Appointments

Please telephone 01242 602307 during surgery hours to arrange an appointment. We offer a range of appointments with Doctors and Nurses, both face to face and over the telephone.  Appointments are at 10 minute intervals; this is generally enough time to consult with the GP.  If you have multiple issues you may be asked to book another appointment.

 

If you would like a chaperone to be present during consultation with a clinician, please let the clinician know. They will be happy to arrange this for you.

 

Although you will be registered with one GP you are welcome to see any GP in the practice. If you have been seeing a GP for a particular problem or a long standing medical condition it may be advisable to continue seeing the same GP for that particular problem.

 

We also offer emergency appointments on the same day, many of these will be in our Nurse Practitioner lead Acute Illness Clinic (AIC) or for more complex issues you will be seen by a Doctor. We can also arrange for same day telephone advice if you just need some reassurance. If you have been suffering with a problem for several days and it has not become any worse then please don't use emergency appointments. Please make an advance/normal appointment if you wish to see a specific Doctor.

 

 

We also offer routine appointments outside of working hours with our Doctors. Appointments are available for those who struggle to attend our core surgeries within working hours on a Saturday morning. Please contact reception to make an extended hours appointment.

 


Finally for patients who are recalled to have their blood pressure checked or who require regular blood pressure monitoring; you can now come at a time to suit you and self test on our meter adjacent to reception. Please ask at reception for further details.

 

You can now book appointments over the internet - you will need to have an internet registration form, please see reception for details. We give these out in person. For reasons of confidentiality we cannot give registration details to anyone other than the patient and we do not offer internet appointments to patients under the age of 16 years. Please bring along one form of idenitification with you to collect the paperwork, such as a driving licence or passport. 

 

 

 

 

New ‘Improved Access’ Appointments

From 1 April 2018 the following practices are participating in a pilot scheme to offer SEVEN DAY access to a GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner appointment:

Leckhampton; Seven Posts; Sixways; Stoke Road;

and Winchcombe Medical Centre

This means that appointments will be available at one of the listed practices on a rotating basis outside of normal working hours.

These appointments are pre-bookable through your normal practice, but please note there is no telephone access to the surgeries after 6.30pm Monday to Friday or at weekends.

For urgent appointments, on Saturday afternoons and all day Sunday up until 8pm, a county-wide service will be provided from three central locations in Cheltenham, Stroud and Gloucester.

We hope that our patients will find these ‘Improved Access’ appointments helpful, particularly those people who need to book appointments outside of normal working hours.
