Brunel Medical Practice


bp_medicalExcept in emergencies, all consultations are made by appointment.

Appointments are made via a central computer system and our Appointment Line is open between 08:30hrs and 1800hrs Monday to Friday.

Our patients’ records are computerised and accessible from each of the Surgery buildings. We operate a ‘book on the day’ appointment system.

We will try to offer you an appointment that will meet your requirements in choice of doctor and location. There will be times, however, when the only appointment available will be with a doctor other than your regular doctor and at a different building.

We do have a number of GP appointments that can be booked in advance either early in the morning or late afternoon.

Our practice nursing team appointments may be booked up to four weeks in advance.

Routine checks for blood pressure, contraceptive pills and HRT etc., can be booked with a practice nurse.
