Our New Appointment Process
Due to high levels of patients not attending their appointments and limited appointment availability we have reviewed our appointment system to offer improved access to see our GPs.
Please can we remind you to cancel any appointments that you no longer require, so we have appointment availability for those who may require them.
With our new appointment system the aim is that you will be able to book a routine appointment within a two week period.
How it will work:
Routine appointments (non-urgent) will be released on a daily basis. The surgery opens from 8:30am so you are invited to call from this time. Once all of the ‘daily released appointments’ have been taken you will be advised by our reception team to call the next day.
These daily released appointments will also be available to book on-line should you wish to sign up to our online service please visit the surgery and have the reception team set up your online access or if you have access already please click here to view available appointments.
Please be patient with our staff during this transitional stage, our change is to improve our services for our patients. Thank you
