Make An Appointment

You could be offered the following:

  • A telephone or face to face appointment with a GP.
  • A telephone or face to face appointment with a nurse practitioner or a practice nurse.
  • An appointment with a healthcare assistant
  • A telephone appointment with the practice pharmacist to discuss a medication query.

To ensure you get the correct appointment you may be asked for some information about your problem by the reception staff when booking. This information will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Routine Appointments

These can be booked up to four weeks in advance. We try to provide appointments with your usual GP for continuity of care but this is not always possible. Please try to phone in the afternoon to book routine appointments as phone lines tend to be quieter then.

Telephone Appointments

Are suitable for:

  • Results of investigations or blood tests
  • Urine infections
  • Management of minor illness
  • Emergency contraception
  • Medication re-authorisation
  • General health queries

Telephone appointments are five minutes long. It is always best to try to talk to your usual GP.

GP/Nurse Practitioner Same Day Appointments

We offer a number of on the day appointments which can be requested from 8.00am and are for URGENT cases that need same day attention. On the day appointment requests are triaged.

GP/Nurse Practitioner Routine Appointments

These can be booked ahead with a GP of your choice and are 10-minute appointments. It is possible to deal with one and sometimes two problems in this time. If your problem is complex or you have more than one, please consider booking a 20-minute (double) appointment. Double appointments may also be appropriate for gynaecological problems, emotional issues and joint infections. If the GP is unable to deal with your problems in one appointment you may be asked to make another appointment. Longer appointments can be arranged at your GP's discretion.

Practice Nurse Appointments

The practice nurses run chronic disease clinics for diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). They also deal with complex wound problems and dressings, cervical smears and ear syringing.

Healthcare Assistants (HCA) Appointments

The HCA runs a clinic where you can book for blood samples, blood pressure monitoring and ECGs.
