We strive to offer our patients an appointment within 48 hours. We also offer pre-bookable appointments up to 3 months in advance.
A Standard GP appointment slot is 10 minutes. If you have more than one issue to discuss, or feel that you may need a longer consultation time for a more complex problem, then you can request to book a double appointment.
Some Nurse appointments: Dressing changes, Diabetes checks, Asthma reviews and smears for example, may be 15, 20 or 30 minutes. You will be advised of this at the time of making your appointment.
Please make your appointment with your usual registered GP.
This to ensure you receive continuity of care.
Cam Surgery Patients
Please ring 01453 540066 to make an appointment.
Uley Surgery Patients
Please ring 01453 860459 to make an appointment.
We are also happy to offer our patients a telephone consultation with a Doctor or a Nurse.
If you feel you have an urgent problem that you would like to discuss with the Doctor or Nurse and are not able to get to the surgery for an appointment on the day, we can offer that they call you back. Unfortunately, we are not able to give a specific time when this may happen as it is very much dependent on the appointments diary for that day.
If the matter is not urgent, but you would like to discuss details with a Doctor or Nurse, then we can book a phone slot appointment for you in the future, on a day that is more convenient for you.
Please inform Reception as soon as possible if you have to cancel your appointment as someone else may need to see a Doctor urgently.

Improved Access Clinics
Improved access clinics are provided to help people who need same day appointments. There is an Improved Access clinic in every area of Gloucestershire. Your nearest clinic is at The Vale Hospital or at Wotton-under-Edge but you can go to whichever clinic is most convenient for you. The clinics are staffed by experienced local GPs. Clinics are open during the week, including Saturdays.
How do I access a clinic?
Ring your GP practice as normal. A receptionist will take some brief details of your medical problem and offer a appointment if this would be suitable for you. You may also be offered an appointment if you attend a Minor Injury & Illness Unit at a community hospital.
What sort of problems are suitable for Improved Access
Improved Access is suitable for people with medical problems that are new - such as tonsillitis - or that have got worse, for example someone with COPD (also known as emphysema) who may have a chest infection that needs treating quickly.
Are there problems that are not suitable for Improved Access
Usually, if you have already seen your own GP about a problem, or the appointment is about a long-term medical condition, it would be more appropriate if you continue to see your own GP who already knows about your condition, including tests and treatments that you have received. There are some exceptions – for example, if your long term condition, such as COPD or asthma, has temporarily got worse due to a chest infection, Improved Access Clinics will usually be able to help. When you ring your GP surgery, the doctor or nurse who speaks to you will be able to advise whether this clinic is suitable for you.
Do Improved Access clinics have access to my medical records?
At the moment, doctors will be able to access your records if you give them permission to do so.
