How to see your doctor
The practice uses an appointment system. Your routine appointment will usually be with your registered GP during surgery hours. If you require an urgent same day appointment we operate a triage system which involves leaving your name and contact telephone number with the receptionist following which a triage doctor will call you back to deal appropriately with your medical need. This maybe either be by arranging an appointment to see a clinician or by a telephone consultation.
Requesting to see a particular GP
Patients have the right to request to see a particular GP in the practice either generally or in relation to any particular condition. It may not however be possible to match the request with available appointments.
If you would like a chaperone present for your appointment, please just ask when booking, or in the consultation.
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 ailments and you may be seen more quickly.
If you need to speak to a doctor or practice nurse please telephone in the morning and the receptionist will arrange for the doctor or practice nurse to ring you back at a mutually convenient time.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
