Appointments for Post Natal examinations, Child six week development checks, Ante Natal examinations, Diabetic Checks and cervical smears should NOT be booked on-line. These consultations require longer appointments which need to be booked through a receptionist.


Extended hours - appointments offered between 6.30-8pm on Thursdays

Urgent (on-the-day) GP appointments are reserved for symptoms or conditions that are likely to worsen if you do not get treatment during that day and the GPs have given a check-list of relevant symptoms to the Receptionists for them to look out for. Obviously, if you feel you must be seen the same day, even if you do not have any of the conditions on the GP list, your request will be passed to the doctor on duty that day and he/she will triage your request and decide how best to meet your needs. All on-the-day requests for an appointment for a child will be passed to the duty doctor.

Sometimes, if you have requested an urgent, on-the-day GP appointment, you may be asked to come to the surgery at the end of the day (at a specific time) and asked to wait until the next available GP can see you.

Chaperone

Both female and male patients may ask for a chaperone at any time when they are consulting our doctors, nurses and clinical staff. In the same way our doctors, nurses and clinical staff may ask for another member of staff to be present as a chaperone during a consultation.
