Problems booking online appointments?
Use the Patient Access Support Centre before you call us.
A wide range of facilities and clinical services are available at CTS. Like most practices we have a very high demand for doctors' appointments. Therefore to keep as many appointments available for when you're unwell, we have a versatile team of staff who can deal with many routine problems.
Routine appointments for assessment and follow-up of most medical problems can be booked by telephone or at the surgery. For more urgent issues we have a limited number of appointments that may be booked on the day.
We like to bother you as little as possible for routine checks, but we do like to call upon you at least once a year to review certain health problems. We have recently started a new system to make this easier.
Our nurses and HCAs also offer a wide range of services, including womens' health clinics, various minor procedures, smoking cessation advice and annual health health checks.
Requesting Routine Appointments
Routine appointments can be booked through reception up to 3 weeks in advance.
All appointments with the doctor are 10 minutes long and often there is insufficient time to deal with multiple medical problems. We are always happy to deal with a list of problems time permitting but we request that you kindly let us know which issues you would like dealt with on the day, and should time not allow for the rest we are happy to see you at a future date. As you may have experienced, even our booked surgeries frequently run late, and as a courtesy to other patients we must ensure that appointment times are adhered to as much as possible.
For more urgent matters, a few appointments are saved so you can book for the same day. These urgent appointments are strictly 10 minutes long so we sincerely request that you focus on one problem to try and prevent surgeries from running late.
Missed appointments are a significant issue for most GP surgeries. We do understand that all patients have busy lives and unforeseen circumstances can crop up at any time. We request that you phone us to cancel your appointment at the first opportunity out of courtesy to fellow patients. Needless to say, this goes for ALL types of appointments, whether they be with the doctor, nurse, healthcare assistant or any other professional.
