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 to the receptionist who may be able to offer you an urgent appointment or she can 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.
Did you know that we offer some early morning appointments for patients who are in full-time work and who might otherwise have difficulty in getting away to attend a doctor’s appointment. These appointments are available from 7am on four mornings per week. We would be grateful if patients who do not work normal business hours would respect the need to keep these appointments for patients who do.
A routine appointment with a Doctor or Nurse is 10 minutes long. For this reason we would ask that you limit your consultation with the doctor or nurse to one health problem per consultation.
