To help maintain continuity of care we offer face-to-face consultations and telephone consultations. Patients requesting telephone consultations are given an approximate time when the GP will phone them back (usually a half-an-hour window). All the doctors have personal secretaries, so if you need to get a message to a doctor please ask for his/her personal secretary.
Wherever possible we try to make sure you can see the GP or nurse of your choice within 7 working days (this means the days that the doctor is in surgery). If you do not have preference we aim to see patients within 2 working days.
We aim to keep appointment times, but obviously on occasions you may have an unavoidable wait. To help us maintain a good schedule please let us know if more than one person in the family needs to be seen. We can then give you a longer appointment.
If you require a same day appointment and your regular doctor is not available you may be asked to attend/contact the Larwood Urgent Care Service.
If you call the surgery your call may be recorded for quality and training purposes.
Larwood Urgent Care Service
Larwood Urgent Care Service opened at Larwood Surgery in November 2010. The service is run by GPs and nurse Practitioners and will see patients on a “walk-in” basis who have a medical problem that needs to be dealt with that day. The service is open from 08:30 - 11:15 and 14:30 - 17:15.This service is open to all patients of Larwood & Village Surgeries. We are hoping to make this service available at other sites in the near future.

From the 1st July 2013 we are opening a walk in clinic at our Oakleaf Surgery which runs from 3.30pm – 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
This is a GP lead clinic for URGENT ON THE DAY appointments ONLY.
