FOR ALL OTHER PROBLEMS AN APPOINTMENT WILL BE BOOKED FOR YOU WITH A DOCTOR
If your condition is non-urgent, you can either book a Routine appointment or a Routine Telephone appointment normally within five working days, though you may have to wait longer if you want to see a particular GP or there is a GP on leave . You also have the option to book up to 2 weeks in advance if this is more convenient for you.
Nurses based in our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions. You can expect to see a nurse within two working days. You can book up to a month ahead for clinics – please see the ‘services and clinics’ section.
If you need to book a routine follow-up appointment with a particular GP you can make an appointment up to two weeks in advance. Many routine appointments are for patients who have a long-term or chronic condition that needs monitoring on a regular basis.
It is important to continue your regular check-ups, even if you are feeling well. Routine appointments are available during normal surgery hours with the practice nurse and/or doctor.
