The practice offers different types of appointments to cater for the many different needs of our patients. We offer a limited number of slots that can be booked in advance, morning and afternoon. These are usually about four weeks ahead and can be booked as follow ups for routine reviews. We also open a bundle of slots every morning which are bookable on the day for both routine and urgent appointments. On booking an appointment the reception team will ask you the nature of your call to ensure you are booked with the most appropriate clinician. This may include Mark our Primary Care Practitioner, who deals with minor ailments. Sometimes a problem can be dealt with over the telephone and does not require a face-to-face appointment.
The GP’s can offer telephone consultations, where you can leave a message with reception with an up to date phone number and ask for the doctor to ring you back. Please be aware that this may not be on the same day if it is very busy, however you feel you need to speak to someone urgently that day, the receptionist will be able to help you.
We have a very experienced and friendly team of practice nurses, with certain specialities including diabetes, asthma, COPD, anti-coagulation. Our nurses provide a wide range of services including blood tests, dressings, ear syringing, cervical smears, ECGs, blood pressure monitoring, pill checks, diabetic reviews, travel advice and flu vaccines.
