Within limited resources our aim is to provide an appointment system that provides timely & equitable care to all of our patients. We aspire to :-
- Provide continuity of care with the same GP where possible
- Offer Pre book face to face consultations with a GP of your choice
- Offer Pre book telephone consultations with a GP of your choice
- Safely assess urgent problems by telephone on the same day.
PLEASE provide the Patient Services Team with as much information as possible so that they can help you to book the right appointment with the right person.
PLEASE NOTE: If you need urgent/same day treatment please refer to the Something Urgent tab.
