Getting appointments is hard

July 25, 2018
Getting appointments is difficult - I always ring to book an emergency appointment because that's the only way I'll get in at a suitable time. 5 minute appointments which are generally efficient. Receptionists vary, GP is great.

Quick appointment

June 12, 2018
Using Meltham branch but all go through Elmwood only appointments at Meltham. I can get an appointment quickly they always fit you in. It may not be the doctor of choice, but will fit you in. The staff are generally very courtieus and helpful. One doctor is very friendly but doesn't ask any questions and doesn't listen. They don't take on board what you are saying. A couple of the receiptioists are a little abrubt

Virtually impossible to receive continuity of care unless booked online too far in advance, by which time you're either dead or better.
Doctors are fine. Receptionists on auto pilot.

Not easy to get to see the same doctor unless you are prepared to wait a long time.

Very caring and understanding doctors

I have been seeing couple of doctors within the practice for my long term problems and find both of them quite caring and helpful. Best thing I find is that I can get to see them easily and find the option of booking appointments online quite helpful.

Poor attitude from a doctor

August 7, 2015
I had booked an appointment for the Monday afternoon after being advised to do so by a consultant at St James's hospital in Leeds.

That morning the receptionist contacted me to say the appointment had been cancelled due to the doctor having been taken ill and had to go home. Fair enough we all get poorly. I was offered appointments on Tuesday morning with a choice of two doctors. Perfectly acceptable I chose one and turned up in good time.

It was 30 mins past the appointment time when i was called in by the doctor. Not unusual or a great worry I appreciate patients need to discuss issues with the GP.

It's a pity I wasn't extended the same curtesey as the doctor greeted me with 'I'm 30 mins behind, yours is an extra appointment I've fitted in can we stick to any urgent issues?' If it wasn't for the fact I needed to get a hospital appointment/referral arranged I'd have walked out there and then and made a fresh appointment to see a doctor who was prepared to give me the time and respect I, like any patient, deserved.

I was constantly talked across throughout the appointment and left thoroughly upset by the whole process. I will not make an appointment with this doctor again and would actively disuade others from doing so.
