Booking an Appointment
Our surgeries are all by appointment only, between 8.30 am and 6pm. To make an appointment, you can either telephone the surgery or visit in person. If you wish to make an appointment with a particular doctor you will probably need to book a few days in advance as the doctor does not spend the whole week working at just one surgery.
If your need is urgent, please make this clear to the receptionist and be prepared to see the duty doctor (who may not be the doctor you generally see). We will do our best to offer you an appointment the same day in case of genuine need.
You stand a far better chance of a same-day appointment if you contact us as soon as possible after 8.30am. Conversely, if you phone at 5.00pm for a same day appointment you are likely to be disappointed unless your need is very urgent.
See the Surgery Timetable tab above to view the individual clinic times.
Improving Access to General Practice Services
We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends. If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask. These appointments may be at a different site e.g. The Urgent Treatment Centre at Royal Bournemouth Hospital.
