Routine Medical Appointments (GPs & Nurses)
The way GP appointments are made can vary significantly between GP Practices. There is no minimum time set within which you should see your GP. If your problem is urgent we with try and see you as soon as possible. (RCGP July 2011)
AN APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY IF YOU WISH TO CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR OR NURSE.
Ashley Medical Centre aims to provide 4 surgeries, five days per week with 10 minutes appointments. Due to the significant number of DNA's . Routine appointments are usually available within 7 - 10 working days. However, if you require a named Doctor you may have to wait longer All surgeries are by appointment only.
Please note appointments for medical reasons will be given priority over those for insurance, Disability Living Allowance and other non medical administrative tasks.
All appointments with Doctors and Nurses are at 10 minute intervals. Patients who require longer should notify the Reception Staff when booking so that suitable time may be given. Doctors and Nurses request that Patients prioritise their health needs as they cannot deal with multiple concerns in a 10 minute appointments. You may be asked to book another appointment if the Doctor or Nurse cannot deal with all your concerns
