You can choose which doctor you wish to see, however in the event of holidays and sickness doctor availability is somewhat limited. If a doctor has started treating you it is best to remain with that doctor for a continuing problem.
We run a computerised appointment system; We offer advance and follow up appointments which can be booked up to 2 months in advance (subject to availability).
Please make it clear if your problem requires urgent attention.
Routine appointments will be offered at the first available time with the doctor of your choice. We cannot always offer you an urgent appointment (i.e. on the same day) with your own doctor.
Dr S Iqbal’s days are Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays.
Dr A Chowdhury's days are Wednesday and Fridays.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
If you do not attend an appointment more than once without cancelling you will be given written warn, which may result in your removal from our patient registration list.
Did you know…?
We are participating in a new approach to improve access for patients to GP appointments. The aim is to direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional, which may be a GP or a pharmacist. From 5th July 2021 if your symptoms could be resolved by a booked consultation with the pharmacist instead of the GP, you will be given a same-day referral to a pharmacy of your choice.
We think this is a good thing. Once you see how great your local pharmacist is – they are highly trained and skilled clinicians experienced in treating minor illnesses – we don’t think you’ll look back.
This will also help us to free up GP appointments for people with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, by the right healthcare professional.
