As of Monday 6th February we are changing our appointments booking system following feedback from patients.
Appointments will now be released at
8.00am for the morning surgeries
13.00pm for the afternoon surgeries.
Please note the pm appointments will not be released before 13.00pm for the afternoon and are not bookable before this time.
A number of Pre-bookable routine apps will be offered by each clinician up to two weeks in advance.
There will be a number of Book on the day appointments available on an AM & PM basis each day that will be offered to patients where by their need to see a GP is urgent (details of the urgency will be noted down by the receptionist and passed to the GP)
There will be a number of appointments that will be released each day in order for patients to access 48 hours in advance. This will allow patients who are working to be able to plan around this.
We would like to make our patients aware that Padgate Medical Centre is a training practice and at times there may be a trainee present during your consultation. If you do not wish to have a trainee present during your consultation please inform our reception team.
On-Line booking is now available
If you wish to register for on-line booking you will need to call into the surgery and obtain a user name and password. We will need proof of identification when registering eg. photo driving license or passport.

Did you know...?
- The NHS belongs to all of us – help us to keep it working smoothly by turning up for appointments
- Every time you see a GP it costs the NHS £43, on average, for a 12-minute consultation
- A visit to Accident and Emergency costs £112
Do remember that an appointment is for one patient only. If you cannot keep your appointment, please let the reception staff know – we are a busy practice and someone else will always want to take advantage of your cancellation.
If you have a lot to discuss with the doctor, please advise the reception staff who can give you a longer appointment, thus avoiding delays for other patients.
Although you register with one of the doctors by name, you can, by choice, consult any of the doctors provided that there is an appointment available. All consultations are by appointment. Normally, the receptionist will offer you the next available appointment but please let her know if you feel the problem is urgent.
Please let us know when you arrive at the surgery for your appointment. A self check-in machine has now been installed for your convenience. It is extremely easy to use – just follow the instructions on the screen.
If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for your appointment you may be asked to rebook.
If you require a chaperone during your appointment, please inform the receptionist.
