Before requesting an appointment with one of our clinicians, it may be worth looking at our self-referrals page to check if a surgery appointment is needed for the service you require.

How to Request an Appointment

You can request an appointment in the following ways:

Telephone Consultations

The doctor may be able to give telephone advice after morning surgery. Please request a telephone appointment when you contact the surgery.

Please note that the receptionist may ask what the appointment is regarding in order to help clarify whether a telephone appointment or a face to face appointment is more appropriate for you.

Attending Appointments

Please make sure that you arrive on time for the appointment as it may not be possible for the doctor to see you if you are late.

Please arrive five minutes before your appointment time to allow time to check in at reception. For evening clinics, please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time.

Patients with repeated non attendances cause significant problems for other patients and may be asked to leave the practice if warnings are not heeded.

Cancelling Appointments

If you are unable to keep an appointment please let us know as soon as possible – this may enable someone else to be seen.
