How long until I hear back?

All medical queries are reviewed by a doctor you can expect a response on the same day in most cases. Replies for administrative queries are usually within 48 hours. 

Improving continuity

It is much better if your usual doctor can help you if you have an ongoing issue. They will have a better understanding of your problem and history.

If your usual doctor is on leave we will direct your query to another member of the team. If you have submitted your query on a day your usual doctor is not normally in we will ask you to resubmit it on a day when they are able to help you, so please check the list of working days before submitting your query.

Home visits

Home visits are for patients who are too ill or infirm to leave their home. If you need the doctor to visit you at home please complete an online consultation or telephone the Surgery on 01458 250464 before 10:30am and give the receptionist as much information as you can to help the doctor assess the urgency required. 

Evening and weekend appointments
