Booking Your Appointment Online
We are making it easier for you to book appointments by offering more of our appointments to you online. When booking an appointment, we ask that you give us a very brief description of what you are booking for so we can ensure that you are seeing the right person in the right appointment.
We have many different types of appointment that have their own specifications.
For example, a Travel Telephone appointment is a 10 minute appointment with a Practice Nurse who has been specially trained in travel vaccinations. A Routine Doctor's appointment cannot be used to discuss travel vaccinations, as GPs do not receive the same training.
It is important that you choose an appointment that is right for your needs. If you are uncertain, please call the practice and speak to a Receptionist.
Please book 1 appointment per problem. If you list multiple problems, the clinician may not be able to go through them all properly and you will be asked to book a second appointment.
At present, you can only book 1 future appointment at a time. There has been an issue with some patients booking 'just in case' appointments that they do not use, which means few appointments available.
Please see below for a full list of the appointments we offer online, and what you need to know before booking. We will be expanding the types of appointments we offer over the coming months.

No minor operations can be booked into these appointments. Minor operations require a second appointment booked at the same time with the healthcare assistant who will be assisting the doctor.
Phlebotomist blood test (must have form)
A blood sample will be taken.
You must have been told to book a blood test and had a blood form created. This is the request made to the laboratory to process your blood test.
10 minute appointment with a Practice Nurse who has been specially trained in travel vaccinations.
When booking, please put a comment listing the country (or countries) you are visiting so that the nurse is prepared.
One appointment per person. If a family is traveling, you will need to book multiple Travel Telephone appointments as the nurse will need to check each patient's record and input the information. It is best to try to book a parent in the first appointment and a child in the next.
You can have your INR, blood test and B12 injections in these appointments, only.
You must have a blood form for blood tests, the same as for seeing a Phlebotomist.
