Booking an Appointment

All consultations are by appointment which are allocated on the day.

We have a limited number of pre-book appointments for patients with work, childcare or other commitments. These pre-bookable, non-urgent appointments are available up to 2 weeks in advance and will not necessarily be available for the day you telephone the surgery.

We will try to accommodate any requests for specific GP’s but this cannot be guaranteed.

You can expect to see any GP within two working days, though you may have to wait longer if you want to see a particular GP. If you don’t need an appointment within two working days, you also have the option to book up to 2 weeks in advance if this is more convenient for you. As these appointments are limited, they do get booked quickly.
Nurses based in our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions. You can expect to see a nurse within one working day.

10 minute rule!! - Please be advised that if you are 10 minutes late in attending for your appointment, you will be required to make another appointment.
Aston Surgery
The branch surgery at Aston is open between 8.00 a.m. & 11.30 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. Consultations are by appointment which are allocated in the same way as Alvaston Surgery.
Why might it be difficult to get an appointment
The surgery is increasingly busy, especially during the winter months. If your appointment is not urgent, try to book by telephoning after 10.30am. Please make sure you attend you appointment!! If you let us know as soon as possible you can't attend your appointment, we can then make it available for another patient.

Routine appointments
If you need to book a routine follow-up appointment with a particular GP you can make an appointment up to two weeks in advance. However, these appointments do get booked quite quickly. Please phone after 10.30am to avoid busy times. Many routine appointments are for patients who have a long-term or chronic condition that needs monitoring on a regular basis. Routine appointments are available during normal surgery hours with the practice nurse and/or doctor. We hold regular clinics for asthma, hypertension and diabetics. Please see the ‘services and clinics’ section for the full list.

Same day appointments

We are a busy practice and providing some same day appointments makes it easier for you to see a doctor quickly. 90% of our GP appointments are same day appointments. You can phone anytime from 8.00 am for same day appointments.
