Appointments

Access to GP Appointments

Due to the current COVID-19 situation our appointments system has changed. We are operating under new norms and offering you as much help as we can.

You can be assessed by our Doctors by using:

Double Appointments

Our consultation time is 10 minutes; if you need longer, consider booking a double appointment. Examples include:

  • you need an interpreter
  • you have more than 1 problem 
  • you are pregnant and are booking your antenatal appointment (only to be booked with Dr Ohletz or Dr Arthur)

Interpreter:

If you require an interpreter to attend with you when you see your Doctor please notify the receptionist and this wil be arranged for you.

GP Access Hubs

If no appointments are available you will be offered an appointment or telephone consultation with one of the GP Access Hubs (see below). 

Our GP Access Hubs offer appointments seven days a week:

12:00–20:00 Monday to Friday

08:00–20:00 Weekends and Bank Holidays

Contact us to book an appointment with GP ACCESS HUBS

Home Visits

If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
