If you require advice from the doctor please telephone the surgery and request a telephone consultation. You will then be given the first available telephone appointment.
There are 3 part-time receptionists who work in the practice. Their job is to ease the flow of patient consultations with doctors so that the doctor can see as many patients as possible within the working day.
It would be helpful if you can give the receptionist as much information as possible if requesting urgent appointments or home visits to enable the doctor to plan his work load appropriately.
