I would rather have a face-to-face appointment than a telephone appointment.
Both face to face & telephone appointments are available to prebook. All prebookable appointments can be booked online or by phone; please book online where possible.
I would prefer to always speak to , or see, the same GP
For ongoing conditions it is helpful to have continuity with the same clinician. Please prebook an appointment for ongoing matters & state your preferred GP when booking. In you are booking online & your preferred GP is not showing, this is because all their prebookable appointments are already booked. See How far ahead can I book? above.
In the Same Day Service, the GPs have a rota for running the same day service. If you need to be seen, then that GP will book you a same day face to face appointment with another GP.
How do I book online?
If you are already registered with our online service, for example to order your repeat medication, then simply log in as usual and follow the prompts to Appointments.
If you are not yet registered for our online service then please speak to any member of our reception team who will be happy to help. You will also be able to cancel appointments, & order repeat medications online.
What about Nurse and Healthcare Assistant appointments?
All nurse appointments can be booked via the Patient Support team. A selection of appointments can also be booked online or via the NHS App. Each nurse & HCA can carry out a slightly different range of duties, acccording to what training they have had - so be take extra care to book your appointment with the right nurse/HCA. Thank-you.

Our guide makes it clear what usually happens in an appointment. Doctors & nurses are trained to follow the 3 main steps. If you know what they are trying to do, it can help the conversation work better for everyone.
These steps may not seem new or surprising to you, but they may help you get the most from your appointment.
We hope you'll try out our Guide, and give us your feedback on whether your appointment feels different. You can give your feedback to your doctor or nurse or via this website.
