THE APPOINTMENT SYSTEM
There are a number of different types of appointments available each day.
There are a number of appointments available with our GPs and Advanced Practitioners that can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance. These do get utilised quickly and we would advise that if you wish to pre book an appointment please do so as soon as possible and try to ring later in the day when the telephones are not as busy, ie after 10.00am or book on-line. If you wish to see a doctor of your choice then you may have to wait longer to be seen, for example 2-3 weeks.
Book on the day
The remaining appointments can be booked from 8.00am every day. Please ring early if you wish to see your regular doctor or if you require a particular appointment time.
Alternatively we operate an internet appointment booking system but you do require a password for this. If you are interested please ask at reception.
In order to improve acute access we now have a new appointment system on a Friday. The reason behind this is the need to be able to offer timely support for problems before the weekend. Our hope is that it may also reduce the number of wasted appointments, especially at a time when GP appointments are very valuable.
We will have appointments available, which are only bookable on the day, and are not doctor specific. Our GPs will instead see patients on a ‘next available basis’ which should help to reduce waiting times. We would hope that by only seeing acute problems there will be less of a need to see your usual doctor.
In order for these appointments to work effectively we ask that patients visit with only one problem (you may be asked to return at a later date to discuss further problems).
There will still be some pre-bookable appointments available for the GP at Keyingham and with our Advanced Practitioners at Hedon.
