Top questions

I cannot find an appointment in September or October. What do I do?

Demand is very high at this time of year and many appointments have already been taken.

However, we add new appointments for September and October every weekday between 2:30pm - 5pm. Keep checking the appointment system at 2:30pm everyday until you find one.

We are also adding extra appointments for some weekday evenings and Saturdays to help. If you don't find one straightaway, keep trying. You should get one within a few days.

If you can wait until November, we also add new appointments for dates 9 weeks into the future every weekday at 10am. Keep checking the appointment system at 10am everyday until you find one.

Why do I get the error 'The appointment you selected is no longer available. Please try again'?

This is due to very high demand for appointments in September and October. If this happens, search for a different appointment date/time and try again.

You do not need to cancel the original booking.
