The majority of GP surgeries are no longer accepting walk–in patients. To help reduce the spread of infection, please:
You have the right to choose the doctor you see and we will do our best to accommodate you at all times.
The doctors will endeavour to see genuine emergencies at the end of each surgery. If you have a serious problem such as severe chest pain, severe bleeding or you are having difficulty breathing please call an ambulance before phoning the surgery.
The doctors are able to provide phone consultations. You can ring the main reception telephone number from 8:30am and leave your contact details and a doctor will ring you back as soon as it is possible. Once all the slots are used on a given day, only emergency calls will be taken.
Missed appointments (did not attend/DNAs) The practice requests that if you cannot attend an appointment that you phone us immediately preferably 24 hours in advance so the appointment can be given to someone else. We understand that it has been an oversight on your part, but on average there are 60 missed appointments per month. This equates to five surgeries per month.
