Making an appointment at your GP practice

Find the best way to request an appointment from a GP practice or how to register


Select a GP practice from the list to find the easiest way to make an appointment and get information such as opening hours.

Most GP practices ask you to call to make an appointment. Lines usually open at 8am for urgent, on the day appointments, and 10am for routine appointments that can be booked in advance – but this can vary between practices. Your appointment could be face-to-face, over the phone, or online – depending on what’s appropriate and most suitable.

When you call, a trained care navigator (also known as patient care coordinator or patient advisor) will ask questions to guide you to the best person who can help you. Each practice employs a wide range of health professionals, so you might be offered an appointment with someone other than a doctor or nurse, if they are the right person to give you expert help. Often this means you’ll get an appointment sooner. Find out more about these roles here.

If you have a non-urgent medical enquiry, you can submit an online form through your practice’s eConsult. This is useful for common problems like coughs, back problems or mental health questions or administrative help like sick notes, test results or doctor’s letters.

If you need to register with a GP practice in Portsmouth, you’ll need to do this by contacting the practice directly. Find your nearest GP practice.
