Patients can book appointments with the doctor or nurse of their choice if they wish to do so by telephoning reception during opening hours.
We allow appointments to be booked up to four weeks in advance so you can plan around family and work commitments. We will offer you a choice of which clinician you see and the time at which you see them. This is useful if you want to see the same doctor or nurse every time you visit, as we know many people do. Not every clinician is available every day. If the clinician of your choice is not available you will be offered the earliest possible alternative.
Urgent cases will have access to a healthcare professional on the same day.
You can also register for online booking which allows you to book your own appointments using our online booking systems. Please contact reception for further details.
