Appointments

For GP appointments, we now operate a telephone triage system. Please advise us of your complaint and we will add this to the triage list. You will then be called by a clinician who will either help you over the telephone or ask you to come into the surgery.

Appointments to see a Practice Nurse can be made in advance.

Our Surgery hours are 8:00am – 6:30pm Monday to Friday.


Online Booking of Appointments

We are not currently offering any online appointments bookings as all calls are triaged as explained above.

However we will be introducing AskMyGP in the near future so please watch this space.

Late Arrivals

If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, the Doctor or Nurse will NOT be able to see you. Please make sure you factor in plenty of time for parking/public transport, etc.


DNAs – Did Not Attends

Each month we have a staggering amount of appointments where people did not attend. It is imperative that you attend the appointments you have been offered.  This has wasted clinicians’ time and stopped other people being seen. Please bear this in mind if you call and we are already at capacity, at that time.


Chaperones

Every patient is entitled to a chaperone. We have fully trained reception staff who will be happy to chaperone you during examinations, should you wish. Please just tell the Doctor that your are requesting a chaperone.


Telephoning the Surgery

Our telephone number is 01934 628 111 and is a local rate “geographical” number. Your phone provider will pass on a charge to you dictated by the agreement you have with your provider (e.g. they may bundle it with free minutes or charge you an access fee) which we have no control over. All we can say is you will be charged the same as if you were calling another Weston-super-Mare 01934 number.

Phones are manned from 8.00am to 6.30pm. Outside of these hours you will be directed to hang up and call 111 for out of hours advice and urgent care.


Other Care Providers

In the case of a medically urgent problem arising out of surgery hours contact should be made with the NHS 111 service. Please call 111.
