Making an appointment with a doctor

Where possible, we encourage patients to see their own doctor for non-urgent appointments as this promotes a closer doctor / patient relationship, which helps in the continuity of care and treatment.

We appreciate however, that this may not always be possible due to an increase in GP commitments in other areas and part-time working hours. If you are unable to book an appointment with your own doctor, other clinicians are available to provide an equally high standard of service.

Future Appointments

An appointment can be made up to two weeks in advance. Please call at the surgery or telephone our direct line 01628 405550.

Please avoid the busy early morning hours, which we would like to keep clear for urgent appointments and emergency home visits required for that morning.

Appointments can also be made online once you have registered for online services.

Urgent Appointments

We offer a Rapid Access Clinic at the Marlow surgery for appointments which cannot wait for a routine consultation.

You will be offered a same day appointment time slot with either a doctor or a nurse. The receptionist will ask you to provide a brief description of your symptoms which will allow the clinicians to decide who is most suited to treat you.

Please help us to help you by managing minor illnesses at home - don’t forget your pharmacist can help with many minor problems.

See also our pages on Self Help.

Home Visits

If you are too ill to attend the surgery and require a home visit, please telephone before 10.00am, if possible. This will help the doctors to plan their visits for the day. The doctor may telephone to assess the need for a home visit and may decide that it would be better to see you at the surgery.

Please remember that a doctor can see up to four patients in surgery in the time it takes to make one house call. Patients can also be examined more thoroughly in a surgery environment.

Practice Nurse Appointments

The Practice Nurses may be seen by appointment. Services include:

  • Traditional nursing procedures 
  • Removal of sutures 
  • Dietary advice
  • Cervical smears 
  • Flu, tetanus and other vaccinations
  • Travel: injections (including yellow fever) and advice. (Charges are made for certain injections.)

Our Healthcare Assistants carry out hearing tests, blood pressure measurements and other services.

Blood Tests

Blood tests are undertaken by our phlebotomists at pre-booked morning appointments.

At Marlow, appointments are available each weekday morning between 8.30 and 10.30am and at Lane End on Mondays and Thursdays between 8.30 and 11.00am.

Please bring along your blood test form given to you by your doctor.

Emergencies

For medical emergencies, please dial 999. For less urgent, out of hours assistance, dial 111.

Chaperone Policy

If you require a chaperone for your appointment, please let the receptionist know when you arrive.

Self Check-in

Use our self check-in screen at the Marlow surgery to speed up checking in. It saves time waiting at the reception desk and immediately lets the clinician know you have arrived for your appointment.

Lateness for Appointments

Late arrival for appointments can result in surgeries running late and cause inconvenience to others.

If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment with the doctor or nurse, you will be asked to rebook your appointment. If you are between 5-10 minutes late you may be asked to wait until the end of surgery to be seen or fitted in at a later time during the day at the clinician’s discretion.

The receptionist may need to speak to the clinician first to see if they are able to accommodate you.
