Book a routine GP appointment using SystmOnline
We offer the ability for patients to book appointments online, which means you can book an appointment 24/7 without having to phone the surgery.
Patients who have registered to use the SystmOnline Patient Access system can book routine GP appointments online using their SystmOnline login, which is the same login details as the online repeat prescription requests.
If you don’t have a SystmOnline login, please follow this link to our SystmOnline page to find out how to register>>
Book a consultation with a GP or Nurse Practitioner using eConsult
We also offer patients the ability to book an appointment online for a consultation using the eConsult system, which is available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. Using eConsult allows you to explain why you want an appointment – you don’t have to try to explain everything within the first few minutes of an appointment. The Practice can then decide how best to help you – you may not even need to come into the Surgery.
Please complete the eConsult form with as much information as you can, sending photos where appropriate (e.g. for a rash or mole). Our Nurse Practitioners review these forms, normally within 48 hours, whereby you can expect to be contacted. Completing an eConsult form online avoids telephone queues, connects you to relevant information, and if an appointment is needed, it will be with the most suitable clinician to treat you.
There can be a variable wait for a routine or follow up face to face appointment, therefore please book your appointment as soon as possible. You are more likely to be offered an appointment with your preferred clinician if you are able to book early.
Use eConsult for General Health Advice
Don't forget that you can also use eConsult for those times when you don’t need to see a GP but may want some general health advice. Click on the image below or follow this link to access eConsult>>
