We are also provide pre-booked appointments on one Saturday each month between 8.00 - 13.00

Consultations are by appointment and each routine appointment is for 10 minutes. It is possible to deal with two short problems in this time: if you have more than two, or feel you need more time, please book a double appointment.

Quick Access Surgery

Patients are encouraged to see the same doctor during a particular illness if possible. if you need to be seen by a doctor before the next bookable appointment we operate a quick access surgery every weekday morning which is bookable on the day from 08:30.  

 You must contact the practice before 10am.

Demand is usually high and appointments are given on a first come first served basis. Arriving after 10am may mean that we are unable to see you. You can come again the next morning or ask the reception staff for advice.

 

Saturdays

Appointments can be pre-booked for a Saturday morning but the surgery is open only for those with an appointment.

 

Practice Nurses

Practice nurse appointments are available Monday to Friday.

Teaching Practice

The Miller Practice is a teaching practice and works closely with University College Hospitals and the Royal Free Hospital medical schools.

Occasionally you may be asked if you mind a medical or nursing student being present during your consultation. You have the right to refuse this and refusal will not affect your treatment in any way. However we would be grateful if you could support us in this very worthwhile part of our work.
