Same Day Appointments

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 mintues 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.
