How to Book An Appointment

During the Pandemic we are operating a predominately telephone consultation service.  Dr Jones has asked that when booking any appointment please provide the receptionists with as much information as possible, including the reason for the appointment and the urgency.  This helps the staff book your appointment into the correct appointment slot with the correct clinician.   Dr Jones says knowing the reason for the appointment helps them to prioritise their patients.  All information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence. 

Routine Appointments with the Nurse These can be booked up to 3 weeks in advance.  Due to the variation in appointment length and clinic days, these can only be booked either by telephone or in person.  The average wait for a routine Nurse appointment varies from 1 to 2 weeks.  For certain clinics, i.e. Annual Diabetic Reviews, the wait might be slightly longer but you will be advised when booking your appointment.
