If you do not need a face-to-face consultation with a GP, you can book a telephone consultation. Patients wishing to speak with a GP or a member of the Nursing Team can be allocated an appointment within their normal surgery. The GP or Nurse will ring you as near to the allocated time as possible on the telephone number given at the time of making the appointment, but please bear in mind that clinicians' surgeries do run late for various reasons and therefore may not be able to ring at the exact time of the appointment. Please be aware that the Clinician will only try to make contact once. If you miss the call, you will need to make another appointment.
