Appointments with a GP

Appointments with a GP are available with Dr Kauschinger or Dr Riley (or sometimes with a locum GP).  We offer routine appointments which can be booked well in advance, usually with the GP of your choice.  We also offer a limited number of Next Day appointments for patients who need to be seen sooner.

Our GPs will also see patients for a Same Day appointment for an urgent problem according to the GP’s assessment of your clinical need.   This means that our Receptionists will ask for brief details of your problem to pass-on to the Duty GP who may telephone you at home for more details, or ask you to come in to the Surgery.  We are not able to routinely accommodate minor ailments and self-limiting conditions, such as colds, as urgent appointments.

Please note that during the tourist season we have to manage the additional demand for GP appointments from visitors who need to see a doctor.  We do our best to accommodate this extra demand by providing extra appointments wherever possible.  But demand can outstrip supply on a very busy day, especially Mondays and around Bank Holidays.

We understand that being unable to get an appointment when you want one can be frustrating and we will do our best to help you.  Please treat our Reception staff with courtesy and respect so they can do their job and offer you the appointment you need.  Thank you.
