Make An Appointment

Appointments can be made in person or by telephone on 01654 713000. If you require an emergency appointment or home visit you will receive a call from our Triage Nurse, who will take your symptoms. The Triage Nurse will provide advice on minor illnesses and arrange an appropriate appointment for you. Calls in the morning may take longer to answer and deal with, as this is one of our busiest times.

If you cannot keep an appointment, please inform us as soon as possible as this will allow others to be seen sooner.

Appointment System

We have up to 10 different types of appointments each day.

  1. Triage Appointments – these are initially by telephone by the Triage nurse to assess the patient’s symptoms for emergency appointments and home visits.
  2. On the day appointments are for urgent must be seen conditions. Each doctor has a certain amount of these appointments each day. These appointments can be booked from 8.00am onwards on the day.
  3. Emergency appointments with the Doctor on-call that day. These will be arranged via the Triage Nurse.
  4. Daily GP routine appointments. These appointments allow you to see the doctor of your choice for routine conditions, or if your doctor has recommended that you see him/her. Routine appointments may be made from two to up to four weeks in advance, which will enable us to offer you an appointment at a time more suitable to your requirements.
