Tean Surgery






For the Doctor

All consultations are by appointment only

Please ring the Surgery you wish to attend on the day you would like to be seen.  If this is difficult please inform the staff as 40% of all our appointments are available to pre-book.

To help us to ensure that the new system runs smoothly it would be appreciated if you:

  • Arrive on time. If you are late you might not be seen
  • Cancel any unwanted appointments
  • Question if you need to see the doctor or would the nurse be more appropriate

Our Nursing Staff are virtually always in attendance, and the Doctors may consider it appropriate to use their expertise to deal with your problem.

We aim to see 70% of patients well within 30 minutes of an appointment time assuming 10 minutes per consultation.  We review our performance but complex problems or emergencies may interfere with this and we would inform you if that were happening.  In return we expect to be informed if you are unable to keep your appointment.

**Information about ‘Extended Access’**

Under the Extended Hours Primary Care Services programme, there is a requirement for patients to be able to access 1½ hours additional appointments after 6.30pm each week day and an effective weekend service based on the local needs of the area. All practices must be able to direct patients to the service and offer a choice of evening or weekend appointments on an equal footing to core hours appointments.

Please go to our New Page titled, Extended GP Access for more information

Online Appointments
