What type of appointment do I need
If your symptoms are life threatening please call the emergency services on 999. GP Practices do not deal with emergency cases
These appointments are for any health need you may have for which you need to see a doctor and you may have had symptoms for a longer period of time. All our routine appointments can be booked up to 6 weeks in advance.
An Urgent Appointment is for patients with symptoms that are likely to worsen if they are not treated the same day and if the symptoms prevent you from functioning normally and are acute e.g. infections, ear pain etc..
This type of appointment is rarely requested and is for housebound or palliative patients who are unable to attend the surgery because of their medical condition(s). The Receptionist will ask you to describe your symptoms/condition so that they can be passed to the Doctor who can then assess whether a home visit is required.

Practice Nurse Appointments
We have two practice nurses offering the full range of chronic disease management, health promotion, travel vaccinations and well person services.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer the appointment to another patient. Patients who do not attend three appointments over 6 months (or if the patient does not attend appointments more frequently), will be written to. They will be advised that this behaviour is unacceptable and, should it continue, the patient may be removed from the list. If a patient has genuine reasons why they have been unable to attend their appointments, this will be always be considered.
