Appointments can be made in person at reception or by calling 01733 265535 from 08:00.
We offer appointments on the day as well as pre-bookable appointments with all our clinicians. You can also now book online if you have signed up for online services
Appointments are available from 08:30am to 18:00 Monday to Friday, with later appointments until 20:30 available at the GP Hub in Boroughbury Medical Centre, Craig Street, Peterborough PE1 2EJ - these appointments can be booked by receptionists at Westwood Clinic for you.
Appointments with GPs and Advanced Care Practitioners (practitioners with skills to treat minor illness and injury and issue prescriptions) can be booked online through the APPOINTMENTS screen. These slots are NOT for blood tests, dressings, smears, ear syringing and other nurse based activities and the clinicians will not perform these tasks.
If you feel that your concern can be discussed with the doctor over the telephone, you can book a telephone consultation.The doctor will normally call you back after morning surgery or before afternoon surgery starts.
You can also request a telephone consultation with the practice nurse.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.
Cancellations & Patient DNA's
Due to an increase in the number of wasted appointments through patient’s failing to attend without informing the surgery it has become necessary to implement the following policy:
If you fail to attend for 3 appointments within a year you may be removed from this practice list and have to find an alternative doctor.
If you cannot attend your appointments for any reason please let us know as soon as possible, we can then offer the appointment to someone else.
