In a medical emergency, including experiencing chest pains, call 000

Patients can ask to see their usual doctor when making appointments. If that doctor is unavailable, reception staff will offer an appointment with another doctor or will make an appointment for their regular doctor when next available.

If you do not have an appointment we will offer you the next available appointment.  This will not necessarily be on that day, nor with your preferred doctor.

If you come after an accident or in an emergency, our nurses will triage you and recommend a course of action. If they think you should see a doctor you will be seen as a priority

A standard consultation is 10 minutes. If you need a longer appointment for complex consultations or for forms to be filled in please inform reception staff and they will arrange a double appointment.

Home visits can be arranged in Reservoir, Preston and Kingsbury. If you live outside these areas, we may offer our locum service. Please remember that home visits are time consuming and often medical care is better given at the surgery where we have access to all our equipment and services. If you require a home visit please call before 10:00. Please be aware that your preferred doctor may not be available for a home visit.
