Same Day Appointments

The practice operates an appointment system which is designed to help patients obtain an appointment on the day that they phone.

We have qualified nurse practitioners available every day to deal with minor illnesses. When you ring for an appointment with the doctor, the receptionist will ask you if it is something the nurse practitioner can deal with such as:

  • Sore throats, coughs, skin infections, rashes, eczema and dermatitis, sinusitis, sprains & strains, headaches, earache, constipation, diarrhoea & vomiting, sore eyes, hay fever, cystitis, fevers, period.

You can also book a same day appointment online. If you wish to use the online appointment booking, please ring 01525 631390 or ask the receptionist for your username and password.

Pre-book Appointments

For those patients wishing to pre-book an appointment or would like to see a specific GP, a percentage of our appointments are available to book up to a month in advance with all the GPs.
To make an appointment please ring 01525 631391.

We would like to ask our patients to prioritise only one problem to be discussed at each appointment, as this will help the Practitioner run to time.

Services provided by our Practice Nurses

Chaperones are available if needed and clinically appropriate.

If you cannot keep your appointments please let our reception know, either by phoning the surgery, or cancelling your appointment online so someone else can have your appointment.

Please try to be punctual for your appointment, if you arrive more than 10 minutes late you will be asked to re-book, this is to avoid further delays to other patients.

We would like to ask our patients to prioritise only one or two problems to be discussed at each appointment. As this will help the Practitioner to run on time. We apologise that sometimes the GPs/Nurses run late due to another patient needing more time.

How to make the most of your appointment

10 things to ask myself before I see the doctor:

  1. What do I want to get from this visit?
  2. What do I need to say to the doctor?
  3. What do I need to know from the doctor?
  4. What is my priority for this visit?
  5. What am I already doing to help myself?
  6. How am I feeling today?
  7. How have I felt since the last visit, and what difficulties have I had?
  8. What have I achieved since the last visit?  What is my goal?
  9. What else is happening in my life to affect my health?
  10. Is there something I may find it difficult to talk about today?

We would like to ask our patients to prioritise only one or two problems to be discussed at each appointment.
If you feel that 10 minutes might not be sufficient time, please ask our receptionists, who would be happy to arrange a double appointment.
