To ensure we are able to work efficiently and effectively patients must complete and online consultation (PATCHS) if they wish to have an appointment with a doctor or nurse. Online consultation (PATCHS) means you do not need to phone. This ensures the right person receives your request and is able to resolve it quickly.

We also offer urgent same day appointments for medically urgent matters.

To ensure that we are meeting our patients medical needs but at the same time ensuring that we are keeping our patients, staff and the community as a whole safe, we are only booking telephone triage appointments with the GP. If necessary they can arrange a video consultation or invite you in to be seen face-to-face.

We also offer self-help and other support through PATCHS.

For non-urgent issues, please follow the guidelines below and choose the right service, which can help you without any appointment. This will help us being more efficient and making an appointment available to you when you need it the most.

Why does the receptionist need to ask what’s wrong with me?

Our reception staff are important members of the practice team and it has been agreed they should ask patients ‘why they need to be seen’.

We have trained our reception staff to ask certain questions to help make sure you receive the most appropriate medical care from the most appropriate health professional at the most appropriate time.
