Telephone Triaging

From the end of October we will be changing the days we offer telephone triaging. Telephone triage will take place on days when we have a shortage of GP's in.

Same Day Appointments

The majority of appointments are released each morning, ensuring that patients are able to be seen on the day that they require an appointment.

We ask that patients telephone the surgery before 10.30am to arrange an appointment for that day. Requests for a same day appointment cannot usually be met if the call is made later in the morning, or the afternoon, unless it is a strict medical emergency.

Book in Advance

Appointments can also be booked up to four weeks in advance, but these are limited.

Appointments Online

You can now book & cancel your appointments online using SystmOnline .

If you have not registered for the service and obtained a username and password, please see one of our reception team.

If you have obtained a username and password, you are ready to use the service.

Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to keep your appointment or no longer need it, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer it to another patient.

Late Arrival for your Appointment

If you arrive late for your appointment but within the allotted appointment time you may be seen but this will be at the clinician’s discretion.

If you arrive after your allotted time slot you will not be seen and will be asked to book again for another day.

This is so we can try to keep our clinics running to time and not keep other patients waiting.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Telephone Advice

If you need telephone advice from a doctor or nurse, please leave your contact details with the receptionist. The practitioner will then ring you later in the day.

The receptionists have been asked not to disturb practitioners with non-urgent problems while they are seeing patients.

Home Visits

If you are too unwell to attend the surgery and require a home visit, please request it before 10.30am. This way you are more likely to see your usual doctor and we can plan our day more efficiently.

The receptionist may ask you for directions and a few details of your condition so that the doctor can assess the urgency of your visit.

Please attend the surgery if you can. The doctors can see more patients and provide a more comprehensive service from the surgery.

If you require an immediate visit please make this clear to the receptionist.

Nurses Appointments

Please book in advance wherever possible.

The receptionist will then be able to book an appointment for the correct nurse, time or clinic, as they have different skills and specialities.
