Please note that appointment slots are for 10 minutes duration only to allow us to monitor and cope with the demand for patient consultations. If you have more than one problem to discuss, it is advisable to request a double appointment which provides a 20 minute consultation period.
If your appointment is for a specific reason e.g. cervical smear test, contraceptive cap or coil fitting, asthma or diabetes check, ear syringing or blood test, please advise reception when making your appointment as differing lengths of time and advanced preparation may be required.
Please note that we are only able to treat one patient per appointment slot. If you have other family members who accompany you that require a consultation, please advise reception when making your appointment.
Many valuable surgery and hospital appointments are wasted by patients who do not cancel any unwanted appointments resulting in the waste of a professional person's time and means that another needy patient will have to wait longer. For this reason we ask that you contact us if you no longer require your appointment.
Due to the seriousness of this challenging issue patients who DNA (do not attend) their appointment on 3 occasions may be subject to removal from the practice register.
You can cancel your appointment as follows:
- Call the Surgery on 01924 334451 and select option 2
