We run an routine appointment system at both surgeries. Routine appointments are 10 minutes long and can be booked up to two weeks in advance either through reception or the SystmOnline service.
To book an appointment, please phone the relevant surgery:

Alternatively, you can book an appointment with your doctor online. To register for the SystmOnline service, please contact a member of the reception staff.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the appointment to someone else.
Urgent Appointments and Telephone Consultations
If you require an urgent appointment and we have no same day appointments available, we will offer you a telephone consultation with the duty doctor who will either try to resolve the problem over the phone or generate an urgent appointment, if necessary. The doctors take urgent phone calls between 8.30am and 9.15am Monday to Friday and 3.30pm and 3.50pm Monday to Friday.
We also offer a routine telephone triage system every day between 12pm and 12.30pm Monday to Friday at the Evergreen Oak Surgery for patients of both surgeries. You will be placed on hold until the Doctor is free to take your call. Calls received are handled in order. The doctors aim to take the phone calls as soon as possible, however, please note that there may be a short wait during busy times.
These consultations are limited and should not be used to request repeat prescriptions.
We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends. If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask. These appointments may be at a different site; for example, Poole General Hospital.
Nurse appointments are available between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Please note the Nurse is available less frequently at Creekmoor Surgery.
To book appointments with the nurse, please contact reception. Please inform reception of the reason for your appointment in order for us to create an appointment of appropriate length.
