Types of appointments


When making an appointment, reception staff will ask you the nature of the problem and some simple questions. This is to enable them to 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 confidently offer these alternatives.

Routine appointments

Routine appointments are usually booked several weeks in advance. These appointments are best suited to follow-up continuing problems. You can usually choose which doctor or nurse you see.

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. 

Telephone appointments

Telephone appointments may be offered on busy days. A doctor will call you back and if necessary, they may advise you to come to the centre.
