You will be able to make an appointment to see a doctor or a nurse up to 4 weeks in advance. We run all our surgeries by an appointment only system. You can make an appointment in person, via the telephone or via the internet (Online Access). Please note that doctors’ appointments are usually 10 minutes. We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.
You can help the surgery run smoothly if you:-
- check in using the Automated arrivals system or report to the reception desk when you arrive.
- let the receptionist know if you are likely to need more than 10 minutes at the time of booking
- remember that the appointment is for one person only.
- try to be punctual.
- let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to keep an appointment
If you are over 16 and have not been seen by a health professional in the last 3 years (1 year if over 75) you may request a general health check
Nunwell Surgery provides appointments as an Extended Hours Service. Routine appointments can be pre-booked to see a Health Care Assistant, our Nurse Practitioner or a GP outside of our normal contracted hours. These are between 6.30 – 8.00 pm on Monday evenings.
The Surgery is not open for normal access during this time.
Telephoning the Doctor
Doctors are available to give advice over the phone. Please call the normal surgery number and speak to reception. The receptionist will normally take your details and the doctor will call you back. Please make sure that you are available to answer the telephone when the doctor calls back. If you change your telephone number or mobile number please inform the surgery.
On arrival please let Reception know if you require a chaperone to accompany you to your consultation with a clinician. The Chaperone will be either a Nurse/Health Care Assistant or a trained member of the Practice Staff.
