Appointments

Before requesting an appointment with one of our clinicians, it may be worth looking at our self-referrals page to check if a surgery appointment is needed for the service you require.

How to Request an Appointment

You can request an appointment in the following ways:

If you are pregnant please ensure you bring your maternity folder / notes with you every time you attend the surgery.

Telephone Appointments

Our GPs are allocated time slots throughout the week for these telephone appointments.

Please speak with reception, if you require an appointment with a specific doctor.

Appointment Reminder Service

The practice will remind you of any appointments via text message.

For more information, please contact the practice.

Did Not Attends

Due to a high number of patients failing to attend appointments, it has become necessary to implement the following policy:

Each time you fail to attend an appointment, we will write to you. If you fail to attend three appointments in a 12-month period, the practice will consider removing you from the patient list.

You will then have to find an alternative GP practice in the local area.

Don’t waste valuable appointments; if you cannot attend your appointment for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible, giving at least 24 hours notice. We can then offer the appointment to someone else.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Cancelling an Appointment

If you are unable to keep an appointment please let us know as soon as possible – this may enable someone else to be seen.

To cancel, you can:
