A number of appointments can be booked online via Patient Access. If you don’t have an account you can sign up on the Patient Access website.
You also have the option of consulting a doctor online, rather than booking an appointment and coming to the surgery – see the home page “Contact our team to get advice for your problem now”.
Booking by telephone
Appointments can be booked by telephoning 01749 675 665. Lines are open from 8am until 6.30pm. It is usually easiest to get through after 2pm and we advise calling after this time to arrange a pre-bookable appointment.
You can now receive appointment reminders on your mobile phone, please ask at reception.
Types of appointment
Appointments can be loosely grouped into:
- Same day: These will now be managed by our On the Day Team, please see details above.
- Routine: for medical/health problems that can be seen safely within a few weeks.
- Telephone: for problems when a face-to-face appointment is not required.
Same day appointments
These are now managed by our On the Day Team, please see details above.
These can be pre-booked up to 1 month in advance. Ideally, you should book an appointment with your usual doctor. We would very much like to be able to offer routine appointments within 48 hours, but at times it may be that you have to wait 2 or more weeks for an appointment. It is not our desire for the wait to be so long but the significant and constantly growing demand on the NHS is not being matched with increased resources available to Primary Care.
These can be pre-booked up to 1 month in advance. These can be convenient and useful appointments when there is no need to be seen face-to-face. You will book for a morning or afternoon telephone call and will be called as close to your allocated time as possible. It is worth noting that due to the competing and often unpredictable demands on our work an exact time cannot be guaranteed.
Please note that all calls to and from the surgery are recorded.
We do not offer “emergency care” or “minor injury service”.
In an emergency please dial 999 or attend Accident and Emergency. If you have suffered a minor injury please attend a Minor Injury Unit (MIU).
