    Depends on how busy they are, but our GP has works on two speeds: SLOW and STOP. She's always late and seems to spend more time wandering through the waiting rooms than actually seeing people. When she finally does get to you usually a hour after your appointment time you get about 5 mins and she's done with you

    Well... not exactly.

    I generally have to phone at least a couple of days in advance to get an appointment. Same day is reserved for emergencies.

    I wanted to pre-book but you can only arrange an appointment for the same day which is a bit annoying.

    Oh god I'm so sorry, I thought it was actually free, I didn't think taxes were used to fund the NHS. I didn't realise this at all. My god.

    If I want an appointment that day I have to phone at 8am or 2pm but they go really quickly so it's nearly impossible to get an appointment for that day. It usually takes about a week (it has been as much as 2 weeks before).

    My GP is the same, lines open 8am-9am... Call after 8:30 and there will be no more same day appointments left.

    Following a rather complicated booking with the automated system, I would generally be assured of an appointment in just over a week.

    My GP is really good tbh. You phone to book an appointment to speak to him on the phone. When you phone back at the time you've been given he decides if you need to see him or if its just a simple perscription you need or if the nurse can deal with you.

    My old GP you got an appointment llike 3/4 weeks after you phoned to make one!
