Appointment times vary across the working day, from Monday to Friday. The receptionists will be able to advise you of specific session times.
Appointments are usually booked 10 minutes apart. Some can be booked up to four weeks in advance while others are kept for same-day bookings. Patients are usually seen within 48 hours of contacting their health centre, although some prefer to wait longer to suit their own needs.
One night each week (alternating Mon/Tues/Wed/Thurs), 18:00 – 20:00, at either Callington Health Centre or Gunnislake Health Centre.
Every Saturday, except Bank Holiday weekends, 08:30 – 11:00, at either Callington Health Centre or Gunnislake Health Centre.
Extended hours appointments are pre-bookable and preferably for patients that find it difficult to come to the surgery during normal working hours.These appointments cannot be made on the day.
How to Arrange a Medically Urgent Appointment
Patients who need to be seen on the day for acute conditions will be signposted and booked to see the most appropriate clinician in our acute care team which consists of Nurse Practitioners, General Practice Paramedics, Pharmacists and GPs. If the most appropriate clinician is a GP then patients will be assessed over the phone and allocated appointments accordingly. We are confident that this will allow patients to be treated more quickly, efficiently and effectively.
To book an appointment, please contact the practice via telephone.
If you feel that a telephone call from a doctor or nurse is more appropriate than an appointment, please tell the receptionist. Telephone consultation slots have been built into the appointment system so that you can be given an approximate time when you will be called back. This saves you waiting in all day for a call, and also saves the doctor or nurse from making numerous calls before getting a reply. However, there may be some delays due to previous calls taking longer than anticipated.
