    morning and calls are held in a queue at busy periods and when one call ends another is
    picked up straight away. Unfortunately www.thecloistersmedicalpractice.co.uk this means
                                             the way BT works is that sometimes
    that calls are disconnected after about 7 minutes, this is beyond our control. Please be
    assured we will answer your calls and you will always have the option of speaking to the
    Duty Doctor on the day if we cannot meet your requests for a specific appointment. It
    would help if we were able to keep calls as short as possible between 8.30am and 10am
    so if you feel you need more detailed assistance it would be better to ring after 10am.
    Results can only be given out after 2.30pm

  Appointments

  Just a reminder that appointments with all GP’s are booked at 10 minute intervals and so if you
  have more than one problem to discuss with your GP, they may need to book you a further
  appointment to be able to deal with everything properly.

  If you have any questions about this then please discuss with a receptionist or ask to speak to
  the duty GP who will guide you to book the most appropriate appointment.
