Doctors’ Appointments

We operate a ‘telephone call-back’ appointment system, whereby the doctors organise their own appointments. The aim is to make sure that those who most need to see a doctor or nurse are given priority.

Instead of booking an appointment with a doctor, patients request a telephone call-back. When the doctor phones back, you will discuss your reasons for wanting an appointment and decide jointly on the best course of action.

If the doctor feels you need to be seen face to face, they will book the appointment for you.

It could be that the issue can be dealt with over the phone, saving a trip into the surgery. For example, a query about medication or blood results. Alternatively, you may book an appointment with a nurse practitioner, nurse or healthcare assistant.

When you request a call back, the receptionist will ask you to explain briefly why you are contacting the surgery. This will help the doctors to prioritise their calls.

Telephone call backs can be requested using the online booking system if you wish.

Please note, if you book a morning slot you will be called at some point during the morning, not necessarily at the time specified on screen, likewise for the afternoon.

They can also be booked in advance with your preferred doctor.

Nurse and blood test appointments can be booked online, including appointments with a nurse practitioner for minor illnesses.
