We will assess whether your issue can be dealt with by e-mail, over the phone, by video or face to face
Your request be directed to any doctor, although it's helpful to continuity of care if you ask your request to be directed to the same doctor for any ongoing problem.
How to help your doctor
There will always be a doctor available to help you in an emergency, but do think twice before contacting a doctor outside normal surgery hours.
- If a problem develops during the day, make contact with us while the surgery is open.
- If you can, contact the surgery as early as possible (8:00am - 10:30am), this will help your doctor plan their day to deal with the patients who most need them first of all.
- Do be prepared to take time off work to see your doctor if necessary
- Help your doctor's surgery by submitting separate e consult request for each member of your family who needs to be seen
- If you are not going to be available for any pre-booked appointment, please notify the surgery as soon as possible - we can then re-allocate the slot to another patient.
Before you enter your e-consult request
It's a good idea to think about what you want to say or ask, Take time to think this through when submitting your request. If you have a pre-booked phone, video or face to face appointment, please remember that time is limited to 10 minutes.
