How to book an appointment

A computerised appointment system is used. Appointment times are allocated on average every 10 minutes and we do our best to run to time, although sometimes late running is beyond our control. Late arrivals for appointments may be seen at the doctor’s discretion. Same day appointments are available although it may not be possible to see your preferred doctor and it will be a shorter appointment.

Please be prepared to give the Triage Nurse / Receptionist details regarding the nature of your problem as this helps you to be seen by the most appropriate person.

Telephone Consultations can be booked in advance and you will be rung on the telephone number you have given.

Evening and weekend appointments

Evening and weekend appointments are available with GPs, practice nurses and other healthcare professionals for routine pre-booked services.

The Fylde Coast NHS is committed to improving access to primary care services. This includes making appointments available at times that are convenient to patients.

If you:

  • find it difficult to attend an appointment during the working day;
  • are a busy parent with small children;
  • or rely on working carers to take you to appointments;

then this service is here to support you.

 

About the service

The Fylde Coast NHS has arranged for additional appointments to be provided outside of normal GP practice hours by the Fylde Coast Integrated Urgent Care Service.

The service offers pre-bookable and same-day routine primary care appointments with a range of clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.

Please be aware that this is not a walk-in service – you must have an appointment.

The service employs local clinicians from the Fylde Coast, where possible.
