We aim to ensure all patients asking for a routine appointment are able to see a GP within 48 hours of the request and for a healthcare professional within 24 hours for a routine appointment. Within this timescale we won’t always be able to offer an appointment with the GP of your choice, so if you want to see a particular person you might need to wait a little longer. All consultations are by appointment, made either in person, by telephone 01752 222341 or using our online booking system.
Appointments are available two weeks in advance and you will be offered the first available appointment with a doctor, to help the surgeries run as smoothly as possible please bear in mind the following:
- Be punctual
- Cancel appointments in good time – someone else may need it
- 1 appointment is for 1 patient
A home visit can take three times as long as surgery appointments due to the travelling time. Therefore, doctors would appreciate it if patients can attend surgery whenever possible. If you are too ill to attend and require a home visit, please telephone 01752 222341 before 10am in order to let the doctors plan their work more efficiently except in an emergency. All home visits are undertaken at the doctor’s discretion.
