Appointments

Make an appointment at the practice

When making an appointment the receptionist will ask you for the reason for the appointment. This is at the request of the doctors so that we can ensure we book you in with the most appropriate clinician and as soon as possible.

We always try to accommodate patients’ requests for a particular doctor or nurse. If this is not possible patients are informed of the reason at the time of making the appointment.

Our senior nurse is qualified to prescribe when required, and she can help with ailments such as Sore Throat, Coughs, Cold, Chest Infection, Urinary Tract Infection, Fever, Abdominal pain, Diarrhoea, Skin disorders, Minor Injuries, Earache and Bites/stings.

Cancelling an appointment

It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient.

If you fail to notify the practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.

You can also text to cancel your appointment.

Urgent appointments

At the practice, 70% of our appointments are reserved as urgent, on-the-day appointments. To book an on-the-day appointment you need to ring the practice on 0115 896 5002 from 8.00AM and book in your appointment with the reception.

If you want to make a non-urgent appointment, or are ringing to get the results of a blood test, we advise to ring after 11am. This is to help ensure our phonelines do not get too busy, allowing us to answer calls quicker and manage appointments efficiently.

Home Visits

If you are too ill to come to the surgery or are house bound please telephone before 11:00 (except in an emergency) so that the doctors can plan their visits. The doctor may ring you back to discuss your symptoms before visiting. Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Home visits usually take place between 12:00 and 15:00.

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.

Chaperones

If you feel you would like a chaperone present at your consultation please inform your doctor or nurse who will be more than happy to help you.
