Appointments

Appointment Times

Individual doctors’ appointment times are variable, however we offer appointments from 8am until 6.30pm every weekday. We also offer appointments in extended hours from 7am until 7pm on some days.

A selection of our appointments are available to pre-book up to 6 weeks in advance. These appointments can be booked up for some time so we also release a large number of routine appointments each morning at 8am which can also be booked by telephone or online.

You can make an appointment to see a doctor online or by telephoning 01327 703333 Option 1 on weekdays between 8.00am and 6.00pm. Consultations are by appointment only and it is often difficult to effectively manage more than one problem at each consultation.

It is preferable to book in advance for a routine appointment but if all routine appointments are taken and your need is urgent you will be seen by a doctor but not necessarily the doctor of your choice.  Please try to telephone before 10am if possible. 

A chaperone will be available if you request one.

The surgery is closed on Saturdays / Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Cancel an Appointment

Please contact the practice on 01327 703333 between 8.00am and 6.00pm Monday - Friday to cancel an appointment. 

If the practice is closed please phone 01327 708537 and leave a message. This message will be picked up the following working day. Please remember to leave your name and the appointment date and time you wish to cancel. 

It is important that you inform the patient services staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have missed your appointment. Patients that continually miss appointments may be removed from the practice list.

 

Telephone Consultations

Your GP can now deal with a number of things, such as results and reviewing some medications, over the telephone. If you would like to book a telephone appointment please call 01327 703333 (option 1).

Please be advised that incoming and outgoing calls to Danetre Medical Practice are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.

Test Results

If you are waiting for results of tests please call 01327 703333 and press Option 3 for ‘Results’ between 1.00pm and 4.30pm Monday to Friday. You can also receive some results via our SMS service. Please contact the practice for more information. 

Routine blood and urine test results are usually back within a week but x ray results, smear results and specialised blood tests can take 8 – 12 weeks.
