Routine consultations are by appointment with the doctor of your choice by telephoning
(phone numbers for different practices).
Routine appointments are at 10 minute intervals but if you have a problem that you feel is likely to take longer please ask for a longer appointment when you contact the surgery. If you want a particular time of day or a specific doctor you may have to wait a few days
Urgent appointments can be made on the same day, although it may not always be possible to see the Doctor of your choice.
Urgent appointments are in short supply and should be reserved for genuine urgent problems that will not work
