Appointments

Booking an Appointment

You can either book an appointment by coming into the surgery and seeing the receptionist, or you can telephone 01634-406607.

You can also book appointments online, but initially you will need to come to the Surgery in person with some photographic ID to register for this service. 

We strongly encourage you to do this so as to avoid the telephone bottleneck in the morning for appointments.

If there are no appointments available, the receptionist may need to obtain clinical information from you to pass to the doctor, so that the doctor can decide how best to deal with your request. 


Chaperones

There are occasions when patients need to be examined by a clinician (a doctor, nurse, midwife, or health care assistant) that may involve intimate examinations.

This practice is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible, and if you wish a chaperone to be present during your examination please do not hesitate to ask the clinician or receptionist for a chaperone.

It may not be possible for such a chaperone to be provided immediately and you may have to return for the examination to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.

Trust is important in the relationship between clinician and patient and we would, at all times, wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone, should you require it.
