Telephone Consultations & Urgent On the Day Appointments.(dial 1)
These appointments will normally be allocated after speaking to a GP. Patients must telephone the practice between 08:30 - 10:00, give relevant details to the receptionist and a GP will call you back. The GP will then decide on the best course of treatment for you. If the doctor needs to see you they will agree a suitable appointment time with you.
You will be guaranteed to speak to a GP on that day but not necessarily a GP of your choice. Please phone the surgery before coming in
If you have an EMERGENCY please make this CLEAR to the receptionist. This will enable us to deal with your emergency as quickly and efficiently as possible
Text Relay (previously known as Type Talk) is a service run by the Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID). It is a telephone relay service which enables deaf, deafblind, deafened, hard of hearing and speech impaired people to communicate with hearing people by telephone. If you are deaf you should dial 18001 followed by the full telephone number from your textphone. If the call is answered by a hearing person, a Text Relay operator is brought into the call. However, if the call is answered by another textphone user, the connection is direct with no need to involve an operator.
Our receptionists have been trained to help you in the most appropriate way, and you are asked to try and co-operate with them. On booking your appointment, you may be asked to give a few details. Please do not be offended by this, as it will help us to help you.
