Non-urgent advice: How to Make an Appointment
Non-urgent advice: On the day (Urgent only)
Every day at 8.00am a limited number of telephone appointments become available, enabling you to speak to our doctors quickly if that needed. During the consultation, the GP or Physicians Associate will make a decision whether yours is an issue that could be dealt with over the phone or if you need to be seen in our practice. If the latter is the case, they will book an appointment for you to be seen either by themselves at our Practice or GP at one of the Hubs.
At such short notice there is much less flexibility over the time of the appointment and choice of clinician.
Non-urgent advice: How to Cancel an Appointment
If you are unable to attend your appointment for any reason, or the health problem for which you booked your appointment has cleared up, please remember to cancel your appointment. Even cancelling your appointment with 10 minutes’ notice will enable us to see other patients in need.
We have a large number of people who do not attend their appointments every single week leading to wasted doctor and nurse time, leading to delays in you being able to get an appointment.
On average there are 60 missed appointments per month.
Please let us know well in advance if you cannot make your appointment so that it may be allocated to another patient.
