APPOINTMENT SYSTEM 

You will be able to book an appointment either on the same day or up to two weeks ahead. We have increased the number of advanced booking appointments to 50% of the total available.
 
The receptionist will ask you some questions when you contact the surgery, this is in order to ensure that patients with a need or perceived need for a „same day‟ appointment can be seen by the most appropriate health professional which may be a doctor (not necessarily the one of your choice) or a nurse. All information is treated in strict confidence but you are under no obligation if you prefer not to respond to the receptionists enquiries. 
 
For many conditions for which you may previously have seen a doctor you will now be able to see one of the other members of our healthcare team, this will allow doctors more time to spend with complicated cases. For a continuing problem, please try to book your appointment with the same healthcare professional that saw you previously. If you have more than one problem to discuss, please book a DOUBLE appointment. 
 
Some things do not need an appointment at all, e.g. repeat prescriptions where a „medication review‟ is not needed, forms and reports. Check with the receptionist. 
 
We have an Automation Arrival Service which you can use instead of waiting for a receptionist to book you in, this is sited on your LEFT when you walk in to the waiting area, all you need to do is tap the screen and follow the on screen instructions. 
 
You can now book your appointments via our website (see front of leaflet for details) from your home computer, please go to the reception desk and ask for a website registration form which has all the details for you to take home and register, this will then give you access to use this new service. 
 
As appointments for all services are in limited supply please let us know as early as possible if you cannot attend so that we may provide another patient with an appointment. 
 
Patients are registered with St John‟s Medical Centre, not a specific Doctor. We will however make every effort to arrange for patients to see the GP of their choice. Please ask at the time off making your appointment. 
 
Finally, we welcome suggestions for further improvements to our appointment system.
