General Information

Although you are registered with a specific doctor, you are free to consult any doctor. Please try however, to see the same doctor for any one condition as it helps the doctor get to know you and your condition.

We aim to see you for problems that aren't emergencies within two working days. If you request a named doctor, we aim to offer you an appointment within one week, although please be aware that if a doctor is absent due to, for example, annual leave, then the wait may be longer.

The practice nurses also have an appointment system. You can arrange an appointment with a nurse up to six weeks in advance.

We aim to treat you promptly. Please help us to do this by telling us in good time if you cannot keep your appointment and by arriving on time for appointments. If you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment you may be asked to re-book your appointment.

If you need an interpreter, please tell the receptionist when you book your appointment.
