Types of appointments

Due to CV19 all appointments will intially be by phone.


When making an appointment, reception staff will ask you the nature of the problem and some simple questions. This is so they can direct you to the most appropriate professional or service in our area. Receptionists do not make clinical decisions, but when a patient presents with symptoms that could be dealt with by a pharmacist, optician or a social prescribing service they will offer these alternatives.

Routine appointments

Due to the pandemic ,we have very few routine appointments available. These would usually be booked a few weeks in advance. If you are unable to book a routine appointment, you may need to ask for a same day appointment 

Same-day appointments

In some situations, you can book to see someone on the same day you call. You will need to call from 8.45 am on weekdays to ask for a same-day appointment. Getting a same-day appointment depends on the availability of the doctors and nurses.
