Blake House Surgery GP Appointment Services
Appointments On The Day
The majority of appointments are telephone triage bookable ‘On The Day’ and are released at 8.30am on any given day. Please ring in as near to 8.30am as possible to take one of these daily appointments as they are usually filled quickly. If doctor wishes to see you after the telephone consultation, you will be given appointment in the afternoon.
The surgery is currently experiencing very high telephone call volumes. We would ask you to kindly review whether your call is urgent for the same day and if it is not, then please use our consult forms.
Did you know that you can also use this form for medicines inquiries or blood test inquiries? You can also attach your photographs to this for review. The GPs can then screen your message and decide on the next step in your patient pathway
You may be offered an ‘Emergency Appointment’ which is a 5 minute consultation for one urgent problem only.
Internet Appointments (This service is suspended at present due to Covid-19)
