Online Appointment Bookings

Great News! We are pleased to announce that patients registered at the practice are now able to book routine appointments to see a GP at the practice online from 1st September 2013.

From 1st April 2015 patients can view a Summary of their Medical Record, Medications and Allergies. Patients will need to come in to the practice and see reception.

This means that, as well as being able to book an appointment by telephone and in the practice patients also have the option to make a routine appointment online. The practice are really pleased to be able to offer this service to their patients as it provides easier access to appointment bookings. Patients are able to book routine appointments from 2 days to 2 weeks in advance.
