Cancelling your Appointment

 

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

Flu Season

We are now getting towards the end of the majority of the flu vaccinations in the practice.  Over the next few weeks the last of the at risk groups should have been in for the annual flu vaccation.  Anyone who has not yet received an appointment should phone the practice - around mid November.  NOTE - if you are housebound and normally have the district nurse visit, then they will be starting their vaccination programme shortly. 

We have over 2000 patients to vaccinate each year, so we are grateful for everyone's attendance and especially to the nurses for administering the vaccine.

Late Patients

If you are late for your appointment, the reception staff will check with the GP to see if you will still be seen, however if you are more than 10 minutes late you will have to rebook.   If you feel you must be seen, please speak to the receptionist who can update the GP.

 

Appointments

 NEW UPDATED INFORMATION

In response to patient feedback and increasing demand, we have decided to modify our system for booking appointments.  "On the day" appointments from 3rd August 2015, will only be for urgent conditions and will not necessarily be with a named doctor.  This is to ensure that patients with an urgent condition get seen promptly.  To help the triage process you may be asked to speak to our Duty Triage Doctor or Nurse when phoning for a same day appointment.

To accommodate this change we are going to increase the number of routine "book in advance" appointments (ie not booked for the same day).  The intention is that patients will not have to wait so long for a routine appointment with the doctor of their choice.

Patients will still be unable to book appointments at the desk before 8.30 am (as has been the case since July 2014)

Please note that appointments are for one person only. If you are unable to keep your appointment contact us as soon as possible.

Appointments can be booked up to 5 weeks in advance.

 

 

Extended Hours

The practice has now been offering extended hours appointments since 28th April 2008. These are either every Monday morning from 7.10am or every second Tuesday evening from 6.10pm and are also available to book up to 5 weeks in advance. 

 Note:  If you have to cancel an appointment you must do so during normal working hours - ie 8 am - 6 pm Monday to Friday - as the telephone line is not operational outwith these times.
