Problems booking online appointments?
Booking an appointment with the Doctor
Please note, GP appointments are 10 minutes long and doctors see patients every 5 - 10 minutes all day. Please be mindful of this as you may need to prioritise one or two problems in your consultation. Dealing with multiple problems will cause doctors to run late.
During this particularly pressurized time we ask patients to be aware of this and bear with us when we are especially busy. Please also bear in mind that 8:30 is not necessarily the first appointment of the day - doctors sometimes see patients before this time at their own discretion, which are extra appointments and may cause them to run late even first thing in the morning. Many thanks.
