Make an appointment

How to make an appointment with a GP and what to do when you arrive.

On

Overview

From 19 July 2021 onwards, our Covid-19 safety measures remain in place as outlined below. We’ll still be limiting face-to-face contact wherever possible to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

All GP appointments will now be via telephone with the potential of becoming a video call or face-to face-appointment, if appropriate.

If you need to see a clinician, you can use our online triage service below or call us on +44 114 222 2100

If your appointment is non-COVID related, you’ll be given a ‘cold patient’ face-to-face appointment.

Please don’t come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.

If you suspect you have coronavirus and need further advice, please call 111 or seek advice via NHS 111 online.

Please don’t come to the surgery if you have a cough, fever or shortness of breath. Instead, access healthcare via NHS 111 Online.

Pharmacy referrals 

We're participating in a new approach to improve access to GP appointments. The aim is to direct you to the most appropriate healthcare professional, which may be a GP or a pharmacist. 

If your symptoms could be resolved by a booked consultation with the pharmacist instead of the GP, you'll be given a same-day referral to a pharmacy of your choice. They're highly trained and skilled clinicians experienced in treating minor illnesses.

This will help us to free up GP appointments for people with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, by the right healthcare professional.

We'll be listening to your comments and feedback about using this new service.
