Each appointment slot is allocated a time of up to 10 minutes.
Please plan ahead for your appointment to make sure you cover everything you want to discuss.
Patients should be aware that if you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, it is likely that the clinician you are booked in with will not be able to see you due to other patients being booked in after you.
Medical problems can often take longer than the time allocated for one appointment. At times, therefore, your Doctor or Nurse maybe running late (If so, it is because a problem has required more time than usual to be dealt with properly. We would ask for your patience on occasions such as this.
Urgent Same Day Appointments
Urgent appointments for those patients who feel they need to be seen the same day due to an urgent clinical need, will be subject to telephone triage by the duty doctor. Please be aware that you may not automatically be offered an appointment. Where appropriate, advice may be offered over the phone.
