Grange Medical Group


We try to make sure you see the doctor or nurse of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor or nurse.

Urgent cases can be seen on the same day by the first available Doctor, otherwise you will be offered the next available appointment.

If you are too ill to come to the surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the surgery before 10am. Home visits take up much more of a doctor’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen.

We offer a 10 minute appointment with doctors and nurses for one condition/problem.  If you have complex health needs or have several things you need to discuss please ensure you let reception staff know when making your appointment to enable a longer appointment length to be arranged.

Your doctor or nurse may ask you to make another appointment should the time allocated not be long enough to cover all the things you wish to discuss.

If you are unable to keep an appointment, please inform the reception staff as soon as possible so that your appointment may be offered to another patient.   

Patients who regularly fail to attend for their booked appointments, or cancel at very short notice, may be asked to leave our Practice list.
