Same day appointments are available from 8am Monday – Friday, although some come available online from 7am. Patients are advised to telephone the surgery or come to reception in person at 8am to obtain an appointment.
We also offer pre-bookable appointments bookable up to 3 weeks in advance.
Extended access clinics are held at Picton Medical Centre outside normal practice opening hours. Appointments are available from 9am and can be booked with the reception staff in the normal ways.
On booking appointments reception staff will ask for a brief description as to why you need an appointment, so that you are seen by the most relevant clinician.
Once all on the day appointments are gone the receptionist follows a triage system established by the doctors to establish whether there is a risk of dangerous deterioration in a patients condition. Only in such cases can the receptionist request a call back on the day from the on call GP.
