GP Appointments and Consultations
Appointments with your GP
If you are unwell and need medical attention or if you have been told by your GP that you need to see them again, you should make an appointment either by telephone or in person. Even if your usual doctor is not available, you can be seen by the Duty Doctor.
We have a Duty Doctor rostered each day to deal with patients who have an URGENT need of medical attention or advice.
Housecalls by Doctors
Housecalls are reserved for unwell elderly or very unwell patients who are housebound and unable to visit our surgery. Please call the surgery before 11am and leave details with our admin team. A GP will call you back to discuss your request and if necessary will arrange to make a housecall. In normal circumstances, housecalls are usually carried out at lunchtime.
Urgent medical attention
If you are very unwell and need urgent medical attention today, please give the requested information to our admin team who will ensure an appropriate appointment or telephone call can be organised. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, you are strongly advised to call 112 or 999 and ask for an ambulance.
Is a doctor’s appointment necessary?
We would ask that you please do not make an appointment with your GP for the following reasons;
To renew a prescription. You can download a repeat prescription form HERE
To get a form signed/filled out
To tell them about a recent hospital or consultant visit
Our admin team can help with all of these issues. If you are unsure whether to make an appointment or not, please ask one of the admin team. It can help save you and your GP some valuable time.
