Appointments

boy_with_stethescopeAll consultations with the doctors and practice nurses are by appointment only. Please ring the relevant surgery during opening hours.

  • Wellside – Telephone 01332 737777
  • Mackworth – Telephone 01332 340850

You can also book appointments online with all of the Doctors and with our Advanced Clinical Practitioner.

The surgery offers appointments that are pre-bookable up to two weeks in advance. We will try to make appointments with the doctor of your choice but this may not always be possible.

If you need to be seen urgently please contact the surgery early as the doctor on call may need to make special arrangements to see you if all appointments are taken. If you are unable to keep an appointment please inform the surgery as soon as possible so that the appointment can be given to another patient. Failure to do so on more than one occasion, may result in you being asked to register with another surgery.

Appointments are for one patient and are 10 minutes duration.  Double appointments are available at the doctor’s discretion. Latecomers may be asked to make another appointment.

Language Interpreters

If a patient has difficulty speaking or understanding English, an interpreter can be booked in order to make consultations as clear as possible for both patient and doctor. Please request an interpreter when you book an appointment
