GP and nurse Appointments
All consultations are by appointment only. We have a range of clinicians and always endeavour to fit you in at a convenient time, with the clinician best suited to treat you. The receptionist may ask specific questions to signpost you to the correct clinician. If you are local and are available during the day we prefer to fit you in during the mornings. This allows us to offer those people who work or those with school age children to come in the afternoons. We offer a mix of "on the day" appointments and "pre-bookable" appointments. On the day appointments are normally reserved for those who have an urgent problem.
Please help us by cancelling appointments you no longer need or are unable to attend.
Have you signed up to our SMS Text Messaging Service? This service will send you a text message a day before your appointment as a reminder. When you next visit the surgery please speak to a member of staff.
Are you able to access our Online System? You can book and cancel appointments 24/7 and also order your repeat medication. Please visit the surgery with Photographic ID to be issued with your username and password.
At times, our receptionists may ask questions regarding the nature of your problem in order to assess who would be most appropriate to see you and meet your needs.
Nurse Consultant is able to deal with many acute problems including sore throats, eye/ear infections, skin problems, chest infections, urine infections and most women's health issues. This list is not exhaustive - please check with reception if the Nurse Consultant can help.
Specialist Practice Nurse deals mainly with chronic disease management and some minor ailments
Practice Nurse is available for dressings, smears, vaccinations, health checks and asthma reviews.
All consultations are confidential but it helps if you could let the receptionist know if you are booking an appointment for a cervical smear, vaccination or other procedure. This allows us to ensure you are offered an appointment of appropriate length and are adequately prepared to meet your needs.
