How to book an appointment
- Telephone: 01253 890219
- By attending the reception desk in person during Surgery opening hours (preferably in the morning)
You have a right to express a preference of practitioner and we will do our best to give you an appointment with the doctor of your choice. Should your preferred doctor not have a free appointment, you will be offered an appointment with one of the other clinicians at the practice.
You will never be refused to see a clinican if one is available. Please remember that appointments are for ONE person only and, if possible, are for ONE problem per consultation.
GP / Clinical appointments
We operate a same-day booking system for appointments. We ask our patients to call us in the morning for a same day telephone appointment. The clinician will ring you and if appropriate, will offer you a face-to-face appointment for later in the day.
Our doctors have 40% of appointments in their sessions for their use only. These are used when they wish to review a patient again or if they need to see a patient following a phone call.
Where appropriate, we do have a number of appointments that can be booked in advance.
Same day appointments with a Clinical Practitioner
We continue to offer same day urgent telephone appointments for minor self-limiting complaints that cannot be managed by the local pharmacy with our clinical practitioner. These are not intended for long term conditions.
Fleetwood Same Day Health Centre
On a daily basis we can access a limited number of appointments for our patients who have acute self-limiting conditions to attend, these are useful if you need to book for later in day (8am-10pm).
You can pre-book nurses appointments over the telephone.
Long Term Condition Management
As part of our commitment to high quality care for all, the practice nurse invites patients in for an annual review of their long term condition.
These patients will be contacted by practice staff offering an annual Long Term Condition review. This will be done by mail or if you prefer by text or email if you have given your consent.
You can also telephone the practice yourself or attend our reception desk to make an appointment when the time is convenient to you.
Annual reviews give us the opportunity to see how you are coping with your condition and offer advice and support for your needs. While we strongly encourage patients to attend their annual reviews, if you can’t, or don’t want to attend, we would be grateful if you could notify us so that we do not send you any more reminders until the following year.
The various types of review appointments we offer are run by our practice nurses and are each structured differently, depending on the condition being reviewed, so it is important to request the right . appointment type from the receptionist when you book.
Our nurses provide specialised appointments in the following:
- Chronic Heart Disease
Our Practice nurses operate several clinics
- Minor Ailments (Nurse Triage)
- Pill Initiation and reviews
- Cervical Screening
- Blood Pressure Checks
- Basic Travel immunisations and Travel Health
