Make an Appointment
Interpreters for patients whose first language is not English or those with a sensory or learning disability.
If you have difficulty speaking or understanding English, or have difficulty understanding due to a disability, please attend your appointment with a family member, friend or colleague who will be able to help you.
If you don't have anybody who can accompany you, please tell our Reception staff when booking your appointment and they will be able to make suitable arrangements for you. You will be allocated an appointment that is longer than the routine 10 minutes.
Our practice is a training and teaching practice. The registrars are fully qualified doctors and have a great deal of hospital experience. Registrars are attached to our practice for six to twelve months. Video recordings of consultations are used for teaching purposes.
You will be advised prior to your appointment and only if you wish will you be asked to sign for consent before being video recorded and can rest assured that all videos are erased after use.
Patients are requested, where possible, to telephone between 08:00 - 10:00 if a home visit is required that day.
We would request that, apart from the genuinely housebound, all other patients attend the surgery rather than request a home visit because of the extra time home visiting takes. On average four to five patients can be seen in surgery in the time it takes to do a single house call. In addition, the care that can be offered due to the lack of adequate lighting, examination facilities and equipment means that you may not receive as good a service as the doctor may be able to offer if you came to the surgery.
Please note that the doctor may telephone you rather than visit you if this is medically appropriate. Ultimately it is the doctors right to decide whether or not a visit is appropriate for a particular set of circumstances.
Cancellations & Reminders
Cancel an Appointment
It is important that you inform the Patient liaison team if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.
