If all the face-to-face appointments are booked, you will be offered a telephone consultation. If your problem cannot be dealt with over the phone then the clinician will make an appropriate appointment for you.
Patients may ask to see any doctor within the practice, i.e. they are not restricted to seeing the doctor that they are registered with. However, patients should appreciate that if they require an urgent appointment it may not always be possible to see their preferred doctor.
Please avoid phoning about non-urgent issues between 8.00am and 10.30 am to assist us in ensuring appointments can be made promptly.
