Appointments

Before requesting an appointment, please remember that many issues can be sorted without needing an appointment. If an appointment is appropriate we can arrange face-to-face, telephone or video consultations with a doctor, nurse or other health professional.

We kindly request that all patients use our online consultation (eConsult) service if they are able to. Using our online services first means that you're more likely to get the best help sooner than if you telephone or visit the practice. It also gives the doctor/nurse useful information that can help provide a better assessment of your needs and safer treatment for you. If you need to see or speak to a doctor/nurse, we will respond with arrangements for this by the end of the next working day (usually much quicker).

Using our online services also means that our telephone lines and appointments are used more efficiently for those who really need to see or speak to us.

For non-urgent issues, please follow the guidelines below and choose the right service, which can help you without any appointment. This will help us being more efficient and making an appointment available to you when you need it the most.

Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice, over the counter medicines and their use, to effectively and safely manage a range of minor health concerns. They can also help you to decide whether you'll need to see a doctor. You don't need an appointment and you won't even be asked to make a purchase. Every pharmacy also has a private consultation area for you to talk about your symptoms in private if you prefer.

Why does the receptionist need to ask what’s wrong with me?

Our reception team will do their best to ensure you get the help you need by asking what the problem is. They will work with the doctor/nurse to prioritise your problem and arrange the most appropriate appointment for you, ensuring you get the best possible care in the most efficient way. To do this, they need to know a little bit about what your problem is.
