We offer a range of appointments, some are pre-bookable and some will be made available on the day for urgent needs. Telephone consultations are also available.
You can expect to be asked the nature of the problem by the Reception staff so as this information can be passed to the clinician or they can help direct you to the most appropriate clinician or service.
You may also have a telephone triage consultation by the Duty GP if there are no bookable appointments available on the day.
Blood tests must be done at Ramsey before 11:30.
Chaperones are available at the doctor’s or patient’s request. It is helpful if we can arrange this beforehand. If one is requested during the appointment we will provide a chaperone but you may have to wait for one to become available.
If you arrive later than your booked appointment time you may not be able to be seen.
If you cannot keep your appointment, please ring us as soon as possible so we can offer it to someone else.

We will aim to offer appointments within 24 hours with a healthcare professional or within 48 hours with a healthcare professional of your choice.
Nurses based at our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions (e.g. minor injuries/illnesses, removing stitches, travel vaccinations, immunisations and so on). Our practice nurses are also specially trained to run routine clinics for certain conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. (Each of our nurses specialises in a different area, so you need to book ahead with the most appropriate person). Our reception staff will be able to advise whether a nurse appointment is appropriate.
Healthcare assistants carry out, blood testing, INR blood monitoring, hearing tests, blood pressure checks, weight checks, ECGs and sleep apnoea monitoring, spirometry, B12 injections and chaperoning.
Nursing Care At Home
Patients who are confined to their homes and need nursing assistance may arrange with the doctor for a community nurse to call. They will be able to help assess your needs and give information and support. Practical nursing care may include injections, blood tests, dressings and help for patients with incontinence.
