Your general practice team is the first point of contact if you:
- have an urgent care need
- have an illness that does not improve with self-treatment
- are worried about your health
- have an ongoing health condition
GPs are trained doctors, but you may also be offered an appointment with another clinical professional, such as a nurse. Your general practice team will refer you if you need more specialised care or treatment.
You can book an appointment with your general practice team by contacting them directly over the phone. Most GP practices also have the option to book online via their website, or on the NHS app.
Evening and weekend appointments
You can get an appointment outside of standard working hours. Some appointments are available in the evening and over the weekend. To access these, contact your practice in the usual way.
