Are doctors having face-to-face appointments?

Hey, so the question is in the title, I'm wanting to make an appointment with my GP about my mental health and to get help but I'm not sure whether you can have appointments again or this is over the phone. I personally prefer the experience of seeing the GP in person as I don't feel as though it is as helpful as seeing them in person.

Also this is the first time I have ever made this sort of appointment, so what should I say when I make the call? Will they ask my name and what do I say?

GPs are having face-to-face appointments but only if it is deemed necessary by them - i.e. they will speak to you on the phone first and then decide if you need to come in or if it is something that can just be dealt with over the phone.

Usually, when you call up to make an appointment they ask your name, DOB and a reason for the appointment (you can say it's confidential if you don't want to tell the receptionist).

Thank you, I was a bit unsure of what to expect especially if the receptionist tries to act like she is the doctor. So thats all good then, thank you!
