Appointments & Self Referrals
How To Book An Appointment
The easiest way of contacting your GP or arranging an appointment is by using our online/eConsult service. This is a comprehensive and safe way of ensuring you see the best clinician for your problem. Your eConsult will be reviewed by a clinician before the end of the following working day.
You can also book appointments online through SystmOnline.
If you are unable to use online/eConsult or book an appointment online, you can also book appointments via the telephone. Currently all GP appointments are telephone appointments only. If the doctor needs to see you in person they will arrange this for you.
Home visits are only available for people who are completely house bound.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:30am if you require a home visit. Your request will be passed onto a clinician, in most cases they will ring you so it is really important we have your correct telephone number and that you stay by your phone. The clinician will ring and discuss your concerns and it will be their decision whether or not a visit is appropriate.
There is an on-call team of doctors at the surgery each day for emergency problems. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the practice. Please contact the surgery before 10:30am if you have significant concerns about your health so we can arrange the most appropriate support for you.
