How to Make and Cancel an Appointment
Book face-to-face or remote appointments with your GP, nurse or clinician at a time that suits you.
Your details and information are protected by the highest standards of online security, so all you need to worry about is what to do with the spare time you’ve earnt.
Appointments can be made in advance however they soon become booked, so please allow plenty of notice. Only book one appointment per person. If you feel you need more time with the doctor ask the receptionist for a longer appointment. You may choose to see any of the five doctors but try and avoid changes especially during the course of one illness or problem. We do try to keep appointment times but in the nature of the job there are bound to be delays - please be patient, it may be your turn next for extra time with the doctor.
If you cannot keep your appointment, please cancel in time for it can then be given to another patient.
Each surgery sets aside time for those who need to be seen on the same day. Please do not use this facility if your problem can wait for another day.
