appointment_1All surgeries at Cartmel are by appointment only and you can make an appointment by telephone (015395 36366) or by calling in to the surgery.

For urgent conditions, we will always try to fit you into the next possible surgery.

Would you like a Chaperone?

When attending the doctor or nurse for some examinations or tests you may prefer to have a chaperone present. Please let our receptionists know if you would like a chaperone. We can give you the following choices.

  • We can rearrange your appointment so that you can be seen by a doctor of the same sex.
  • You may bring a friend or relative of your choice with you.
  • We can arrange for another nurse or doctor to be present during your examination.
  • One of the receptionists can be present, behind a screen, in the consulting room.

Telephone consultations

If you would like a telephone consultation with either the Doctor or the Practice Nurse please ring to make an appointment, exactly the same way as you would to make a face to face consultation. 

We also offered Extended Access Telephone Consultations every Monday, Tuesday and Friday 6.30pm-7.00pm, which must be booked in advance.
