Appointments

We are following the government guidelines and have changed our appointments system in the light of the current Coronavirus situation.

We are reducing non-essential attendance at the surgery. Hence you will be initially assessed with a telephone consultation (triage call) and no face-to-face consultations are bookable without clinician approval. Please help the reception team, when they ask you for information regarding your problem or query.

We have also temporarily disabled the ability to book appointments online, following advice from NHS England, to ensure we can help patients book the most appropriate appointment with the most appropriate person, and only face-to-face if clinically required.

Alternatively, you may wish to use the new eConsult service instead of an appointment. Please note, while we endevour to complete every request by the end of next working day, due to current circumstances, we may not be able to stick to this time frame. All requests will be actioned within 72 working hours.

For non-urgent issues, please follow the guidelines below and choose the right service, which can help you without any appointment. This will help us being more efficient and making an appointment available to you when you need it the most.

Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice, over the counter medicines and their use, to effectively and safely manage a range of minor health concerns. They can also help you to decide whether you'll need to see a doctor. You don't need an appointment and you won't even be asked to make a purchase. Every pharmacy also has a private consultation area for you to talk about your symptoms in private if you prefer.

Why does the receptionist need to ask what’s wrong with me?

Our reception staff are important members of the practice team and it has been agreed they should ask patients ‘why the need to be seen’.

We have trained our reception staff to ask certain questions to help make sure you receive the most appropriate medical care from the most appropriate health professional at the most appropriate time.
