Appointments

Fairhill Medical Practice run all our surgeries by an appointment only system. Appointments can be booked by telephoning the surgery , in person or by registering on line. They can be booked up to 4  weeks in advance although there are many appointments that are  made available on the day.

We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.

If you are too ill to come to the surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the surgery before 10am. Home visits take up much more of a doctor’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen.

Failure to Attend Appointments

On an average week, over 50 patients fail to attend either doctor or nursing appointments. This unfortunately represents a complete waste of our resources and wastes appointments that could have been offered to other patients. Should any patients repeatedly fail to attend appointment then they will be removed from our practice list and would need to find an alternative doctor for their health needs.
