How to book an appointment
Surgeries with the doctors and nurses are by appointment only. If you require an appointment with the doctor or nurse, please telephone the surgery on 01306 882422 between 8.00 a.m. and 6.30 p.m. If you need to be seen within 24 hours, you will be offered the first available appointment with any of our doctors. Doctor appointments may be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.
TYPES OF APPOINTMENTS
Medwyn Surgery operates an open practice policy which means you can see any doctor of your choice.
TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS - these appointment should be used if you believe that your medical problem can be resolved without seeing a doctor. They are five minute appointments and are available most dats with your preferred GP. They can be particularly useful for discusing test results or medication reviews only.
ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS - these are standard 10 minute appointments in the doctor' s morning or afternoon surgery. These appointments are pre-bookable. Have a think about what you would like to discuss with the doctor beforehand and work out what is the most important issue to be dealt with. If you have multiple problems please do not be offended if you are asked to make another appointment, as more time may be required to deal effectively with each issue.
COMMUTER APPOINTMENTS - we offer pre-bookable commuter slots on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings between 6.30pm and 8.00pm
CLINIC APPOINTMENTS - we have a number of dedicated clinics run by our nurse practitioner and practice nurses.
URGENT APPOINTMENTS - these are available every weekday with the Nurse Practitioner or one of the doctors. These appointments are intended for same day medical problems requiring urgent advice. They should not be requested to discuss routine health concerns. Unless you have a life threatening emergency always consider contacting the surgery for minor injuries or urgent medical advice rather than visiting the Accident & Emergency department.
