Sleights and Sandsend Medical Practice will be closed on Monday 7th May 2018.

Selecting the most appropriate appointment


The Practice is committed to patients being able to make appropriate appointments when needed. Over time, more patients are requesting an increased number of appointments and we have been looking at how we can accommodate this.


Please help us to help you by thinking about the following when you need advice or an appointment:


When making an appointment consider whether you need to see a doctor, nurse practitioner, practice nurse or a healthcare assistant. Please discuss with the receptionist if you’re not sure.


You can request a telephone appointment if you think that a face-to face appointment is not needed - for example, for a test result or to discuss a medical certificate. The doctor would ring you at home on or around the booked appointment time. Please discuss with the receptionist if you’re not sure if a telephone appointment is appropriate.


Normal appointments are 15 minutes long. If you feel you need more than 15 minutes please request a double appointment (i.e 30 minutes). Longer appointments may also be made. Please discuss with the receptionist.


If you require a doctor to complete a medical, please ensure you ask for an initial appointment with the healthcare assistant followed by a double appointment with a doctor. We cannot guarantee that these appointments will be booked on the same day.



Text appointments and reminders



You can sign up for text appointments and reminders to your mobile phone. You will get an initial text with your appointment details on, then another reminder text a day before your appointment. If you would like to sign up for text reminders please call the surgery or ask at the reception desk.
