Quinton Family Practice
We have two types of appointment. Same day or pre- booked.
Each appointment offered is for 10 minutes which sadly only allows a limited time for discussion so multiple or complex problems may therefore require a further appointment. If you feel that your appointment will exceed 10 minutes please inform the receptionist and she will try and allocate a little more time.
We encourage patients to ring on the day they wish to be seen to make an appointment. Same day appointments can be booked by phoning the surgery after 08.00 am on the day the appointment is needed.
Please ring early on the day to ensure a better choice of appointment.
Routine/Review appointments should be arranged after 9.00am.
If you know in advance when you need to see the doctor (for example for a follow up or routine appointment or for a condition that will wait until it is convenient for you to see a particular doctor) please try to make your appointment a week or so in advance. Pre-booked appointments can be made up to six weeks in advance.
If you need an appointment urgently please phone the surgery as early as possible during the day. If there are no available appointments and you feel that you need to be seen please tell the receptionist why so that they can help you.
If you would like a chaperone in attendance during your consultation/examination please ask.
There is ALWAYS a doctor on call if you require medical attention URGENTLY. Always phone the surgery 0845 604 8213.
These tables highlight the general availability of the doctors in the Quinton Family Practice. It does not take into account holidays or other periods of absence. If you have any queries, or want to check the availability of a doctor on a certain date, please don't hesitate to contact any of the reception staff - they will be happy to assist.

Patients are asked to attend surgery whenever possible as it can sometime be difficult to see and examine a patient in their own home. Better facilities for your treatment and care can be offered in a well-lit, well equipped surgery. If you are too ill to come to the surgery or housebound we are more than happy to visit. Please call the surgery before 10:30am for visits if possible, only urgent visits will be done after this time.
