GP automated appointment booking
Howdale patients can now book, cancel or change a routine doctors appointment 24/7 by simply phoning the surgery and using the automated appointment system. Please just follow the prompts.
Appointment text and SMS reminders
Both surgeries are now using MJOG which sends a text or SMS to our patients as a reminder of their appointments. Nothing then needs to be done if you are intending to keep the appointment, however, patients can cancel appointments by replying to the text as directed. If you wish to use this service then please ensure that we have your current mobile number recorded on our clinical system. For further information please contact our reception team.
All patients have a named usual doctor. If you are not sure who your usual GP is, then please contact the surgery to find out.

Simply go to the bottom of the home page and click on the circular appointments button and follow the prompts or visit the surgery and ask at reception..
