How to make an Appointment:

You may book an appointment to see the doctor of your choice in advance, provided he/she is available.

Requests for appointments and other queries should be made in person at reception or via the telephone.

The appointment system has both pre-bookable and same day appointments available every day. Same day appointments will only be released at the beginning of each day.

Patients who need to be seen urgently will be seen as quickly as medically necessary, but will have to see whichever doctor is available.

Please give as much detail of your problem as you can, so that the receptionist can arrange a suitable appointment.

Please notify reception as soon as possible if you have to cancel an appointment.

Each appointment is scheduled to last 10 minutes.

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.

Advice is available from dental advisors regarding all dental problems from the British dental health foundation (BDHF). Their contact details and web site can be found by clicking here.
