|In line with government guidance we will be offering telephone appointments with the most suited Clinician. Please be patient with the Reception team as they are unable to offer face to face appointments and are required to ask some questions to help process your call. If the Clinician feels that they need to see you they will invite you to the surgery to attend a face to face appointment. When attending the surgery please wear a face mask.
To make an appointment, ring Blackburn 617521 during the surgery times or or visit the surgery between 08.00am and 6.30pm. You may request to see any doctor, but we do encourage you to see the same doctor where possible. This doesn't have to be the doctor with whom you are registered.
Normally, you will be offered the earliest appointment with the doctor of your choice. If they are fully booked, we will try to offer you an earlier appointment with another doctor.
From Monday 11th April 2016 we have started offering a 'TELEPHONE CONSULTATION' option. If you think your problem can be resolved by telephone, rather that coming into surgery, you can choose to receive a call from either a GP or Nurse.
If you feel you need to be seen URGENTLY, please tell the receptionist and we will arrange to see you that day.

Cancelled appointments can be offered to other patients so please cancel as soon as possible and no later than an hour before you are due.
Many appointments are wasted by non-attenders. This is a frustrating and expensive use of your doctor's time. A record of appointments that are booked but not attended is kept. If you fail to attend twice you may be sent a letter reminding you that our resources such as the doctor's/nurse's time should not be wasted and that another failure to attend could result in you being asked to seek another GP.
Your co-operation is appreciated.
