Increase in access to appointments with your GP
In order to improve access to appointments and to manage the problems we are having with the phone system, we have now made some appointments available to book up to four weeks in advance. We are also holding some of the afternoon appointments and releasing them at 12pm each day, rather than releasing all the appointments in one go at 8.20am. This also applies to advance booking appointments and internet bookable appointments.
We hope this will help reduce the waiting times for calls to be answered in the mornings and reduce the occasions when the phone system ‘drops’ callers out of the queue before they get through to the practice.
Our new telephone system is due to be installed in May this year.
Thank you for your patience whilst these changes are being introduced.
