SEEING A DOCTOR
Surgeries and clinics are by appointment only and these can be arranged either in person or by telephoning 01286 684100. There are a selection of pre-bookable appointments available with the GP up to two weeks in advance. The selection of pre-bookable appointments available are reserved for patients who need to make prior arrangements with work commitments or for those who require to be accompanied by carers.
Mondays are an extremely busy day for GPs. We would appreciate if non urgent / routine problems could be dealt with during mid-week surgeries.
Thank you for your cooperation
Consultations are 10 minutes long so please try and discuss only one problem. If you find that you cannot keep the appointment please cancel it in good time. You can cancel an appointment by ringing us on 01286 684100.
If you have a preference for a GP, please let the receptionist know when making the appointment. Every effort will be made to carry out your wish.
Routine children's immunisations are carried out out in our specialist Child Health Clinics. Routine adult immunisations are by appointment with a practice nurse. Detailed information regarding any immunisations is available from nhs choices
Diagnosing and treating medical problems is best done in our fully equipped surgery and for the majority of medical conditions, including those affecting babies and children, it is perfectly safe to attend surgery. However, if you are housebound or genuinely too ill to visit the surgery please contact the surgery as soon as possible after 8.00am in order to request a home visit and PLEASE try to make the request before 10.00am if at all possible. A GP may call you back to discuss your request.
