We have changed our appointment system in order that the most appropriate clinician can see the patients with the first contact to the surgery. We are aiming to offer the majority of our patients ‘A Same Day Appointment’. There are a number of pre-bookable appointments incorporated in each GP’s surgery , which are released in advance. These are mainly for those people who cannot ring on the day and. You may not always need to see a GP for all your health issues and sometime a GP Telephone consultation could be offered as an alternative to actually having to come up to the surgery. At the present time 100% of GP appointments are of ten-minute duration.
