursing team, midwives and physiotherapist can be organised in advance by telephoning the surgery.
