Where are we?

When should you make an appointment with your GP?

Before you make an appointment to see your GP, consider the alternatives shown below. Your local pharmacist may be able to give you the help you need and if not direct you to the most appropriate healthcare professional.

If you feel that you do need to see the GP, you can make an appointment at Iwade Health Centre by:

  • Calling the surgery from 8am on 01795 413100
  • Visiting the surgery

If you feel that you need an appointment, call the surgery as above. The receptionist will try to find you an ‘on-the-day’ appointment or ask the duty doctor for advice as most appropriate.

If it is outside of surgery hours, but you need urgent (not life-threatening) advice, you should call NHS 111

For life threatening emergencies, you must call 999

The appointment slots are for 10 minutes – to cover ONE issue. If you have more than one problem, decide which is most important and start from there. If you have several, or a complicated problem ask for a longer appointment when you book and the receptionist will do their best to help.
