Please contact Reception to make an appointment by telephone or pop into the surgery and talk to one of our receptionists. In order to help you best our reception staff need to know whether you have an urgent or ongoing medical condition. Please give a full description of your symptoms to the receptionist so that we can help you efficiently.
Urgent Medical Condition
We have same-day appointments for you if you are urgently unwell and need to see a doctor. Normally, within an hour the doctor or nurse will telephone you back to discuss your symptoms. If you give us a mobile number check that you are in area where there is a good signal so that we can get through. You may then be asked to come to the surgery. The doctor may want to get some blood or urine tests organised before seeing you or may be able to issue you with a prescription which can be collected from the surgery. Occasionally, you will be asked to phone 999.
Appointments can be booked in advance for you if you want to make a routine appointment with a doctor or nurse. If you have a chronic disease such as diabetes or arthritis, or indeed have multiple conditions, it is better to see the same doctor or nurse, even if it means waiting a little longer. If you haven’t got a regular doctor, we can still make sure you see the same doctor or nurse if you problem in an ongoing one. This is possible, if you answer all the receptionist’s questions about your condition when you telephone to make an appointment.
