If you need to be seen urgently, please telephone or come into the surgery straight away. You will be offered an appointment the same day, but it may not be with the clinician of your choice.
Children 16 years and younger will be see on the same day.
Appointments can be made either by calling in to the surgery between 8.30am - 6.30pm or by telephoning the surgery between 8.00am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday. Appointments are available Monday to Friday 8.00am – 6.00pm..
- Telephones lines open at 8.00am
- Surgery door opens at 8.30am
We will ask you questions about why you need an appointment and will sometimes direct you to an alternative healthcare practitioner – this may be a pharmacist, dentist, optician, or other local service.
You may book with a clinician of choice up to 4 weeks in advance. However, note that clinicians are sometimes away, which will impact the number of appointments available.
Patients do not need to see a doctor for all illnesses or enquiries and therefore we offer telephone consultation with a clinician. You will be given an approximate time when the doctor will telephone you to discuss.
A Home Visit is provided when a patient who is house bound and unable to attend the surgery, or a resident in a care/nursing home are too unwell to attend the surgery.
