Consulting a Doctor or a Nurse

Please see “how do I make an appointment” for more information.

Please do NOT attend the surgery without an appointment, please make sure if you are seeing a GP or Nurse you have a face covering with you, Please arrive for your appointment on time and if you are suffering with any of the Covid-19 symptoms please do NOT attend.

Thank you for your co-operation in these unprecedented times.

Getting the most out of your consultation

  • For simple illnesses and requests it is often quicker and more appropriate to see the nurse practitioner rather than the GP (see “Nurse Practitioner” service).
  • For routine treatments or tests please see the practice nurse.
  • During a single consultation, the doctor or nurse can deal with the concerns of a single patient.  Should you wish to discuss complex issues, or another family member, please request a double appointment.
  • Before your consultation, it may be helpful to write a few notes on your symptoms or questions you would like to ask. This will prevent important information from being forgotten.
  • If you don’t understand what the doctor or nurse has said to you, please don’t be afraid to ask for further explanation.
  • It can sometimes help to have a relative or friend with you.
  • If you would like a chaperone please speak to the doctor or nurse.
