GP Appointments

Routine GP appointments

Routine appointments are for 10 minutes and are available with the doctor of your choice.  These are for non-urgent matters and long-term problems that your regular doctor has been managing on an on-going basis.

A selection of pre-bookable GP appointments are available to book up to 2 weeks in advance and are released on a day by day basis. For early morning appointments the following day, please phone from 2.30 p.m.

If you are aware you will need a longer period of time than 10 minutes to discuss your problem, please inform reception and they will endeavour to accommodate your request.
