You can make an appointment with a GP by telephone or by visiting the GP’s website. Booking online is often quicker.
You might be asked to give some details about the reason you want to visit the GP. This is to help the healthcare staff and your GP better prepare for your appointment or be able to signpost you to more suitable health practitioner.
Once you have booked your GP appointment, make sure you give yourself enough time to get there. It's important that you go to your appointment, or tell the surgery that you won't be able to come/no longer need the appointment in good time.
If you miss your appointment slot, you might need to book another appointment before being seen. If you miss a number of appointments some GPs may remove you from their patient list, meaning you'll have to find another GP.
