Guide to Making Appointments
Appointments are available to book up to 4 weeks in advance.
Doctors' appointments are made up of pre-bookable appointments, (appointments can be a face-to-face consultation at the surgery or a telephone consultation) and same day appointments. There are also, of course, some emergency slots.
Surgeries generally run from 8.30am to 12.30pm, then 2pm to 6pm. The surgery is open from 8am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday. In addition, there are some extended hours appointments available on Thursday mornings 7am to 8am with the nurse or doctor and Monday evenings, 6.30pm to 7.30pm with the doctor.
For the nurse appointments, the majority of these are pre-bookable, butthere are usually also a few available on-the-day.
On a normal working weekday there is a duty doctor whose appointments are blocked i.e. not pre-bookable until 8am that day. For other doctors, their slots are a mixture of those which have already been pre-booked (these are made available to book at various intervals - 4weeks, 2 weeks,1 week and 2 days prior to the appointment date), and those which are released on the day.
