How to make an Appointment:

The major demand for appointments with our surgeries is for a 'same day appointment' and this is where we have the majority of our available appointments.

For many ailments it may be more appropriate for your appointment to be with a trained Nurse Practitioner or Minor Illness nurse. For all appointments, please be prepared to give the receptionist an indication of your problem. He or she can then direct you to the most appropriate doctor or nurse.

To make an appointment please telephone early on the day that you wish to be seen on 01480 453038.

If you are unable to keep an appointment please Cancel your Appointment. Always let us know so that your appointment time can be allocated to another patient.


Pre-bookable Appointments:

As the major demand for appointments is for 'same day appointments' this is where the majority of appointments are. However, we accept that this system, for a variety of reasons, does not suit everyone.

For this reason there are a certain number of appointments that it is possible to pre-book, on most days, up to two weeks in advance and if you require to pre-book then please inform the receptionist. But please accept that once the daily quota of pre-bookable appointments have gone you will have to try for another day or telephone on the day you wish to be seen.


How to Cancel an Appointment:

If you cannot keep your appointment with the Doctor or Nurse, please Cancel your Appointment.

It is really important to let us know if you need to cancel, because it enables us to offer your appointment to someone else.


Appointments with a Nurse Practitioner:

Our surgery employs qualified Nurse Practitioners who are registered nurses who have completed additional training to either degree or masters level. As a result, they are able to assess, diagnose, treat and manage illness and disease.

Nurse Practitioners therefore offer an extensive range of Medical Services.

Dental Problems:

If you have an urgent dental problem such as toothache or a dental abscess you should see a dentist not your GP.

If you have a regular dentist you should telephone them and arrange an urgent appointment. If they are closed there should be an answerphone message with the phone number of the local dentist covering emergencies. If you have trouble getting through call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47.

Advice is available from dental advisors regarding all dental problems from the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF).
