If you are not able to attend for surgery or you wish to change it to a more convenient time, please tell us as soon as possible so we can give your appointment to another patient.
You can change or cancel your operation date by calling the service where you are being treated – you will find contact details either on your appointment letter.
To help us deal with your request as quickly as possible, please ensure that you provide the following information:
• Your full name
• Your NHS number or date of birth
• A contact telephone number or email address
• The date your surgery is booked for
If you cannot attend and do not notify us in advance, you might not be automatically issued with a new appointment and could have to return to your GP to make a new appointment with us. Please see our patient access, booking and choice policy for more information.
Information regarding your appointment
Reclaiming travel costs
Please leave plenty of time to find a parking space as the car parks are busy.
- After visiting a toilet.
- After changing nappies.
You should also use alcohol gel dispensers where available.
Teaching and training
Staff will ask you beforehand if you would mind students being present. Although we would appreciate your agreement, we do realise that you may wish to talk with the doctor/nurse privately. We will always respect your wishes and whatever you decide will not affect your treatment in any way.
What will I need to bring?
What facilities are available?
What will happen when I arrive?
We would ask you to be patient as appointments vary. Patients are seen in the order of their appointment time. Sometimes it appears patients are seen ‘out of turn’ but this is normally because they are seeing a different clinician. A member of staff will call your name. You may have your weight, height and blood pressure checked and may need to provide a urine or blood sample. It may be necessary to carry out further tests on the day of the appointment so please allow time for this when planning your visit.
At the end of your visit an appointment sheet will be given to you to hand in at the reception desk. It is important that you do not forget to arrange your next appointment before you leave. If you require an ambulance please let the receptionist know.
