How to Make an Appointment

In person and telephone consultation appointments are available online by booking through the NHS App or Patient Access.

Urgent appointments for the same day are only bookable by calling Reception at 8 am.

Patients can book a non-urgent appointment by calling Reception,coming in to the Surgery to speak to the Receptionist, or booking through the NHS App or Patient Access.

Cancelling Your Appointment

When you receive an appointment at the Practice, please ensure that you arrive on time for an in person appointment.

For telephone consultations please ensure you are available to answer the telephone with a good signal if you have a mobile phone.

The clinicians will call you as near as they can to your appointment time but please allow flexibility around this time.

If you can no longer make your appointment, it is very important you let the practice know so this can be offered to another patient. A lot of money is wasted in the NHS every year by patients who do not attend a booked appointment.

If you receive an appointment reminder via text message and want to cancel it, you can text back CANCEL which will immediately cancel the appointment. Alternatively, you can call your practice to cancel your appointment.

Cancelling your Extended Hours appointment

To cancel an appointment booked with the Bromley GP Alliance or with the Hayeswick Partnership, please email [emailprotected]or call 020 3813 4930.

Home Visits

Home visits are only for patients who are housebound or too ill to attend the surgery. It is better for you to be seen at the surgery where there are better diagnostic tools and better facilities to properly assess you.

If you require a home visit please call Reception on 020 8462 1601as soon as possible in the morning and give the receptionist your details.

Best times to call the Surgery

The Surgery is usually busier at the start of the week. You may prefer to call later in the week instead.
