Appointments & Consultations
Appointments with a Doctor or Nurse can be made by telephone or at reception. Appointment times can vary but we aim to book you with a GP within 48hrs or with a healthcare professional within 24hrs, although this may not always be possible.
ALWAYS cancel your appointment if you no longer need it - thank you. We politely request that children are not present in consulting rooms unless the problem is regarding him/her.
Telephone consultations are now also available daily with the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner, should you feel that this is appropriate, or if you are unsure of what service you need.
Clinical appointments normally last for 10 minutes. Please ask when booking if you think your appointment will require more than a 10 minute slot. Please remember a 10 minute appointment is for 1 medical problem only, thank you.
Please note that Reception will now ONLY book you in for a blood test if it has been requested by a Clinician. When having your blood test, please ensure that you are wearing suitable clothing, i.e short sleeved shirts or tops which will roll up with ease.
Should the surgery not have capacity to offer a blood appointment to suit your needs the riverside clinic runs a walk in clinic monday to friday from 7:45am to 17:30pm
Urine samples will now ONLY be accepted at Reception for testing if they have been requested by a Clinician.
Our appointment system allows patients to book on the day, in advance up to at least six weeks ahead and we are also open for pre-booked appointments on Saturday mornings. ALWAYS cancel your appointment if you no longer require it, thank you.
The surgery now gives patients the ability to book and cancel their own appointments online, these appointments are bookable 24 hours in advanced, to do this you will need to complete a registration form. to sign up or for more infomation please visit reception.
We do not deal with dental problems here at the surgery. For help with dental problems, please see your dentist or call the NHS 111 team in an emergency.
