New Patient Consultation: 15 minutes with practice nurse (complementary) followed by 30 minutes with GP 

Currently all of our general practitioners are accepting new patients. If you are attending the practice for the first time we advise to attend 5 minutes early in order to complete your clinical history form. You will receive an SMS from HotDoc requesting you to complete your demographic information. It is helpful that this is submitted prior to your consultation. If you do not wish to complete this form online you will be given a paper form by the reception team along with a clinical history form.

Childhood checks and Vaccinations: 15 minutes with practice nurse (complementary) followed by 30 minutes with GP 

Where possible childhood checks and vaccinations are booked in tandem with the practice nurse. 15 minutes is allocated to the nurse to perform the percentile check (height, weight etc) which is a complementary consultation. 30 minutes is then allocated to the doctor to complete check and vaccinations; a total length of time of 45 minutes. Please factor in a waiting time 15 minutes post vaccination to ensure no adverse events occur. Please note this does not apply to consultations for Bexsero injections. These are booked for 15 minutes with both the practice nurse and treating practitioner at the same time.
