Appointments

At the Tile House all patients have a named accountable GP, who is responsible for your overall care at the Practice, if you do not know who this is you should contact Reception who will be able to tell you, if you have a preference as to which GP this is we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.

To maintain continuity of care we prefer you to see or speak to your own doctor for routine appointments whenever possible.

We offer both telephone and face to face appointments, for some conditions such as skin complaints, breast lumps and other lumps (this list is not exhaustive) the doctor will require you to have a face to face appointment reception will be able to advise which type of appointment is best when you speak to them.

The telephone lines can be very busy especially early in the morning. If possible, for non-urgent matters, please telephone after 10:00.
