HOW TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
When you contact the Health Centre for make an appointment, the receptionist will ask for your name and offer you the first available appointment with a GP. If you feel that you need to see a doctor urgently, please explain the reason why. The receptionist may be able to offer you an urgent appointment or she may ask the nurse or the doctor to ring you (see Urgent Appointments below) to assess your clinical need, offer advice and reassurance and make an appropriate appointment for you to see one of the healthcare team.
A routine appointment with a Doctor or Nurse is 10 minutes. For this reason we would ask that you limit your consultation with the doctor or nurse to one health problem per consultation.
If you consider your medical problem is urgent and cannot wait for the next free appointment time, then your request will be dealt with the same day. If the Receptionist cannot offer you an urgent appointment, the Practice Nurse or one of the Doctors will contact you to help decide on the most appropriate and timely clinical response for your health needs.
