Doctor Surgery Appointments

If you request an appointment with a GP you will be asked for a brief description of your symptoms. This is to assist us prioritise and allow us to offer the most appropriate appointment, please provide this information when asked. Seeing the same GP for an episode of care aids continuity so we would ask you to try as far as possible to do this and book in advance if your are asked to return.

Nurse Surgery Appointments

If you request an appointment with a nurse, you will be asked what it is for by the Receptionist. This is to ensure that you are given the correct length of appointment and to enable the nurse to spend the required time with you to carry out the consultation. You do not have to be specific and in-depth in your response, but the reason for asking is to provide you with the best care we can.

Home Visits
There is a Doctor available each day to undertake requests for home visits. Those who are housebound or too ill to attend the surgery can request a home visit by phoning 0345 337 6320, before 11.00am. Only emergencies will be visited after this time.

It is important that requests are made as early in the day as possible to enable the Doctors to plan their day and to ensure, as far as possible, surgeries are not disrupted due to late requests. A Doctor, or if appropriate a nurse, will visit or may telephone to assess the need for a home visit. If you feel that you cannot wait, the Receptionist will get a Doctor to speak to you, to assess the urgency of the request and, if necessary, to attend sooner.
Telephone Consultations
If you request a telephone consultation, you will be asked if it is something you require to be examined for. If so, a telephone consultation will not be appropriate and a surgery consultation will be necessary. If it is established that a telephone consultation is suitable you will be asked for a contact number and a Doctor or nurse will telephone you at approximately the time you have been allocated.
