Appointments

Please ring Tarporley Health Centre to make an appointment on 01829 733456.

All surgeries are by appointment, you can book a routine appointment up to four weeks ahead. We hold back ‘book on the day’ appointments for acute illnesses. If you need to book an on the day appointment, please call the Surgery at 8am.

Each person attending the surgery needs a separate appointment. If you have more than one problem, you will need to book 2 appointments.

If you are unable to attend your appointment, please telephone the surgery and let our reception team know as soon as possible so that someone else can be offered the appointment.

If you need to attend surgery urgently, we will make sure that you can. However, we may not be able to offer you the time or place, or the doctor of your choice.

Please do not be alarmed if the receptionist asks you for the nature of your telephone call when you contact the surgery. The receptionist is trying to ensure that you are seen by the most appropriate person.

Nurse Clinician Appointments

Our Nurse clinician appointments are available on the day and in advance.  The clinics are run by a highly skilled nurse clinician who is able to help with most illnesses.  The Nurse clinician is able to prescribe and is able to refer patients to other services.

Home visits

These visits are undertaken during the course of the working day – between surgeries – for patients who are too poorly to attend surgery. If you think that a home visit is necessary, please telephone before 10.30am so that the doctors may plan their rounds. You will be asked by the receptionist what the problem is to assist the doctor in deciding the urgency of each case.

Enhanced Access

From the 1st October 2022 Patients now have the opportunity to book a routine appointment outside of the usual GP practice opening hours. Dr Campbell and Partners will be offering early morning appointments on a Tuesday morning between 7am – 8am with a GP or Nurse Clinician and Evening appointments between 6.30pm – 8pm on Thursday evening with a GP or Health Care Assistant.

You can book an appointment up to two weeks in advance. To book an appointment please call Tarporley Health Centre on 01829 733456.

On-line Appointments

You can also book an appointment with a GP or Nurse Clinician on-line via the NHS App. Please see below for details on how to access the App.

Currently all the online appointments we offer are TELEPHONE appointments not face to face appointments (PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE SURGERY). When booking online you will be given a time for the telephone call but please be aware that you may not be contacted at the time of your appointment, the timing is a guide only.

On-line Appointments should not be used when booking a Private Medical. This should be booked by contacting Tarporley Health Centre.
