Help us to help you

Please let us know if you cannot keep an appointment so that it can be offered to someone else.

Missed appointments, or unreasonable requests for urgent appointments and home visits, make it difficult for us to provide a good service to all our patients.

In order to maintain a good service to our patients, if you do not attend 3 or more appointments at this surgery, without informing us that you wish to cancel your appointment, we reserve the right to cancel your registration.

We would always write to you to inform you of this.

Role of Reception

Our receptionists are usually the first point of contact and are here to help you. They have a lot of information to hand and in most cases will be able to help with your enquiry, ensuring you see the most appropriate clinician. Nonetheless, it is your right to request to talk only to the doctor. Anything that is discussed with the receptionists or any other member of the team is treated in strict confidence. You have a right to be treated courteously, and our receptionists also have a right to be treated courteously by you. Please respect the privacy of other patients by standing well back from the reception desk until your turn.

If you need urgent medical advice during surgery hours, please phone the surgery on 01522 543943. Please be prepared to give some information to the receptionist. For urgent medical conditions outside surgery hours call 111 the NHS non-emergency number. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Why might it be difficult to get an appointment

The surgery is particularly busy on Mondays and Tuesdays, especially during the winter months. If your appointment is not urgent, you could try to book a pre bookable appointment on a less busy day. These can also be booked online. Please let us know as soon as possible if you can’t attend an appointment

Please call reception to arrange an appointment.

Same day appointments

We are a busy practice, and providing some same day appointments makes it easier for you to see a doctor quickly. Please phone the surgery at 8.00am for a same day appointment or use the online facility.
