Doctors’ morning surgeries start from 8:40am, and afternoon surgeries from 2:30pm; the last bookable appointment is at 5:40pm (times may change to suit demand). The surgery is open every weekday of the year except bank holidays and does not close at lunchtime or in the afternoon (except for on eight Thursday afternoons per year, for mandatory training; dates of these closures are posted in advance). Appointments must be booked in advance, up to six weeks ahead, in person or by calling 01788 522448. Please note that we offer an online facility to order repeat prescriptions, please contact reception for further information.
If you have an urgent problem and need a same-day appointment, we will always try to fit you in. Please call before 10am for a morning appointment, or after 1pm for an urgent afternoon appointment.
Appointments are ten minutes long. If you have a particularly complicated problem, or several problems to discuss, please ask for a double appointment.
If you can’t attend an appointment you have booked it is important that you let us know so that we can offer it to someone else. If you do attend, but are late, you may be asked to wait until the end of the surgery, or to book another appointment.
Every patient registered with Dunchurch Surgery has a named, accountable GP who is one of the partners. Appointments are offered by at least one of the partners every morning and every afternoon, though the availability of individual partners varies with demand, leave, training and managerial requirements. Other doctors are also often available for both morning and afternoon surgeries. The Practice has been accredited for training General Practitioners since 2000, and fully-qualified doctors work here under the close supervision of Dr Czerniewski, Dr Reynolds and Dr Chesser. If you book in advance you can choose which doctor you want to see, though this may not be possible at short-notice.
The Practice offers general medical services, family planning advice, maternity care, minor surgery and child health surveillance. Most problems can be dealt with during a normal appointment, including cervical smears and joint injections, but for certain procedures such as minor surgery, freezing of warts or for child health surveillance you may be asked to book a special appointment.
Extended Hours- Thursday evenings- We are able to offer some pre-booked appointments with a doctor or nurse on Thursday evenings from 18.30. We are working within the Department for Health framework for extended hours and some services will not be available, for example a chaperone may not be available for some examinations. Please note that during these hours, only patients with an appointment will be granted Admission to the Surgery.
We have set up an online system to both order repeat prescriptions and to book or cancel appointments.
Please contact reception for further information.
