Doctor Appointments

There are doctors surgeries available on a daily basis Monday to Friday throughout the working day. Each surgery comprises a mixture of ten minute face to face appointments and five minute telephone appointments in order to offer patient choice.

Some procedures may take longer and the doctor or receptionist will advise you if more time is required.

  • If you want a contraceptive implant, you should make a five minute telephone appointment with Dr Halliday in the first instance. She will discuss the options with you and make a further appointment with you for insertion.
  • If you want a coil fitted, you should make a ten minute face to face appointment with Dr Raj in the first instance. At this appointment, she will examine you and discuss your options. She will make an appointment with you for fitting the coil.
  • Minor surgery is carried out by Dr Beaumont, but any lesion needs to be assessed by a doctor first before you make an appointment to ensure that it is suitable for excision in the surgery

Please remember that our senior nurses may be the more appropriate clinician to see you e.g. if your asthma is troubling you. Details of services provided by the practice nurses are available HERE.
