We run an advanced access appointment system, whereby we aim to offer everybody an appointment on the day they want it. The majority of our appointments are pre-bookable either by the online serviceor by contacting reception. On the day appointments are for emergency’s only. Reception at King's Road Medical Centre is now open from 8am.
The Kings Road Medical Centre has an automated self check-in touch screen, a simple to use system that enables the patient to check themselves into our appointments system without having to wait in the queue.
Should you feel uncomfortable about using such a system, you can obtain help, or book in with our reception staff in the traditional manner.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required. This chaperone may be a family member or friend.
Patients who would like to make appointments online can now do so.
Please bring some form of identification into the surgery and a registration and information sheet will be generated for you.
Once you have this please log into https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk and register.

An interpreter can also be requested if necessary.
Have you Ever Wondered Why You Can't Get an Appointment at the surgery?
See our notice board for the latest figures. If you need to CANCEL an appointment then please let the surgery know.
The doctors and nurses are happy to give advice on the telephone. Please call after 10.00am and ask to speak to the receptionist who will advise you of the best time to call, or will take a message for the doctor/nurse to call you back.
Home visits are for the bedridden or housebound. They should be requested before 10.00am to enable the doctor to organise the call. Please note that lack of transport is not sufficient reason for a doctor to be called out. Children should usually be brought to the surgery. This is in accordance with current national guidelines.
