How to see your Doctor
If you think you have an urgent medical problem for which you cannot wait for a routine appointment with your doctor, the receptionist will arrange for you to be seen and assessed by one of our specially trained nurses. They can meet most requirements of patients who need to be seen urgently and, if you require urgent intervention by a doctor, this will be arranged for you, or if you need to be seen routinely by your doctor, this will also be arranged for you.
This system of handling urgent requests enables the doctors to plan their appointments for their patients benefit, ensuring they have enough time for pre-booked appointments, and enables access to a GP within 48 hours.
Between 08:00-11:30 in the morning we have an Urgent Care Service where patients can sit and wait if they feel that their medical problem can’t wait for a routine GP appointment. Patients can be seen by any Clinicians working that day.
Routine appointments for patients can be booked by the receptionists, in person, or on your doctors appointment line. We feel that, wherever possible, it is best for you to see the doctor with whom you are registered, as they know you and your medical history. The practice uses a text reminder service and may also contact you via text with campaign reminders (stop smoking, flu). Please see a receptionist if you wish to opt OUT of this service.
For appointments please telephone the following number: 01664 503000
Our receptionists are available to help you between 8.00 am and 6.30 pm Monday to Friday
