IMPORTANT NOTICE - Longshore Surgeries are preparing to change computer systems.
From Monday the 9th of September to Friday the 20th of September inclusive we will only be able to offer appointments for Medical Emergencies only. For Repeat Prescriptions please ensure that you order these in advance by Monday the 9th September. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience during this time.
We offer a large number of 'book on the day' appointments; however, we also have some pre-bookable slots in the morning and the afternoon which can be booked upto a month in advance.
These are for doctors' requests, and also for patients needing to arrange time off work or for child care.
Please note the following:
- One appointment is for one patient.
- Each appointment is for 10 minutes, but sometimes a longer consultation is needed. Please be patient if you have to wait, and make provisions for this when booking your appointment.
- If you know in advance that you have a lot to discuss, ask for a longer appointment, thus avoiding delays to other patients.
All nurse appointments can be booked up to six months in advance. Antenatal checks can also be booked in advance.
We offer chaperones for all intimate examinations when required. However, if a nurse is not available this may necessitate a return visit when a nurse is able to act as a chaperone.
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.
