We run an enhanced appointment system with a mixture of pre-booked and on the day appointments. This is split as 75% on the day and 25% pre-bookable.
Appointments can be made at reception, by telephoning or using our online service.
All urgent cases will be seen the same day although you may not see the doctor of your choice. Doctors consult from 8.30am to 5.30pm. Please be aware that on days of very high demand we may limit the number of pre -bookable appointments.
Due to high demand most appointments on Mondays are bookable on the day only. However, there are a limited number that can be pre-booked for your convenience.
Tuesday – Friday:
25% of appointments are pre-bookable in advance
75% of appointments are bookable on the day
The practice nurses are highly trained and can deal with a large number of ailments. They have surgeries throughout the day and if any complex issues arise there is always a doctor on hand. The following is a list of minor illnesses that our nurses can deal with:
Acute asthma (Sister Low)
Diarrhoea and vomiting
This is provided daily by Nurse Blackshaw. At this clinic we are able to take blood, dress wounds, ear syringing, new patient medicals and treatment of minor injuries.
If you require any blood tests, please make an appointment with one of our health care assistants.
The Millig Practice offer extended opening hours to accommodate patients who cannot attend the surgery between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm. The surgery will offer these appointments on a Monday morning. These appointments are pre-bookable only.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
Why does the receptionist need to ask what's wrong with me?
Reception staff are trained to ask certain questions to ensure that you receive
- The most appropriate medical care
- From the most appropriate health professional
- At the most appropriate time
Receptionists are asked to collect brief information from patients
- To help doctors prioritise home visits and phone calls
- To ensure patients receive the appropriate level of care
- To direct patients to see the nurse or other health care professional rather than a doctor where appropriate.
Any information given by you is treated strictly confidentially.
