Same Day Appointments (Open Access)
Open access operates in the mornings only. Patients presenting before 10.00am will be given an appointment for that morning. Whilst we will always endeavour to book your appointment with the GP of your choice it might not always be possible, and if this were to be the case an explanation will be given.
Non-attendance is an increasing problem. If for any reason you are unable to attend a pre-booked appointment please ensure that you cancel it so the appointment can be offered to another patient, hence reducing waiting times. Persistent defaulters may risk having their registration terminated with this practice.
Home visits are at the discretion of the doctor. Please do not ask your doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to come to the surgery. Where possible please telephone requests for home visits before 10.00am. Further information about symptoms may be asked for by the receptionist to enable the doctor to determine the priority and timing of the visit.
If you need to speak to a doctor but are unable to attend the surgery you can book a telephone consultation with a doctor. Please contact the reception for details
