Urgent Telephone Triage

  • There are appointments on each working day available for patients requiring urgent access to clinical advice and treatment; these will be with either a GP, Advanced Nurse Practitioner or another clinician. Please see more information about the additional roles within our Practice.
  • You will be asked by the receptionist for brief details of the reasons for the appointment and advised accordingly; this is to ensure that these appointments are used appropriately for urgent problems. A Duty Doctor or a Care Coordinator support the reception team.

Face to Face appointment with a GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner

  • Face to Face appointments can be booked at the Surgery or at a local health centre after triage of telephone or Accurx query, if deemed necessary.
 

Home visits

Calls to our number are charged at the local rate if using a BT landline.
We ask that patients check with their provider if using another network as call costs can vary and may cost considerably more from a mobile phone.

Doctor preference: Patients have the right to choose which GP they see however we are unable to guarantee that a particular GP will be available when required and if not we will endeavour to provide a suitable appointment with another GP.

All registered patients can request an appointment with a GP or a nurse irrespective of when they last attended the practice. The practice regrets that we do not offer a walk-in service and advise patients to contact the practice before attending. To book an appointment please call 020 8299 1234 or call in to make an appointment.

Appointments for GPs and nurses last 10 minutes. Double appointments are available on request if you have more than one concern. Please specify it to the receptionist, if you book an urgent appointment or send an Accurx enquiry.
