Making an Appointment

Surgery phone lines are open from 8:00am Monday to Friday. If you need a same day appointment, please phone first thing as most of our appointments for that day are available to book from 8.00am. Naturally, the phone lines will be busy, so please bear with us. For non-urgent appointments or other routine matters, please phone after 10:00am. Most of our appointments are 10 minutes in length, so please be thoughtful of other patients waiting if you have several problems.

Why does the receptionist ask me what is wrong?

Reception staff are members of the practice team and it has been agreed by the GPs that they should ask patients for a few details of ‘why they need to be seen’. This is so that the receptionist can direct you to the most appropriate person to deal with your problem. This can be covered by the following statement.

We aim to provide you with:

  • The most appropriate medical care
  • From the most appropriate healthcare professional
  • At the most appropriate time

Receptionists are also asked to collect brief information from patients

  • To help doctors prioritise house visits and phone calls
  • To ensure that all patients receive the appropriate level of care
  • To direct patients to see the nurse or other health professional rather than a doctor where appropriate

Reception staff are bound by confidentiality rules

  • Any information given by you is treated in the strictest confidence
  • The practice takes any breach of confidentiality very seriously and will deal with it accordingly
  • You can ask to speak to a receptionist in private away from the reception counter
  • However if you feel an issue is very private and do not wish to say then we will respect your decision
