We run an advanced access appointment system, whereby we aim to offer everybody an appointment on the day they want it. The majority of our appointments are pre-bookable either by the online service or by contacting reception. On the day appointments are for emergency’s only. Reception at King's Road Medical Centre is now open from 8am.
If there are no appointment available on the day, practice reception staff will offer you appointment at the Alexander Avenue Clinic. We will find you the next available appointment or we can pre book the appointments for the weekend.

Have you Ever Wondered Why You Can't Get an Appointment at the surgery?
Every year wasted appointments cost NHS £162 million. This can cause serious delays in treatment for other patients. On average approximately 150 patients each month Did Not Attend (DNA) their appointment. This means the patient did not turn up for the appointment and did not contact the surgery in advance to cancel or change the appointment. This currently results in approximately 40 hours of wasted clinical time each month.
If you arrive very late we do not guarantee that you will be seen. If we are able to see you it may be at the end of surgery to prevent other patients being seen late.
It is your responsibility to let us know if you cannot make your appointment. Even if you ring an hour before it frees up a slot for someone else and we can be certain it will be snapped up quickly.
The doctors and practice nurse are happy to give advice (where appropraite) on the telephone. Please call between 10 - 12 and the receptionist will take a message for the doctor or Practice Nurse to call back after the surgery.
Home visits are for the bedridden or housebound ONLY. They should be requested between 10am - 1pm to enable the doctor to organise the call. Please note that lack of transport is not sufficient reason for a doctor to be called out. Children should usually be brought to the surgery. This is in accordance with current national guidelines.
