How To Book

If you have been advised by letter or text message to make a follow-up appointment with a clinician, please telephone the surgery on 01795 530 777 and one of our patient co-ordinators will be happy to help.  Please ensure you inform the patient co-ordinator that you  have been asked by letter or text message to book the appointment.

 

Appointment Duration

Please be awarethat routine appointments are 10 minutes in duration; only one issue/ailment will be dealt with. If you require more time, you will be asked to book another appointment.  If you know that you need to discuss multiple or complex issues then please ask our receptionists for a double appointment at the outset.

 

Nurse Practitioner Appointments

Our nurse practitioners are trained to assess and manage minor illnesses. Patients seeking urgent appointments should be aware that they may be assessed by a nurse practitioner in the first instance who will decide on treatment or refer to a doctor if necessary. Our nurse practitioners are qualified independent nurse prescribers and are able to prescribe a wide range of prescription only medications.

 

Telephone Consultations

If you do not require a physical examination the surgery can offer a consultation by telephone.

Timings for telephone calls cannot be given; you may be given a timeframe in which the GP will be able to carry out the telephone consultation. 

Please note for medico - legal reasons these calls are recorded.
