How to Make an Appointment

Appointments may be booked in several ways:


Patients can book appointments up to 4 weeks in advance using online services.

By Phone

Patients can book an appointment by calling reception on 020 8422 1813

In Person

Patients can visit the surgery and book an appointment with the receptionist.

Non-urgent advice: On the day (urgent only)

Every day at 08:40 am a limited number of telephone appointments become available, enabling you to speak to our doctors quickly if that needed.  During the consultation, the GP will make a decision whether yours is an issue that could be dealt with over the phone or if you need to be seen in our practice.  If the latter is the case, they will book an appointment for you to be seen either by themselves at our Practice or GP at one of the Hubs.

At such short notice there is much less flexibility over the time of the appointment and choice of clinician.

Advance Booking

Bookable up to 4 weeks ahead, these provide choice and flexibility as to when and by whom you are seen. If these appointments are filled on a particular day the receptionist will look for an acceptable alternative.

A number of theses appointments are available to book online.

Non-urgent advice: Cancel an Appointment

Do you feel frustrated when you cannot get an appointment?

Every year wasted appointments cost NHS £162 million. This can cause serious delays in treatment for other patients. On average approximately 150 patients each month Did Not Attend (DNA) their appointment. This means the patient did not turn up for the appointment and did not contact the surgery in advance to cancel or change the appointment. This currently results in approximately 40 hours of wasted clinical time each month.

Home Visits

Home visits are for those patients who are housebound or undergoing end-of-life care and therefore cannot get to the Practice.  In the time taken for the doctor to do one home visit he could see 5 to 6 patients at the surgery.  For this reason it is in the doctor’s and the patient’s best interests that, whenever possible, an effort is made to get down to the surgery.  This does sometimes mean patients having to wait a while, but efforts are made to see people as soon as they arrive if their condition so dictates.

Request for a home visit should be made before 10:00 am, and the receptionist will need to be given a brief outline of the problem.  Please ensure you give the receptionist your DOB, name, address and telephone number.  It is very important to inform the receptionist if you are not staying at your home.

The GP may telephone you first to discuss your home visit request and from the information provided the doctor will then decide what action to take next.

When the GP Practice is fully booked, we may arrange for an appointment with the Harness Primary Care Network GP Access Hub that also provides care for our patients. Appointments at the GP Hub are available during weekday evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
