A New Appointment System – Starting Monday 13th November 2017

Our Aim

Our aim is to make more appointments available in advance and reduce the waiting time for routine appointments, giving our patients more flexibility to see the clinician of choice (where possible) with a variety of times.

The new system will allow patients with urgent medical conditions to be treated the same day.


What appointments available to you?

  • Advanced appointments 28, 14, 7 and 3 days
  • Telephone triage
  • Urgent on the day
  • Telephone calls for test results
  • Online bookings
  • Hub Appointment


What if you have a new onset illness?

The majority of new onset illnesses or conditions do not need to be seen on the same day, particularly in adult patients under 70 without pre-existing medical conditions

Our receptionist will help guide you by asking a few questions in order to put you in with the correct clinician, this could mean consulting your pharmacist, an appointment in 3 days’ time, telephone triage or same day if your condition is urgent.
