 From 1st November 2017- Changes When Booking Appointments

In line with many GP surgeries, for ALL appointments, we will now be asking patients for further details about the nature of the problem they are coming with. Previously we have only done this for emergency/same day appointments. It is helpful for the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner to have some idea beforehand of why you are attending so they can focus their preparation, in order to make the most efficient use of time during your appointment. It also ensures that you are being seen by the most appropriate member of the team, as some problems may be dealt more effectively by other team members e.g. Practice Nurse, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, District Nurse or hospital colleagues, Paramedics or even A & E.


Our Reception team are trained in signposting and are bound by the same code of practice as all our medical and nursing staff. All matters are dealt with in the strictest of confidence. If you do not wish to disclose the nature of your appointment then you can of course decline to do so.
