"Getting an appointment with my GP in Sidmouth"

Today I phoned Sidmouth health centre to see a doctor for a routine appointment.
I was told that as my GP only worked on Fridays, I could not have an appointment until 11th November. I am on holiday then, so the first time I could see my GP was 25th November.
I asked if I could see another doctor and was told no, I had to wait to see my own GP. I do not believe this to be the case, and I do not believe I should wait 5 weeks to see my own GP.
If I am registered, through no choice of my own, with a GP who only works 1 day a week, there has to be an alternative, without going through the emergency duty doctor system.
