How to make appointments

Our receptionists are here to help you get to the right service. The might suggest other professionals or services that could help you better such as Physio, Nurse, Pharmacist, Optician, Sexual Health, Talking Therapies, Bromley Well.

The Chislehurst Medical Practice provides bookable routine patient appointments with the Doctors and Nurses. These routine appointments are for 10 minutes. Sometimes patients need longer and sometimes patients want 2-3 things managed in that visit. Where possible the Doctors and Nurses try and do this but sometimes this may not be possible and the Doctor or Nurse may ask you to re-book. We would ask you to respect this. If you know that you will need longer than 10 minutes then please consider booking a longer appointment.

Telephone appointments are available to be booked online and via reception. Please note we are unable to give a advice or book a telephone consultation for a patient who is outside the UK. If you are abroad you should seek advice from the nearest local service or contact us on your return.

E consultation is available via the website for all ages from 6 months- see link on homepage

Routine appointments up to 6 weeks ahead to see the Doctor or Nurse can be made:·

  • Via the website (initially you will need to come into the surgery to register for this service & bring photo ID with you). GP, Advanced Nurse Practitioner and (due to the different specialisms within the nursing team) specialist nursing appointments only which are indicated by the type of appointment e.g. diabetic asthma
    All other nursing appointments need to be booked by telephone please since Advanced Nurse Practitioners do not deal with routine nursing

    Choice of Practitioner

All patients have the right to express a preference for a particular practitioner; this should be stated when speaking to the reception staff at the time of booking. Staff will aim to offer you the next available non-urgent appointment. If your need is more urgent then please tell the staff and they will aim to offer you a sooner appointment but cannot guarantee with which practitioner

If you want a routine appointment please phone after 10.30 when the phone lines are less busy.

Urgent appointments

If you feel that your problem cannot wait until the appointment offered to you please tell the receptionist. She will then try and see if you can be fitted in earlier. If the problem is perceived to be so urgent that you need to be seen the same day please ring as soon after the practice opens (see opening hours for daily information) as possible; either you will be fitted in to a routine surgery, offered an appointment at another local site (see below) or invited to attend the Emergency Surgery which is only available for medical emergencies that cannot wait until the following day, when all other available appointments for the day have been filled.

Did Not Attends (DNA's)

Each year at least 1000 patients do not keep their booked appointments. This equates to one whole 3-hour surgery each week or 2 days of a doctors time per month or almost 5 weeks of a doctors time a year. Time that could otherwise be used to improve services for you. Please be considerate, if you are unable to keep an appointment then please inform us so that we can use that appointment for someone else. This can be done 24 hours a day 7 days a week using the telephone messaging service on the main surgery number Option 2.
