Appointments available now for on the day bookings.
At Wakefield Gardens Surgery, consultations are by appointment only.
A standard appointment is 15 minutes in length. This usually allows for the discussion of one problem only.
If you feel you will need longer than this time or that you have more than one problem to discuss please advise the receptionist so that a longer consultation can be booked for you.
Generally new patients will require a longer appointment.
Please advise us as soon as possible if you cannot keep your appointment. This allows us to use your appointment time to see other patients who are waiting. It is our practice policy that we need 6 working hours’ notice if you are unable to keep an appointment. If there are exceptional circumstances preventing you from attending your appointment, please let the receptionist know, otherwise a fee of 50% will be charged for nonattendance.
Our doctors try as much as possible to keep to time. You can help us with this by arriving on time for your appointment and booking a longer appointment if you feel you will need more time with the doctor. Sometimes, due to complications or emergencies that arise on the day, doctors do run late. We are happy for you to phone in advance of your appointment to check if there is likely to be a significant wait.
