We continue to offer telephone appointments for ALL appointment requests with our GPs.
A few of these appointments are pre-bookable but the majority of these appointments are bookable on the day and are available to book from 8am.
Please be aware that if you book either a pre-bookable or an on the day appointment then the GP will phone you at any time in morning after 8am. Please be ready to take a call from 8am onwards.
If you wish to make an on the day appointment please contact us early in the day. We are now busier than in previous weeks and have become aware that some patients are phoning us later in the morning by which time most of our appointments might already be booked. If we are fully booked and your problem is not urgent then you may have to book for another day.
Our nursing team continue to see patients when this is felt to be clinically necessary. Any patients seen by them will be screened for coronavirus symptoms prior to coming to the surgery. Patients who are free of coronavirus symptoms will be asked to wait in the car park for a member of the nursing team. You will be asked for your car registration number so we can identify you in the car park.
We will continue to monitor and adapt our appointment system for both GPs and nurses as the current situation evolves.
