On the day appointments are also available. Patients are asked to call the surgery between 8am and 10pm to book an urgent appointment.
How Long Are Appointment Slots?
Our normal appointment slots are 10 minutes long. however some things require longer appointments and you will be advised of this at the time of booking. If you feel you need an appointment that is longer or shorter than the designated 10 minute slots, please would you advise the receptionist when booking your appointment and your consultation time will be adjusted accordingly. Only one ailment is discussed within a 10 minute appointment. 1 ailment 1 appointment.
Extended Hours our practice has dedicated appointment slots for our patients to see a doctor at Dewsbury Health Centre on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings between 7pm and 9pm. Please tell our reception staff if you would like to book into an appointment at these times.
Evenings, Monday to Friday and Weekends we are part of a scheme which is funded by the 27 practices in North Kirklees where patients from all the practices are able to book an appointment to see a doctor (male or female) at Dewsbury Health Centre at the times below. This is on a first come first served basis and appointments can be booked in advance. Please tell our reception staff if one of these slots would suit you better.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible. Failure to do so may result in you being deducted from the practice registration list.
Did Not Attend
Each month we have many missed appointments that could have been offered to another patient. We recognise that sometimes this is due to needing emergency care, however if you change your mind or are unable to make your appointment, please give the practice the opportunity to provide it to another patient. Call the surgery on 01924 438222 to cancel.
