Appointments

Appointments System

Appointments can be booked online using Patient Access via the link below. Please ensure you have registered with Patient Access to be able to use the appointment booking system.

Appointments can also be made by dialling direct the appropriate secretary (see telephone numbers below).

Appointments last for 10 minutes and are for one person only. Please ask your GP's secretary if you feel you will require longer. We strongly encourage patients to see their own doctor as this encourages good continuity of care. Your doctor's secretary can arrange for you to see a particular doctor for certain problems if you wish. All information is treated in total confidence.

Please follow these guidelines:

  • Call as early as possible but avoid peak morning times for non-urgent calls or test results.
  • If you are unable to keep your appointment or you no longer need it, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer it to someone else. 
  • Be sure that you notify us of any change of address, telephone number or personal circumstances. 
  • The secretary may require some information from you to decide how best to help you and they may suggest you speak to the doctor to discuss the problem.
  • We encourage patients to plan ahead and to see their usual doctor.

Telephone Advice

Doctors and nurses are pleased to offer telephone advice.

Please telephone the secretary to arrange a time. This will usually be after morning surgery or before afternoon surgery.

If you are phoning to chase up results or anything to do with hospital appointments we often do not have the information either and if you could contact the patient liaison service at the relevant hospital.

Home Visits

Patients who are housebound may request a home visit. Decisions as to whether or not a home visit is warranted rest with the GPs and patients are likely to be assessed at home by our experienced paramedic. 

Please telephone before 10am if at all possible to requests visits. The majority of requests should, therefore, be received in the morning. Visits requests received after 2pm will be dealt with in a phone call in the first instance.

Requests for urgent or immediate visits will be referred immediately to your registered GP. If your registered GP is not working that day then the visit will be passed to the duty doctor for his/her advice.

Cancellations & Reminders

Cancel an Appointment

It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.

Text Reminder Service

We have a texting service which allows you to receive confirmation and reminders about your appointments.

To have this service you will need to register by completing a consent form.

Please remember to update your contact details with us when you change address, telephone numbers and email address.

Late For Your Appointment

Please attend your appointment on time, if you are late you may not be seen. If you are not seen you will not be able to rearrange your appointment until the next working day-except in the event of an medical emergency that requires immediate attention.

Interpreter

If you require an interpreter to attend with you when you see your Doctor please notify the receptionist and she will arrange this for you.

The Hall Practice Improved Access Service

Local GPs are working together to offer patients better access to appointments in General Practice in Buckinghamshire, known as the ‘Improved Access’ Service. This means that you can now book an appointment in a practice local to you:

  • Up until 8pm from Monday to Friday
  • From 9am until 1pm on Saturday
  • From 9am until 1pm on Sunday (at the FedBucks Improved Access Hub)

Southern Locality Improved Access GP Surgeries:

Patients registered with any GP Surgery within the Southern Locality will be able to access this service via the participating surgeries in their area. In the Southern Locality these surgeries are:

  • The Hall Practice
  • The Allan Practice
  • The Misbourne Surgery
  • The Ivers Practice
  • Denham Medical Centre
  • Threeways Surgery
  • Southmead Practice
  • Burnham Health Centre
    • Stoke Mandeville Hospital
    • Wycombe UTC (MIIU)
    • FedBucks Stoke Poges

All appointments need to be pre-booked, either in advance or on the day.

How to book an Improved Access appointment

Ring your GP Surgery as normal. If you would like an Improved Access appointment, the reception staff will tell you where clinics are being held on what day, and the times of the available appointments. A convenient appointment will be booked for you. If you use this service, it is very likely that you will be seen by a clinician from another surgery and not your own GP. The receptionist at your GP surgery will be able to provide details on this service to help you book an appointment.

This is NOT a walk in service – if you need urgent medical advice after 6.30pm, please phone NHS 111. NHS 111 will enable you to talk to a GP and book an urgent GP appointment if necessary.

You can also use our local online symptom checker, Health Help  now (http://bucks.healthhelpnow.nhs.uk/) to help to find the right service in Buckinghamshire for your health needs.
