Important Information about booking appointments on-line
The practice is now happy to provide you with the ability to book certain appointments on-line.
Doctor appointments are telephone consultation appointments, ie:- the GP will ring you back on the day you have requested. It is extremely important to leave a contact number when booking this.
When booking your telephone consultation appointment on line please remember to add your contact telephone number. Your contact number should be added where you see the section "Reason-optional". It is also helpful for the doctor if you give a brief reason for the telephone consultation appointment.
We do offer pre-bookable doctor appointments for those patients who work and find it difficult to attend during a normal working day. These appointments are called extended hours appointments and can be directly booked by patients on-line (ie:- they are face to face bookable appointments).
Nurse appointments are restricted to the following treatments:- dressings, removal stitches, ear syringing, ecg’s, blood pressure check, cervical smears. Other nursing procedures may need a certain specialist nurse so please telephone in the usual way for other nurse appointments.
Phlebotomy appointments are restricted to blood tests only (that have been requested by the doctor/nurse or that are on-going monitoring tests)
The Practice is pleased to provide patients with access to its Clinical System via a Secure Web Interface.
To use Systm Online you will need a Practice ID number and Access ID number which is obtained from the practice, and, in conjunction with a password, will be unique to you.
