Please attend or telephone the surgery any time during working hours to make an appointment to see the doctor, nurse or other member of our clinical team.
You may also book online via the link at the top of this page. Please ask at reception for details about registering for this service.
Consultations usually last for 10 minutes with the doctor; times vary with the nurse and the other clinics depending on the need. If you wish a friend or relative to accompany you they may do so.
Please think twice before making an appointment – Eldon Road Surgery Timetable

If you require an appointment for a problem that you feel will not wait until the next available routine appointment, you will be given a time to attend towards the end of morning or afternoon surgery. You may not be able to see the doctor of your choice, your appointment will be limited to 5 minutes and you may also have to wait longer than usual.
For clinical issues that can be resolved on the phone the Surgery offers a limited number of slots at the end of morning surgery when you can speak to the doctor or practice nurse. These appointments should be booked on the day via reception.
Patients aged 75 or over who have not had a consultation in the past year and adult patients under 75 who have not had a consultation in the past three years all have the right to request a health check consultation.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
