To Speak To Your Doctor
We try not to interrupt consultations as it can be upsetting for both GP and patients. If you need to speak to the doctor, please leave a message and a doctor will return your call.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
Delays At The Surgery
We try to keep to schedule, but unfortunately some problems take longer than others; we ask you to please be patient. To reduce waiting times please book extra time for smears, travel vaccines, full medicals for work, college or insurance companies.
If you have a number of issues to be dealt with, we may not be able to deal with everything in a 15-minute consultation, so a follow-up appointment may be necessary.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
