Please Help Us to Help You
Nurses appointments are available but the receptionist may well ask for a brief idea of what the problem is. This is to allocate you with the appropriate time you need. ie: cytology screening, contraception, injections etc.
You may consult any doctor within the practice, however, it may not always be possible to see the same doctor who knows your problem.
Surgery appointments are normally for ten minutes but if you feel you need to discuss something at greater length, longer appointments can be made available; please inform reception.
An appointment is for one person only. The GP will not treat any other person who accompanies you.
