Accessing GP services
All GP practices have been, and continue to be, open – caring for our patients, but in a different way. Read our information about what you need to do if you think you need a GP appointment.
- When you contact us for a GP appointment, our receptionists will ask you for a brief reason for the appointment to ensure your problem is dealt with the most appropriate member of our team. Current GP appointment offerings are as follows:
- Same day telephone triage appointments can be booked from 8am Monday-Friday
- Pre-bookable telephone triage appointments can be booked in advance at any time
- Face to face appointments can be booked for certain conditions which will require a face to face examination
- Practice Nurse and HCA appointments are available to book at any time
Please note that we are unable to accept prescription requests over the phone due to the high volume of calls.
To order your repeat prescriptions please choose one of the following options allowing 2 working days for completion:
