Appointments

You can book an appointment using our Consulting Room. 

Most appointments are 10 minutes long for a GP or nurse.

Some nursing appointments and health checks will take longer.

We have some pre-bookable appointments each day but most appointments are available on the day.

Telephone appointments are 5 minutes and are bookable in advance.

Urgent Problems

These can be dealt with by a telephone call or appointment with a doctor or nurse.

If your problem is urgent please explain this to the receptionist who will book you in for a return call or appointment.

We have a Duty Doctor available everyday for emergency on the day appointments, you will be called via telephone first and the Doctor will decide if you need to be seen urgently.

How do I obtain telephone advice?

The doctors are able to take brief telephone calls in the mornings. If you wish to speak to a doctor please book a telephone appointment with reception.The doctor will return your call on the day requested.

Please ensure you will be available on the number you give as the doctor will not have time to repeatedly try to contact you.

Telephone Appointments

We are able to offer telephone appointments every day with all doctors at Abbey Medical Centre.

The appointments may be particularly useful in the following situations:

  • For blood test or x-ray results
  • If you wish to discuss a consultant letter
  • Medical advice when you do not need to see a doctor for example: simple urine infections, thrush, diarrhoea & vomiting
  • Medication reviews
