Appointments can be made by calling 01346 532215 between Monday and Friday from 08:00 in the morning to 18:00 at night.
If patients are making appointments with the nurse then the receptionist will ask for some details of the problem so that she can inform the nurse (in case anything needs set up for you).
Patients will be informed on their arrival if any surgeries are running late.
The practice has available emergency appointments during the day. These are for patients with urgent problems that cannot wait until the following day (e.g. chest pain, bad accident or injury). Each situation is assessed prior to the patient been given the appointment. The reception staff will ask the patients for the reason of the emergency. We ask that patients respect the emergency appointments for urgent problems only.
Telephone advice is available from all doctors. Please ask the receptionist about these when you contact the surgery. These are 5 minute appointments that can be used by patients who wish to speak to a GP instead of coming along to the surgery.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
