As we are operating on telephone triage you need to phone at 9am in the morning (excluding Wednesday). These appointments go very quickly however, daily there is between 75 and 120 slots (excluding Wednesday) depending on the day and what time of year. If you call and slots are filled you will be asked to call back the following day.
The doctor will prioritise their phone list and deal with the acutely unwell first so please give our receptionists as much information as possible. If you do not provide information unfortunately we cannot add you to our list. The doctor will aim to contact you before the end of the day. This could be a phone call, text or video consultation. They may decide you need to be examined, and if so will offer you a face to face appointment.
Please note Wednesday mornings are for antenatal and postnatal check-ups, childhood immunisations and emergencies only and no choice of doctor is available.
You will require a pre booked appointment for antenatal check-ups and childhood immunisations.
Bloods can be booked in the morning (excluding Wednesday), and afternoon nursing appointments are set aside for injections, dressings, INRs and BP monitoring.
Our nurses also run pre bookable clinics such as asthma, COPD, smears and diabetes.
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.
