Appointments are available during the surgery opening hours.
You can see any doctor, not just the doctor with whom you are registered. All surgeries are run by appointment although the practice is looking at ways of providing services that may meet demand in better ways.
Urgent Cases will be seen on the same day but if there are no appointments left you may be asked to come and wait until a doctor is available.
If you are Pregnant and unable to get an appointment you can contact the ante-natal day unit at your local hospital who will be able to offer you advise.
If Your Case Is Not Urgent you will be offered the first available appointment with the doctor of your choice.
If You Cannot Keep Your Appointment please let us know so that it can be given to someone else. You can register for on line services where you can make and cancel appointments. Alternatively see the Text 2 Cancel information below. Please make every effort to be on time for your appointment. The practice loses approx. 60 appointments a week due to people defaulting their appointments. If a patient fails to attend three appointments, without cancellation, in twelve months, their name will be removed from the practice's patient list.You have the right to appeal against this procedure by putting an appeal in writing to the Practice Manager and your case will be investigated further.
Nurse appointments are available as appropriate.
