Appointments

To book an appointment:

At Westongrove we offer two types of appointments:

  • On the day urgent appointments.
  • Pre-Bookable routine appointments – for those patients who want to book more than two days and up to four weeks ahead.

Q doctor

As part of our commitment to improving access for our patients we’re using Q doctor to enable video consultations with GPs.

This means for certain conditions, you can see a GP from home or work, without having to come to the practice. Simply sign up to Q doctor and either call your practice to get a patient code or sign up directly using your photo ID. If your practice has opted to use codes to book appointments you can use your patient code to book your first video appointment, or if your practice isn’t using appointment codes then just book an appointment that suits you.

For further information, please see the Q doctor leaflet.

Urgent Appointments

Should you require an urgent appointment and there are no routine appointments available that day, the receptionist will ask for your contact number and the duty doctor or a practice nurse, or most appropriate healthcare professional will call you back with advice or a time to come into the surgery. The majority of practice nurse appointments are pre-bookable.

Pre-Bookable Appointments

There are also appointments which you may pre-book up to four weeks in advance to see the doctor of your choice (subject to that doctor being available). This option is helpful if you need to plan ahead.

Signposting

Westongrove operates a system called ‘Signposting’. This is a software programme used by the reception team that has been written by the Doctors. It points a patient towards the most appropriate member of the clinical team based upon their current ailment / reason for wanting to book an appointment. Therefore when you contact the surgery our reception staff will ask you why you would like to book an appointment and it is most helpful if you can give them a reason.
