How To See A Doctor

How To See A Doctor 

Consultations are made by appointment either in person or by telephoning 421211 between 8.00am and 6.00pm. You can make a routine appointment with any doctor or nurse of your choice.

The practice operates a triage system for patients looking for advice or those wishing to leave a message for a GP or nurse. The receptionists record details of the request and a GP or practice nurse triages the information. You may be asked to attend the surgery to see a GP. This may not be the GP you normally see, but whichever is available. A telephone consultation may be offered. Please remember that requests for sick lines and insurance certificates are important but are not medical emergencies. They can be dealt with at the next available appointment.

In accordance with the Trust’s Interpretation & Supported Communication Services policy, if you require an interpreter signer or lip reader to be present at your consultation, then please let the reception staff know when you book an appointment so that the necessary arrangements can be made.
