Friday Appointment System Change Notice
We have been operating a triage-style led appointment system on Fridays for the last 2 and a half years. This has been a useful way of managing appropriate and rapid patient access on Fridays, when demand can often be higher and unpredictable. However, due to the unprecedented rise in our patient list size and in patient expectation, we now have to move to an appointment system which will enable us to better manage patient access on Fridays. Commencing on Friday 13th December we will now run our Friday appointment system in a similar way to Monday-Thursday. This will mean that there will be a limited selection of routine appointments, telephone appointments, 48 hour (urgent) appointments, and emergency (same day) appointments. Any patient looking to make an emergency appointment will be offered the first available appointment only.
More information on what each of these different appointments are designed for can be found on our website: http://www.thebishoptonmedicalpractice.co.uk/making-appointments
