How to request GP appointments

To request an appointment:

When you get in touch, we’ll ask what you need help with.

We will use the information you give us to choose the most suitable doctor, nurse or health professional to help you.

Access the GP online appointment system

Manage your appointments via our online service: Due to the complexities of nurse clinics and the different lengths of time required for consultations, we are not able to offer nurse appointments online. Please do not book a routine 10 minute GP appointment for medical examindations such as those required for employment, but contact our receptionist who will make a suitable appointment.
