MORE INFORMATION ON APPOINTMENTS
Please be punctual for your appointment or you may lose it. If you are late you may be asked to wait until the end of the session as other patients will not be kept waiting as a result of your delay.
Non attendance of appointments waste our time and inconvenience to other patients.
Please cancel your appointment well in advance if you cannot keep it so it can be offered to another patient.
Persistent non-attenders will be removed from the practice list.
If you feel you need to be seen urgently, speak to the doctor on telephone triage. However if it is after triage times please telephone the surgery and speak to a receptionist.
You will be seen as an extra which means you may have to wait and if the doctor seeing you feels that it is not urgent s/he will ask you to make an appointment.
